Lighting the lamp abroad

My autumn mornings seem a little more empty than usual. No longer am I spitting out my coffee to some goal that Crosby scored from his knees or smiling as I watch the leafs blow, yet again, another 2 goal lead. But just cause hockey isn’t happening on this side of the pond doesn’t mean people like me should have to watch baseball highlights. Seriously who likes baseball? There are tons of players putting up numbers overseas, so here’s some of the NHL’s finest making their mark in the old country.

Ovi still scoring in ways everyone else wish they could.

Datsyuk picks pockets in Russia as well.

Anze pays respect to the Swedes with his best Forsberg impression.

Geno showing his Russian brothers why he dominants any league he plays in.

Semin waits it out in Russia’s other Pro league.
