Tuesday EuroWings Roundup

Last we looked at our contingency of Red Wings players in Europe, we were all-smiles about three wins for our guys.

On Saturday, Red Wings players went 3-for-3 in games played. Let's take a look at how they've fared since and what's upcoming.

Pavel Datsyuk

CSKA Moscow (KHL)

CSKA played against Evgeni Malkin and Metallurg Magnitogorsk on Monday and came away with a 2-1 shootout victory. Pavel played more than 24 minutes this time and was consistently matched up against Malkin's line. Neither Russian star scored, but from the very limited amount I saw, I'd say Malkin's line carried the play more. Even better, Datsyuk took a tripping penalty in overtime for his club and missed on his shootout attempt. Whatever, you don't play 24 minutes as a forward keeping Evgeni Malkin off the scoreboard and call that a bad game.

CSKA plays again on Thursday versus Spartak. Puck drops at 11:45am EST.

Valtteri Filppula

Jokerit Helsinki (SM-Liiga, Finland)

Jokerit played today against Karpat Oulu (the Weasels). Teemu Pulkkinen assisted on the game's first goal, but the Jokers went on to give up the next three before ultimately falling 4-2. Valtteri Filppula led all Jokerit forwards in ice time with 21:50 played, but ended the game with a -2 rating and 2 shots on goal.

Jokerit plays again tomorrow at 11:30 versus HIFK SCUBA, the SM-Liiga team of Sean Bergenheim, Patrick O'Sullivan, and Markus Granlund (Mikael's little brother).

Jakub Kindl

HC Pardubice (Czech Extraliga)

Pardubice has played two games since we last updated and both ended in shootouts. On Sunday, Kindl's team beat Karlovy Vary 2-1 in penalty shots, but they lost today 4-3 against Litvinov. Kindl only played the Sunday game though, as he announced on Twitter that a pulled groin kept him out of today's matchup.

Pardubice's next game is against HC Vitkovice with Pavel Kubina and noted Czech Roman Polak. That game starts at 10am EST.

Damien Brunner

EV Zug (Swiss A League)

Zug lost to EHC Biel 2-1 today after falling behind 2-0 (on two points by Tyler Seguin). Brunner scored Zug's lone goal in the 58th minute of the match, but they couldn't pull even. Brunner continues to lead his team in points and shots on goal, and is second in his league in scoring behind Cody Almond.

Zug's next match will be Friday against SC Bern at 1:45pm EST. Roman Josi plays for Bern, so I don't like them.
