Laurent Brossoit leads WHL to shootout win over Russians in Super Series
Final game of Super Series goes Thursday night in Victoria, B.C.
Laurent Brossoit stopped 30 shots and all three shooters in the shootout to lead the Western Hockey League all-stars to a 1-0 win over Team Russia on Wednesday in the fifth game of the Subway Super Series.
Brossoit stopped each of the Russian shooters in the shootout, including Nail Yakupov, last summer's first-overall draft choice by the Edmonton Oilers.
Brossoit, a Calgary Flames draft choice and current Edmonton Oil King, hails from Surrey, B.C, just down the road from the Pacific Coliseum.
Hunter Shinkaruk, Mark McNeill and Sam Reinhart scored in the shootout.
Andrei Makarov made 35 saves for Russia.
Russia split the first four games of the Super Series, winning 6-2 and losing 5-2 to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and then swapping 2-1 victories with the Ontario Hockey League.
