Click above as CBC Sports figure skating analysts Kurt Browning and Pj Kwong look ahead to this week’s Russian Grand Prix.

Kurt and Pj discuss what the absence of hometown hero and Olympic women's champion AdelinaSotnikova will mean to the event.

Sotnikova's leg is in plaster following a training injury last Thursday.

But they both see the competition as a big opportunity for Alaine Chartrand.

The Prescott, Ont., skater will be looking to improve on her seventh-place finish at the Skate Canada event in late October in Kelowna, B.C.
