Extraleague Update Machine: 10-29-04: Heal me...

Well the Baseball playoffs are over and there' s no hockey to watch on TV at the moment. I was going to go for a longer update, but I don't have the energy right now.

Onto the Extraliga update...where the action really is.

1. Injury Returns - Jaromir Jagr returned from injury just in time to help Kladno beat Trinec 2-0 (bastard!). Roman Cechmanek returned to help lead struggling Vsetin to a win over Zlin (more on this below). Ladislav Nagy and Vlado Orszagh both returned from their respective injuries as well.

2. Friday Night Fights - Martin Erat, Rostislav Klesla, and Petr Cajanek were all involved in a massive 3rd period brawl in this game, a 3-2 Vsetin win.
A total of 246 minutes of penalties were called in this game, no doubt helping some lucky poolsters pile up the PIM points.

3. Forgotten Canucks goalie prospect Lukas Mensator finally got a promotion from the 1st division and shut out a loaded Litvinov squad with 42 saves altogether! Too bad the Canucks are so invested in Alex Auld and Rob McVicar... I have a sinking feeling that the Canucks will never give Mensator a real chance within their organization.

Now for the stats...
