From Russian (Fans) With Love

Latvian national team member and Dynamo Riga goalie Edgars Masalskis was robbed and assaulted last week after a Russian league game, suffering a broken ankle and probably a broken spirit.  HockeyBuzz has more of the details but the first question in my mind is did Ray Emery and Wade Dubielewicz think about this kind of thing before heading to Russia?  The photo above was taken at the World Championships last season when Masalskis was in net vs. Norway.  It would have been a better Kodak moment if he’d been playing Russia when this happened but still, it was the best way I could try to make light of the way he must have been feeling last week.  Speedy recovery to Edgars and a serious heads-up to Emery and Dubie… you’re not in Kansas anymore.
