Russia will host Winter Olympics 2014 in Sochi city and certainly the Olympics will have its own Olympic mascot. Today there is an online competition and poll going for the best idea for the mascot and here is the current leader – Zoich.

The Ice Battle of Kontinental Hockey League

KHL game between Avangard and Vityaz hockey teams got canceled after four minutes due countless brawls, including a couple of fights before the game began. The game was abandoned due to neither side having the requisite number of players to continue, as most of the playing staff had received penalties until the end of the game.

In all, 16 Vityaz players were handed a total of 306 minutes of penalties, and 17 Avangard players received a total of 321 minutes. And here is the video of this “epic” game.
