The Malik Report

Very briefly: Two of the five Red Wings prospects who took part in the World Junior Championships have games left to play tomorrow.
Teemu Pulkkinen registered a goal and an assist in Finland’s wild 8-4 win over Slovakia, and while Marek Tvrdon scored a goal and an injured Tomas Jurco played through a hip flexor injury and added an assist, the Slovaks couldn’t handle the Finns’ offensive power.
In the other quarterfinal, Petr Mrazek stopped 43 of the 45 shots he faced, but the Russians dropped the Czech Republic 2-1 in overtime.
The Finns will face off against Wings prospect Mattias Backman and Sweden in the first quarterfinal at 5 PM EST on Tuesday, and the Russians will face Canada at 9 PM. Both games will air on the NHL Network in the U.S. and TSN in Canada.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
