ice hockey is a magical game full of wonder... its fast, furious, dangerous, exciting, and most prolly the greatest team sport on the planet... wherever it is played, boys become men, men become brothers, rivalries are set, and memories are made that last a life-time...
44 ice hockey souls were lost in an unbelievably senseless russian air disaster just minutes after take off on september 7, 2011.. the men (and boys) of lokomotiv yaroslavl were flying to minsk, belarus, to open their khl season against dynamo minsk..

here is a tribute to the team that was lokomotiv yaroslavl..

rest in peace..

boys. dont. cry.
