Victoria Cup

On October 1, 2008 Metallurg Magnitogorsk played against NHL's New York Rangers in the inaugural Victoria Cup at the PostFinance Arena in Berne. Metallurg Magnitogorsk led most of the game, 3-0 at one point, but ultimately lost 4-3 by the Rangers' Ryan Callahan breakaway goal with 20 seconds remaining in the game. Denis Platonov, Vladimir Malenkikh, and Nikolai Zavarukhin scored for Metallurg, and Dan Fritsche scored and Chris Drury scored twice for the Rangers. As a sign of respect, Russian Dimitri Kalinin and Ukrainian Nikolai Zherdev accepted the Victoria Cup trophy on the behalf of the New York Rangers[1]. American analysts and broadcasters reported a rumor that team management was to reward all 22 the Metallurg Magnitogorsk players $100,000 USD for victory.
