ST. PETERSBURG, Russia -- Jaromir Jagr scored an overtime winner and Russia's Avangard Omsk came from behind to beat Finnish champion Karpat Oulu 2-1 in the inaugural European Champions Cup final on Sunday.
 

Jagr, the only NHL player on Avangard, scored the winner off a pass from Maxim Sushinsky at 14:38 in overtime. He had assisted Alexei Kalyuzhny on the team's first goal.

"It was our most difficult match in two years," Avangard captain Oleg Tverdovsky said.

Avangard opened strongly and former NHL player Alexei Kovalenko came close to scoring, but the puck glided across the goal mouth inches from the line. Dmitry Zatonsky squandered another chance, failing to connect with Jagr's pass on a power play.

Defenseman Iikka Mikkola gave Karpat the lead on a slap shot from the blue line. After the goal, Karpat changed its tactics and hung back in defense to preserve its lead.

It's so hard to believe what hockey has come to. I have no hockey to watch and I'm reading how the former NHL'ers are doing in Europe. It's good that they are back playing and all, just too bad it's not over here.

I miss hockey too man. The junior tournament was sweet, but it's not enough.
