BOISBRIAND, Que. -- Andrei Vasilevski made 31 saves as the Russian All-Stars romped to a 6-2 victory over Team QMJHL in Game 1 of the Canadian Hockey League's Subway Super Series on Monday.

Nail Yakupov, Mikhail Grigorenko, Maxim Shalunov, Mikhail Naumenkov, Valentin Zykov and Alexander Khokhlachev each scored for Russia.

Xavier Ouellet and Jean-Sebastien Dea replied for the QMJHL.

Grigorenko and Yakupov struck first for Russia. Grigorenko, a Quebec Remparts forward, beat QMJHL goalie Etienne Marcoux at 9:49 in the first period.

Yakupov, who was selected first overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the NHL draft earlier this year, made it 2-0 after he burst into the offensive zone and beat Marcoux with a nifty shot.

Ouellet made a game of it with a power-play goal 2:53 into the second, but Russia scored three unanswered goals to put the game out of reach.

Shalunov and Naumenkov scored in the second, then Khokhlachev added another in the third for a 5-1 lead.

Dea got one back on the power play at 14:39, but Zykov's goal with less than three minutes left capped the scoring.

The six-game series continues Wednesday in Val-d'Or, Que., before moving to the OHL and WHL for two games apiece.
