How the KHL play differs from the NHL

From Mark Hartigan’s blog at The Hockey News:

Now a little about the style of game play: I play for Dinamo Riga and so far we have started the season with a 1-2-2 record. The hockey is quite fast with a lot of skilled forwards and puck-moving defensemen. There is not as much hitting or fighting; the Kontinental League promotes more of a skill game. We have our first home game on Sept. 11 and it’d be great to play a little better for our fans. From what I have heard, it’ll be a full house with a lot of Latvians who really love their hockey.

Not an overly surprising revelation from Hartigan, but still interesting nonetheless.
