KHL's Lokomotiv lost to plane crash

While we're supposed to be covering the Tampa Bay Lightning and the National Hockey League, a tragedy has occured in the Kontinental Hockey League today.  Another tragedy in the ice hockey world that has already felt too much loss this summer.

This story is breaking, but the entire Lokomotive hockey team has been killed in a plane crash.  The team includes former NHL'ers Pavol Demitra and Ruslan Salei among others.

From the Russian site Lifenews.ru (translated through Google):

In a plane crash near Yaroslavl killed dozens of prominent athletes, including head coach and Brad McCrimmon.

The Yak-42 flew to Minsk ice hockey team - told Life News in law enforcement. In a disaster, only one person survived.

The plane disappeared from the screens of about 15.50 Moscow time. As it turned out, had to climb aboard just 5000 meters and then collapsed.

This is another shocking and sobering event for the hockey world, and will be felt across North America and Europe.
