MOSCOW - U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic reached the final of the Kremlin Cup on Saturday, beating Kazakhstans Mikhail Kukushkin 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.In Sundays final, the big-serving Croatian will seek his fourth title of the season against Spains Roberto Bautista Agut.It was very difficult, Cilic said. I felt that he was hitting the ball very, very good and I felt I wasnt serving as well as yesterday.The last time I played Bautista was in 2002 and we were under 14s, so its going to be interesting. Were very good friends, Cilic added. He plays very well from the back line and he doesnt make mistakes, so its going to be difficult.The womens final will pit sixth-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia will play Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania.Cilic faced stiff resistance from world No. 74 Kukushkin, despite the 68 ranking places separating them, and landed just 55 per cent of first serves.Kukushkin is a Moscow specialist, having reached the final last year before losing to Richard Gasquet.Earlier in the day, Cilic secured qualification for the ATP tour finals based on his ranking.World no. 16 Bautista Agut, seeded fifth in Moscow, will play in his third final of a breakout season after beating third-seeded Latvian Ernests Gulbis 6-4, 6-4.I served well and moved well along the court, Bautista Agut said. Ive won both finals that Ive been playing this year. I feel confident.In the semifinals of the womens WTA event, Pavlyuchenkova dominated Czech qualifier Katerina Siniakov from start to finish, winning 6-2, 6-2 to reach her 10th career final on the WTA tour.Pavlyuchenkova dominated the Czech qualifier from start to finish, winning 6-2, 6-2 to reach her 10th career final on the WTA tour.The 18-year-old Siniakova was playing in her first WTA semifinal.My opponent actually didnt play too badly, Pavlyuchenkova said. She wasnt frightened today and started well. I think I did everything right today.Earlier, Begu fought to a 7-6 (5), 1-6, 6-3 win over fourth-seeded Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic.Begu enters her first final since beating Donna Vekic in Tashkent in 2012.No pressure at all, Im just enjoying the tournament, Begu said. I had a really bad year last year, struggling with a shoulder injury, so now Im just really happy to be back.In the crowd for Pavlyuchenkovas match was Russian tennis chief and tournament chairman Shamil Tarpischev, despite the WTA saying Friday he would be banned for a year after making derogatory comments about Serena and Venus Williams.Tarpischev was accompanied by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, whose arrival caused the start of the match to be delayed for security reasons.

Jimmy Howard made 44 saves and Henrik Zetterberg scored two goals, leading the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Saturday night.ANAHEIM, Calif. - Frederik Andersen has plenty of wins in his brief time with the Anaheim Ducks, but the goalie had never before stopped every puck sent his way.That changed Sunday when Andersen turned away all 28 shots in his first career shutout, leading Anaheim to a resounding 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues.Andersen joined former Boston goalie Ross Brooks as the only two goalies in NHL history to win 25 of their first 30 starts. Andersen improved to 25-5 in his short career, but the young netminder was more excited about finally keeping a clean sheet.Oh, I knew. I knew I didnt have one, Andersen said. Thats something you remember, obviously. Its like the players when they get that first goal. They will remember it forever.Andersen, who never started five consecutive games during his rookie season, was rarely challenged as the Ducks (5-1-0) won their fifth straight with Andersen in net. They also extended their home winning streak against St. Louis to eight games.I think we just started playing like we wanted to, Andersen said. We came out really good defensively, and on offence, too, the whole 60 minutes. That was a really good team effort today.Andersen delivered his best save when he slid back across the crease and used his blocker to deny Alexander Steen on an odd-man rush early in the second period.Sami Vatanen had his first career multigoal game for the Ducks, scoring with a pair of blistering one-timers on the power play.Brian Elliott made 22 saves for the Blues (2-2-1), who went 1-1-1 on their road trip. St. Louis played without free-agent prize Paul Stastny, who sustained an upper-body injury Friday against Arizona.They were a step ahead of us most of the night, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. Thought their checking was a step ahead. Their puck support was a step ahead. They looked quicker on pucks and quicker to pucks than we were.Matt Beeleskey collected a clever entry pass from Rickard Rakell and unleashed a slap shot past Elliott at 1:37 of the first period for his fourth goal of the season.ddddddddddddAnaheim sustained pressure early, but needed an impressive stick save by defenceman Clayton Stoner to thwart a golden chance for Jaden Schwartz.Its expected to feel a little slow out there, but that is something you have to battle through, Elliott said after the Blues third game in four nights. The ice is a little softer out here, and you have to play smart hockey and know that the easy plays arent going to be there. Probably for half the game, we were not doing the things that make us successful.Vatanen made it 2-0 with a rocket shot from just inside the blue line late in the first period, leaving Elliott no time to react. Vatanen added his fifth career power-play goal with 15:37 left in the second, sending it in off a no-look pass from Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf.The other four guys did the work there, said Vatanen, who became the sixth Anaheim defenceman with multiple power-play goals in a game. I just got my stick on the ice and the puck comes there, and it was an empty net. I just needed to put it in.When the Ducks went back on the power play 2 minutes later, the Honda Center crowd screamed for Vatanen to shoot every time he touched the puck, but he said he never heard those pleas.Getzlaf had two assists, but Corey Perrys franchise-best streak of five games with a point to start the season came to an end.NOTES: St. Louis D Petteri Lindbohm made his NHL debut, playing 14:05. C Jori Lehtera, who had one goal and two assists against Arizona, and D Jordan Leopold were scratched. ... Anaheim RW Chris Wagner was a scratch after making his NHL debut against Minnesota on Friday. D Mark Fistric was scratched with flu-like symptoms and has yet to appear in a game this season.
