Dice Murakami's footwork was very entertaining, I thought!
From a russian post:

Kerrs extend their lead over rest of the pack with close battle for silver and bronze between pairs from Ukraine and Russia.

I saw the Kerrs OD and they messed up the last part of the side by side step sequence as well as the twizzles.
Even without the mistakes, there still hasn't been improvement with the partnering, closeness, and line issues they had in the past, and the program itself is only just "ok". The music choice and a few choreographic touches that play to the audience will probably make it popular with casual viewers and people who already like the Kerrs, but I don't think it'll win many converts or move them up.

She fell during crossovers because she was too close to the boards. She is fighter! That fall happened just few seconds before her flip jump - so she lost a lot of speed needed for the jump but she still went for triple, landing wasn't ideal she fell out of it.
And, of course, he won

ETA: Thanks for the protocols, Hsuhs!
Congrats to Voronov for winning the LP. By tiny margin, but still.
Brezina is also coming back from injury, isn't he? I hope he gets better as the season goes on. I loved him at Nebelhorn last season.
It seems that Murakami has caught a Zayak bug from Oda while training on the same rink. Morozov will have a fit!
