Love love love Kozuka and this program. Wish he had been perfect but alas... Think he will need mistakes from the men currently ahead of him to get up on the podium.
Good job by Takahiko, just fall on opening quad? then stumble on 3R later on in the program, but excellent spins, fw, et al.
Great triple axels from Kozuka and I think he'll get credit for the quad. Just a fall and some mishaps at the end, but a good performance looking toward Worlds.
Takahiko KOZUKA (JPN)
Music: Piano Concerto No. 1 by Franz Liszt
4T - fall
3A+2T+2Lo - nice
3Lo - twofooted, turnout
FCCoSp - nice scratch spin
A couple of mistakes...will it be enough to pull himself on the podium?
Score: 157.27, total 223.52 and into 1st for now
Shawn is very artistic but if you compare his power and run of the blade to some of the very top skaters he falls a little short.
Ouch 2 falls already for Kevin :/

4T - fall
Score: 137.30, PB, total 201.98, PB, and into 2nd for now
Quad king will blow the roof off.
Kevin will have a perfect program.
This is sad to watch. Really to bad that Kevin could never put it together this season, not really sure what lays in store for him in the future.
