Oof! In a battle between old school and new school Lightning goaltending prospects, Vasily Koshechkin taught the new blood a serious lesson. The big veteran netminder logged an 18 save shutout in Cherepovets' 6-0 spanking of Bratislava. Ex-Lightning draft pick Denis Kazionov continued his quest to get back on Bolt Prospects' daily updates by scoring his 5th and 6th goals of the season, both on the power play, for Severstal.
