When I said yesterday that teams have no chance if they only get 18 shots on Andrei Vasilevski, I forgot to post the caveat that they might have a chance if they allow only 12 shots and shut the team in front of Vasilevski out. That happened today as he fell for the first time this season 1-0 to Nizhnekamsk Jr. The winning goal was scored with just 7 seconds left in regulation, no less. Amazing stuff, even in defeat. Ufa Jr. draws Perm Jr. next on Saturday.
