    Following Ufa's elimination from the KHL playoffs, goaltender Andrey Vasilevskiy was returned to Ufa Jr. to appear for the team's junior club in their Eastern Conference Semifinals series against Omsk Jr.

    The series began on Monday, 3-25-13, with Ufa Jr. dropping a 2-1 decision in a shootout. Vasilevskiy stopped 32 of 33 shots he faced in regulation and overtime but was beaten by both shooters he faced in the penalty shot session for the shootout loss.

    Game Two was Tuesday, 3-26-13, and saw Omsk Jr. smoke Ufa Jr. 5-2. Vasilevskiy stopped just 22 of 27 shots in the loss.

    Game Three was today, 3-29-13, and unfortunately saw Ufa Jr. eliminated by virtue of a 3-1 Omsk Jr. victory. Vasilevskiy stopped 24 of 27 in the series clinching loss.

    Vasilevskiy finished the MHL playoffs with a 0-2-1 mark, 0 shutouts, a 2.85 GAA, and a .897 save percentage. All speculation now turns to the possibility of the talented first rounder signing a contract with the Lightning and possibly beginning his North American pro career next season with the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL.

    KHL Playoffs (Russia):

    Eastern Conference
    (1)Kazan 4 vs. (5)Ufa 3
    Kazan Wins the Series 4-3
    Andrey Vasilevskiy, Ufa, DNP
    Playoff totals: 0 GP, 0-0-0, 0 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
    Regular season totals (KHL): 8 GP, 4-1-0, 1 SO, 2.22 GAA, .924 sv%
    Regular season totals (MHL): 27 GP, 20-6-1, 3 SO, 1.93 GAA, .930 sv%

    Ex-NHLer Nikolai Zherdev had a goal as Kazan squeaked by Ufa in a 4-3 Game Seven triumph to advance to the KHL Eastern Conference Finals. Ex-NHLer Brent Sopel had a goal in defeat for Ufa. Lightning prospect netminder Andrey Vasilevskiy did not play in the playoffs, and speculation will now turn toward his potential signing with the club. His junior club remains alive in the MHL playoffs, so it is possible he re-joins his former team.

    Kazan advances to play Chelyabinsk and the last Lightning prospect survivor in the KHL playoffs, Nikita Nesterov. Game One is slated for Saturday. SKA St. Petersburg and Dynamo Moscow are facing off in the Western Finals.

    Elitserien Playoffs (Sweden)
    Quarterfinals
    Brynas 0 @ Skelleftea 4
    Skelleftea wins the series 4-0

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, -1, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
    Playoff totals: 4 GP, 0-0-0, -5, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 55 GP, 18-10-28, -9, 16 PIM

    Brynas entered game four of the best-of-seven series with their season on life-support, needing a win to stay alive, but crumbled after Skelleftea struck on the power play approaching the midpoint of the middle frame and wound up shutout and swept in front of the home crowd. Just as had been the case in the three previous matches, Brynas had difficulty solving Skelleftea's goaltending, even despite seeing more balance in the frequency of opportunities. Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist, who made every start for Brynas, stopped 29 of 32 Skelleftea attempts on net. Like his club, Johan Harju, who was his team's leading goal-scorer and among the team leaders in total production in the regular season, finished his postseason in extremely disappointing fashion having gone pointless in the series.

    Quarterfinals
    Brynas 1 @ Skelleftea 4
    Skelleftea leads the series 3-0

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, -1, 1 SOG, 0 PIM

    Season totals: 55 GP, 18-10-28, -9, 16 PIM

    Brynas came into the third game of the best-of-seven series in desperate need of a win but came up well short, allowing Skelleftea to score four unanswered goals after taking the initial lead just past the midpoint of the middle period, Saturday night. Brynas only managed to get 22 of 36 attempted shots on goal while, as was the case in the first match, Skelleftea was relentless with its possession game, registering 45 shots, 19 of which came in the final frame, on 60 attempts. Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist was back between the pipes after being pulled in the previous match. Holmqvist, who was tested early and often, made 41 saves. Johan Harju, like so many of his teammates, continues to find himself stifled. Brynas will now host Skelleftea on Monday with their season in grave jeopardy of coming to the swiftest conclusion possible.
