    Riku Helenius, JYP, DNP
    Season totals: 33 GP, 21-9-1, 7 SO, 1.64 GAA, .936 sv%

    With nothing on the line, JYP started backup Joni Myllykoski in their regular season ending 4-1 win over Karpat. JYP finishes the regular season 4th on the SM-liiga table. Karpat, which would've finished in the top-6 of the league with a win, instead finishes 7th and will now have to play in the opening play-in round. JYP already knows who their Semifinal Round opponent will be: 5th seed Assat. The Semifinals will begin next Thursday, the 22nd.

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    Jokerit @ @ JYP 3 (OT)
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 30/32, 1.98 GAA, .938 sv%
    Season totals: 33 GP, 21-9-1, 7 SO, 1.64 GAA, .936 sv%

    Sami Vatanen's goal at 0:45 of overtime propelled JYP to a 3-2 win over Jokerit and clinched a first round bye in the postseason for his club. Lightning prospect Riku Helenius stopped 30 shots in the game and was named the second star. JYP's final game of the regular season will come against a hungry Karpat club on Thursday. Karpat is tied with Jokerit at 99 points for the 6th spot on the SM-liiga table, which is the last spot in the standings that will receive a first round bye. JYP will finish no worse than 5th.

    Will Riku Helenius, second in the league in save percentage and first in GAA and shutouts, win the coveted Urpo Ylonen Trophy as the league's best netminder? Past winners of the award have included Niklas Backstrom, Karri Lehtonen, Pasi Nurminen, Miikka Kiprusoff, and Tim Thomas, all of whom went on to become starting goaltenders in the NHL. Can Bolt Prospects simultaneously sustain a campaign to win the Urpo Ylonen for Helenius and AHL Coach of the Year for Jon Cooper?

    Give Rik the Urpo!

    KHL Eastern Conference Semifinals (Russia):
    The field is now set in the Eastern Conference of the KHL. Top seed Chelyabinsk will face Ak Bars Kazan beginning on Wednesday with Game One of the series. With his MHL club finished for the season, expect Chelyabinsk's Nikita Nesterov to be a spot player for the KHL side the rest of the postseason.

    MHL Playoffs (Russia Jr.):
    CSKA Jr. will start their MHL title defense on Thursday against St. Petersburg Jr. CSKA Jr. finished 2nd in the MHL Central Division while Sr. Petersburg Jr. finished 3rd in the MHL Northwest Division. We'll see if sniper Nikita Kucherov appears after missing much of the last month of hockey.

    Riku Helenius and JYP dominated the league's top team, KalPa, 3-0, to move themselves within an eyelash of clinching a first round playoff bye. Helenius posted his 7th shutout of the season and was named third star of the game. He is now second in the league in save percentage, first in GAA, and first in shutouts. His shutout mark is particularly impressive given he was in a tandem starter situation for much of the first half of the season. With 2 games remaining in the regular season, JYP's magic number is 1 point: 1 point gained or 1 point lost by 7th place Karpat, to clinch the opening round bye. They face Jokerit next on Tuesday.

    KHL Playoff (Russia):
    It's been all chalk so far in the KHL playoffs as all higher seeds have won in the Quarterfinal round, thus far. Novgorod knocked off Dynamo Riga 2-0 today in Game Seven to finalize the combatants in the Semis in the West. In the East, Magnitogorsk and Astana go in Game Seven tomorrow, after which we'll know who top seed Chelyabinsk will face in the Semis.

    MHL (Russia Jr.):
    Chelyabinsk Jr. 1 @ Novokuznetsk Jr. 5
    Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk Jr., 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 5 SOG
    Regular Season totals (MHL): 41 GP, 11-20-31, +11, 66 PIM
    Regular season totals (KHL): 10 GP, 0-0-0, +8, 4 PIM
    Playoff totals (KHL): 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    While the big club awaits for a Semifinal opponent, Nikita Nesterov was back with the junior team today in its 5-1 loss to Novokuznetsk Jr. He took a minor for slashing in the contest. The game was Chelyabinsk Jr.'s final contest of the regular season. The team did not qualify for the playoffs out of the Ural-Siberia Division, finishing 6th of 8 teams. Expect Nesterov to be a Black Ace and spot starter for the KHL side for the remainder of their playoff run.

    KHK MVD Jr. 4 @ CSKA Jr. 5 (OT)
    Nikita Kucherov, CSKA Jr., DNP
    Regular Season totals (MHL): 23 GP, 24-19-43, +16, 40 PIM
    Regular Season totals (KHL): 18 GP, 1-3-4, -1, 4 PIM

    In the "just not fair" department, CSKA, which was eliminated from the KHL postseason, sent former Blue Jackets first rounder Nikita Filatov down to the MHL today. All he did was post 1-2-3 to lead CSKA Jr. to a 5-4 OT win over KHK MVD Jr. Nikita Kucherov did not appear in the match. CSKA Jr. has qualified for the postseason, finishing 2nd in the Central Division, and will have the opportunity to defend their MHL title in the playoffs. One would think if they're allowed to play Filatov, they might have a really good chance to do just that.

    Ex-Lightning forward Eric Perrin's goal with 2:56 left in regulation broke a 3-3 tie and lifted JYP to a key 4-3 win over Lukko. The goal capped a hat trick for Perrin, who was named second star of the game.

    Ex-NHLer Nikolai Zherdev's goal with 5:00 left in regulation capped a 2 goal third period comeback and lifted Mytischi to a 2-1 Game Six win over Cherepovets. Severstal was eliminated from the playoffs in the defeat. Ex-Lightning first rounder Nikita Alexeev had Cherepovets' only goal.

    St. Petersburg, Dynamo Moscow, and Mytischi are through to the Semifinals in the West. Novgorod and Riga go on Saturday in a Game Seven matchup to determine who else makes it to the next round.

    SM-Slutspel (Sweden):
    Lulea's opening round series with AIK will begin on Saturday in Lulea. Due to a peculiarity in the Elitserien playoff format, Johan Harju and top seed Lulea get the 7th seed, AIK, instead of the 8th seed, MODO.
