    Nikita Nesterov got the call, but played just 1:31 in Chelyabinsk's 5-4 win over Cherepovets.

Out West, 8th seeded CSKA will face top seed St. Petersburg starting Wednesday and 5th seeded Cherepovets will draw 4th seed Mytischi on the same day. In the East, top seed Chelyabinsk draws 8th seed Khanty-Mansiysk in the first round.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Farjestads 1 @ Lulea 4
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, +2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 49 GP, 14-7-21, +6, 16 PIM

    Johan Harju scored the game opening goal in Lulea's 4-1 rout of Farjestads. Somewhat unbelievably, Harju is still tied for 15th in the league in goals despite his putrid second-half production. Niklas Olausson had 1 goal and 2 assists for Lulea in the match. With just 4 games remaining in the regular season, Lulea holds the top spot in the Elitserien and a 5 point lead over 2nd place, which is a 3-way tie between Frolunda, Skelleftea, and Brynas. If the season ended today, the 1/8 matchup would be between Lulea and sub-.500 MODO, which holds a 18-22-11 record. Lulea draws Timra next on Tuesday.

    Nikita Nesterov was -1 with a minor penalty as Chelyabinsk Jr. took a humiliating 5-1 loss at the hands of Stupino. The defenseman has been stuck at 30 points for a few games now. He'll have to wait until Tuesday against Khabarovsk Jr. to see if he can snap out of his slump.

    Season totals (KHL): 21 GP, 21-18-39, +11, 40 PIM
    Season totals (KHL): 18 GP, 1-3-4, -1, 4 PIM

    It hardly seems possible, but Nikita Kucherov was out of the lineup for CSKA Jr.'s punishing 10-1 win over Novosibirsk Jr. I know some young men from Siberia who regret getting off the team bus today. CSKA Jr. gets Novokuznetsk Jr. on Monday.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Djurgardens 1 @ Lulea 2
