    SM-liiga (Finland):
    HPK 1 @ JYP 2
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 23/24, 1.00 GAA, .958 sv%
    Season totals: 21 GP, 15-6-0, 6 SO, 1.48 GAA, .937 sv%

    With Riku Helenius getting both ends of the back-to-back, it's fair to say he's moved past Joni Myllykoski and is now the clear #1 for JYP. He stopped 23 today in the club's 2-1 win over HPK and was named second star in the match. We may need to start the official campaign to bring Helenius back to North America on Bolt Prospects the way things are going. JYP has climbed into the top-6 in the SM-liiga and now faces Karpat on Tuesday.

    KHL (Russia):
    Cherepovets 4 @ Novokuznetsk 3 (SO)

    Vasily Koshechkin stopped 2 of 3 shooters in the shootout session as Cherepovets defeated Novokuznetsk 4-3. As a reminder, Bolt Prospects tracks goaltender wins and losses according to North American scoring standards, so while Koshechkin doesn't get credit with a clean win by KHL statistics, he gets one in ours. Cherepovets faces Amur next on Monday.
