Jaroslav Janus allowed 2 of 2 shooters to convert, with the 1st being former Lightning pick Dimitry Kazionov, as Bratislava fell 3-2 in the shootout to Novgorod.

Khanty-Mansiysk 1 vs. Jokerit 2 (OT)
Nikita Gusev, Khanty-Mansiysk, DNP
Season totals: 4 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 2 PIM
Nikita Gusev did not dress in Yugra's 2-1 OT loss to Jokerit, which jumped from the league formerly known as the SM-liiga to the KHL this season. Ex-NHLer Niklas Hagman had a goal in the match for Jokerit. Ex-Lightning first rounder Riku Helenius sat backup for Jokerit while ex-Lightning pick Johan Harju was also scoreless for the club.
Chekhov 1 vs. Magnitogorsk 4
Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 15/16, 1.00 GAA, .938 sv%
Season totals: 6 GP, 5-1-0, 1 SO, 1.17 GAA, .953 sv%
If you only put 16 shots on goal on Vasily Koshechkin in a game, you probably wasted the bus ride to the rink. That's all the rubber Koshechkin faced today as Magnitogorsk ran Chekhov out of the building 4-1. Ex-Caps draft pick Oskar Osala had 1 goal and 1 assist in the win for Metallurg.
