    It's all square now. Ex-Rangers draft pick Jan Marek had both goals for Magnitogorsk in a 2-1 Game Four win over Ak Bars Kazan. Magnitogorsk was outshot 24-20 in the match, but Magnitogorsk has Koshechkin, who now sports a monsterous .942 playoff save percentage. The other Lightning prospect in the game, Dmitri Kazionov, played 17:13 in the match.

    Tomorrow, the Western Conference series' will be back in action with Game Five contests. With the exception of the Dynamo Riga/KHK MVD series, which Riga trails 3-1, all of the other playoff series are now knotted at 2-2 a piece.

    Wow. Facing the prospect of falling into a 3-0 hole in the series, Vasily Koshechkin pitched a 37 save shutout to help Magnitogorsk pull off a 1-0 overtime victory in Game Three. Petri Kontiola scored off a Stan Chistov assist with just 5 seconds remaining in the first overtime session to seal the deal. Dmitri Kazionov played a scoreless 24:50 in the match for Kazan. Can we please get some of what was in Koshechkin's water bottle for Tokarski for the two big games the Admirals have coming up against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this week?

    Game Four tomorrow.

    (8)Dynamo Riga 4 @ (2)KHK MVD 5 (OT)

    Ex-NHLer and KHL goal scoring champion Marcel Hossa scored a tying goal with less than 1 minute remaining in regulation, but Evgeni Fedorov scored a goal 2:33 into the second overtime to help KHK MVD win 5-4. The win puts Cindarella Riga on the brink of elimination. Lightning prospect Martins Karsums scored a goal early in the 2nd period and took a second period elbowing minor in 23:42 of ice time.

Next up for Sodertalje: Leksands, which was briefly promoted to the Elitserien for the 2005-2006 season, but has been relegated to the Allsvenskan ever since. That match will take place Thursday.

    Magnitogorsk switched to backup Ilya Proskuryakov for Game Two of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series, but the results were the same as Metallurg now finds themselves in a 2-0 series hole. Lightning prospect Dmitri Kazionov opened the scoring for Kazan in the 2nd period and took a hooking minor in 14:45 of ice time. But, it wasn't until less than 2 minutes left in the game when former Penguin Alexei Morozov notched the game winning goal that the outcome was finally decided. The scene now switches to Magnitogorsk for Game Three of the seven game series.

    Tomorrow features Game Three between Riga and KHK MVD with Riga down 2-0 in the series. Elsewhere today, Nizhnekamsk evened up their Eastern Conference Semifinal series 1-1 with Yulaev with a 2-1 overtime win.

    Not a bad start to Sweden's relegation/promotion series for Riku Helenius as he blanked the only other Elitserien level opponent in the series, Rogle, 2-0. Sodertalje won despite being outshot 28-19 in the contest. The club got goals from former Kings prospect Yanick Lehoux and ex-Avs draft pick Linus Videll. On Tuesday, Sodertalje faces Allsvenskan team AIK.

    Vasily Koshechkin was lifted early in the Second Period as Kazan steamrolled Magnitogorsk in Game One of their KHL Eastern Conference Semifinal Series. Former Penguin Alexei Morozov had a natural hat trick in the game for Kazan. Lightning prospect Dmitri Kazionov assisted on Morozov's second goal and played 16:09 in the match and took a minor for hooking.

    Season totals: 12 GP, 4-4-8, +6, 16 PIM
    Playoff totals: 6 GP, 1-1-2, -2, 2 PIM

    Things are looking dire for Karsums and Cindarella Riga. After knocking off top seeded St. Petersburg in the first round, they're finding second seeded KHK MVD to be a much more formidable challenge. Today they were shut out 2-0, meaning Riga has managed just a single goal in the first two games of the Western Conference Semifinal series. Former Lightning draft pick Ruslan Zainullin had a goal in the match for KHK MVD.

    Elsewhere, Yaroslavl and Spartak Moscow are tied 1-1 in their Western Conference Seminfinal series while Yulaev holds a 1-0 lead over Nizhnekamsk in the other Eastern Conference Semifinal series. Tomorrow will feature Game Two in the East between Kazan and Magnitogorsk.

    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 1-1-2, -2, 2 PIM

    Things started well for Karsums and Dynamo Riga in Game One of their Western Conference Semifinal series. The Lightning prospect assisted on a first period goal by Martins Cipulis that put the Cindarella 8 seed up 1-0 at the end of the period. Things slid downhill from there. 2nd seeded KHK MVD scored 4 unanswered goals in the final two frames to stake themselves to a 1-0 series lead. Former Lightning draft pick Ruslan Zainullin had an assist in the match for KHK MVD. Karsums played 15:44 in the match.

    Tomorrow (3-20-10) will be Game Two for Riga and Game One in the Eastern Conference Semifinal series between Dmitri Kazionov and Kazan and Vasily Koshechkin and Magnitogorsk.

    Ekaterinburg's chance for a Cindarella ending came to a screeching hault in an 8-1 series clinching Game Four win by Yulaev. Ex-Predators forward Alexander Radulov had 1 goal and 3 assists in the game for Yulaev. Denis Kazionov played 11:59 in the match, completing his first full season as a regular KHL player.

    Season totals: 51 GP, 5-3-8, -18, 20 PIM

    Not so fast my friends! Despite a pair of goals by former Edmonton prospect Patrick Thoresen, Ekaterinburg upset top seeded Yulaev to extend their opening round playoff series to a Game Four. Denis Kazionov played just 4:08 in the match.

    (7)Chelyabinsk 2 @ (2)Magnitogorsk 1 (OT)

    Pierre Dagenais scored for Chelyabinsk 4 minutes into overtime to help keep his club alive for Game Four against Mangitogorsk. Vasily Koshechkin's playoff save percentage dropped to a still-superhuman .946 in the loss.

    Alexei Morozov had 1 goal and 1 assist to help Kazan complete a 3-game opening round sweep of Astana. Former Lightning prospect Ilya Solarev had an assist on Astana's only goal. Dmitri Kazionov played 17:16 in the match.

    (5)Omsk 1 @ (4)Nizhnekamsk 2

    Playoff totals: 3 GP, 0-3, 0 SO, 3.04 GAA, .886 sv%

    The season is over for Karri Ramo. He and Omsk allowed a goal by Maxim Yakutsenya with 3:33 remaining in regulation to allow Nizhnekamsk to complete the three game sweep. Ex-Lightning forward Eric Perrin had the only goal of the match for Omsk. Let the Ramo signing watch begin.

    Western Conference
    (8)Dynamo Riga 4 @ (1)St. Petersburg 2
    Riga Wins the Series 3-1

    Season totals: 12 GP, 4-4-8, +7, 16 PIM
    Playoff totals: 4 GP, 1-0-1, -1, 2 PIM

    Riga completed its upset of top-seeded St. Petersburg, partly on the strength of a pair of assists by former NHLer Sandis Ozolinsh. Martins Karsums scored an empty-net goal in 19:34 of ice time.

    (6)Spartak Moscow 4 @ (3)Dynamo Moscow 0
    Spartak Wins the Series 3-1
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, DNP
    Season totals: 55 GP, 4-14-18, -10, 38 PIM
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 1-0-1, -2, 8 PIM

    Ex-Lightning forward Martin Cibak had a pair of assists to help secure a Game Four victory for Spartak and an opening round playoff series win. Johan Harju missed his second straight game for Dynamo Moscow. No word on if he is injured. Either way, his season in the KHL is now over, and the Lightning are expected to try to sign Harju this offseason.

    Elsewhere in the KHL, Yaroslavl knocked off Mytischi to win their Western Conference series 3-1. Lightning prospects Dmitri Kazionov and Martins Karsums are already through to the second round. Karri Ramo and Johan Harju are headed home. Only two playoff series remain to be settled, and both are in the Eastern Conference. Denis Kazionov and Ekaterinburg will play Game Four against Yulaev tomorrow with his club down 2-1 in the series. Vasily Koshechkin and Magnitogorsk will also play tomorrow as they try to dispose of Chelyabinsk in Game Four.

    Season totals: 51 GP, 5-3-8, -18, 20 PIM
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 6 PIM

    I'd be amazed if Ekaterinburg isn't swept. Juggernaut top seed Yulaev has gotten 9 goals from 9 different players in the first couple of games of their opening round series to stake themselves to a 2-0 series lead over Ekaterinburg. Denis Kazionov played 10:12 in the match.

    (2)Magnitogorsk 3 @ (7)Chelyabinsk 1
    Magnitogorsk Leads the Series 2-0
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 27/28, 1.01 GAA, .964 sv%

    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 2-0, 0 SO, 1.51 GAA, .954 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin has been a brick wall in each of the first two games of this playoff series, sporting a gaudy .954 sv% thus far.

    (3)Kazan 4 @ (6)Astana 2
    Kazan Leads the Series 2-0
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, -1, 6 PIM, 6 SOG
    Season totals: 52 GP, 18-9-27, +7, 18 PIM
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM

    Kazan looks to be in good shape to make the second round, as they beat Astana 4-2 in Game Two. Former NHLer Niko Kapanen had his 3rd goal of the playoffs for Ak Bars in the match.

    (4)Nizhnekamsk 6 @ (5)Omsk 2
    Nizhnekamsk Leads the Series 2-0
    Karri Ramo, Omsk, Loss, 17/21, 6.09 GAA, .810 sv%
    Season totals: 44 GP, 21-17-4, 4 SO, 2.11 GAA, .913 sv%
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-2, 0 SO, 3.65 GAA, .860 sv%

    Things are looking bad for Omsk. Karri Ramo was pulled in the second period of their 6-2 Game Two loss to Nizhnekamsk, putting the team down 2-0 in the series. Former Lightning first round pick Alex Svitov had a goal and former NHLer Jaromir Jagr had 1 goal and 1 assist in the match for Omsk.

    Tomorrow the Eastern Conference plays round three.

    Regular season totals: 51 GP, 5-3-8, -18, 20 PIM
    Playoff totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, E, 6 PIM

    This probably won't end well for Ekaterinurg. Top seed Yulaev got goals from five different goal scorers as they blew out Ekaterinburg in Game One of their opening round playoff series. Lightning prospect Denis Kazionov played 14:54 in the match and led his team with 6 shots on goal. He also took three aggressive minor penalties for cross checking, charging, and roughing. It's a hat trick of minor penalty nastiness.

    (2)Magnitogorsk 5 @ (7)Chelyabinsk 2
    Magnitogorsk Leads the Series 1-0

    Season totals: 52 GP, 18-9-27, +7, 18 PIM
    Playoff totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM

    Former NHLer Niko Kapanen had a pair of goals for Kazan as they defeated Astana in their opening game of the KHL playoffs. The elder Kazionov played 22:53 in the match for Kazan.

    Playoff totals: 1 GP, 1-0. 0 SO, 2.02 GAA, .909 sv%

    This much I know to be true: if your team can't score a goal for you, you can't win a playoff game as a goaltender.

    Western Conference
    (1)St. Petersburg 1 @ (8)Riga 3
    Riga Leads the Series 2-0
    Martins Karsums, Riga, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 12 GP, 4-4-8, +7, 16 PIM
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    I smell upset. Riga got 1 goal and 2 assists from Martin Kariya to help defeat St. Petersburg 3-1 and stake Riga to a 2-0 lead over the top seed in their opening round playoff series. Martins Karsums played 17:55 in the match.

    (3)Dynamo Moscow 0 @ (6)Spartak Moscow
    Spartak Leads the Series 2-0
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moscow, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 55 GP, 4-14-18, -10, 38 PIM
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 1-0-1, -2, 8 PIM

    Unfortunately, an upset may also be in the offing for Spartak over Dynamo Moscow as well. Former Flyers farm hand Stefan Rucizka assisted on the only goal of the match by Evgeny Lapenkov. Johan Harju played just 10:43 in the match and was 38% on draws.

    Elitserien (Sweden)

    After sitting backup the past two games, Helenius was back in net for Sodertalje, backstopping them to a 3-2 win over MODO. Former NHLer Markus Naslund had 1 goal and 1 assist in the match for MODO. Sodertalje's regular season concludes on Saturday against Farjestads. They sit 11th in the 12 team league and will miss the playoffs.
