Koshechkin Does It Again

The legend continues to grow. Vasily Koshechkin pitched his seventh shutout in his last eleven starts today defeating Novokuznetsk 2-0. Koshechkin improved his record to 8-3-1 on the season. This shutout was in many ways more impressive than his previous six because Koshechkin now plays behind a gutted Lada team that dumped 3/4 of its payroll at the November trade period. For the Lokomotiv, Anton But scored his 8th goal of the season as Yaroslavl pummelled Chekhov 8-1. Dimitry Kazionov went scoreless in his first game for Moscow Dynamo as they defeated Molot Perm 2-0.
