Although he has yet to score a goal this season for Khimik MO, Alexei Glukhov  continues to build his reputation as one of the better young playmakers in Russia. Glukhov assisted on Khimik MO's lone goal today, a 1st period marker by Dimitry Kosmachev, as his club tied Salavat Yulayev 1-1. The assist is Glukhov's 7th of the season.
That would've tied Anton But  for the lead amongst Lightning prospects in Russia, but the left winger assisted on Alexei Vasiliyev's second period talley in a 3-2 loss to Kazan to record his 8th helper of the 2005-2006 campaign.
For Togliatti, Vasily Koshechkin  sat today as goaltender David Svoboda fell 2-1 to Omsk. Dimitry Kazionov did dress today and was held scoreless for Lada.
