Nikita Gusev had a garbage time power play goal, a game-opening power play assist, and an even strength assist sandwiched in between in SKA's 4-0 blanking of Nizhnekamsk. Gusev played 17:50 in the match and had a game high 7 shots on goal. The 3 point effort sets a new career high in points for Gusev at 51 through 38 games, which surpasses his total of 49 points in 56 games last year. He moves back to third in the KHL in scoring behind only Sergei Mozyakin of Magnitogorsk and his teammate and former NHL'er Ilya Kovalchuk. Ex-Isles pick Mikko Koskinen turned aside all 30 shots he faced for SKA for the shutout victory.
