You explain it to me.

Kazan 6 @ St. Petersburg 5 (SO)
Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 16 GP, 1-1-2, +1, 12 PIM
Evidently, the majority of the KHL forgot how to play defense over the Karjala break. Dmitri Kazionov was scoreless in 14:28 in Kazan's 6-5 shootout win over SKA St. Petersburg. Kazionov did score the winning goal in the shootout session for Ak Bars, as well. Ex-Stars second rounder Johan Fransson (Johan Fransson Lite) had 1 goal and 3 points in the loss for SKA. Ex-Lightning prospect Anton But was St. Petersburg's only unsuccessful shooter in the three round shootout.
