Novokuznetsk got the game to 3-2 with a pair of power play goals of their own, but Skorokhodov scored a second goal with ten seconds left in regulation to seal Yugra's win.

Elsewhere:
Former Lightning prospect Karri Ramo stopped 27 shots in Omsk's 4-3 win over Spartak Moscow. Who was in the other crease? Hockey legend Dominik Hasek allowed 4 goals on 32 shots for the loss.

Mytischi fell 1-0 in a shootout to Novgorod, with the winning marker belonging to ex-Springfield Falcon Ryan Vesce. Mytischi was without the services of Lightning prospect Denis Kazionov, who was cut loose by the team earlier this month. No word, as of yet, on where the younger Kazionov brother will land.

Koshechkin to Mytischi?

Russian website championat.ru is reporting a rumor sourced to Sport-Express that goaltender Vasily Koshechkin may possibly play next season for KHL club Mytischi. Koshechkin split last season between Togliatti and Magnitogorsk of the KHL and was reportedly an option to be signed by the Lightning this summer if ex-GM Brian Lawton had remained in Tampa Bay. Mytischi added Lightning prospect Denis Kazionov to its roster earlier this offseason and recently re-signed former Lightning draft pick Alexei Glukhov.
