Koshechkin Throws Fourth Shutout in Six Games

It's beginning to reach the point of being ridiculous. For the fourth time in his last six starts Vasily Koshechkin pitched a shutout today defeating Chekhov 1-0. The victory moves Koshechkin to 5-1 since assuming the starting job in Togliatti. In those six starts, Koshechkin has only allowed 5 goals. Koshechkin now leads the Russian Superleague in both save percentage and GAA. In addition, Albert Vishnyakov made a speedy recovery from his automobile accident, scoring a goal in today's 4-1 Dynamo victory over Novosibirsk. Finally, Nikita Alexeev returned to the lineup today for Omsk and scored a goal in Avangard's 3-2 victory over CSKA.

Game Night 10/26: Lightning at Devils

Hard to believe the Lightning actually trailed in this game early in the third. TB-6 NJ-3 Tarnasky and Artyukhin were effective in limited ice time. Artyukhin with his first NHL point assisting on Andreychuk's game winning goal. Paul Ranger returned with 13:57 of ice time, 1 takeaway, 3 giveaways, 2 blocked shots and a -1 rating. I thought he struggled a bit at times. It might be considered natural that he wasn't as aggressive as usual given what he's been through. Artyukhin and Tarnasky each got a shade under 5 and a half minutes of ice time, both +1, and Evgeny landed 2 hits on the game.
