Season totals: 20 GP, 7-11, 2 SO, 2.15 GAA, .920 sv%

Is Johan Harju finally coming out of his first quarter slump? Between today's helper and a goal against Khabarovsk, Harju now has points in two of his last three matches. Harju played 14:43 today and was 50% on draws. Mattias Weinhandl continued his torrid goal scoring pace with his 12th and 13th of the season in the game for Dynamo Moscow.

A scoring change awarded Harju his second goal of the season in Dynamo's last game against Khabarovsk, breaking Harju out of a slump, but he was again scoreless today against Novokuznetsk.
