Jaromir Jagr assisted on Dimitri Pestunov's game winning third period goal to help lift Karri Ramo and Omsk over Astana 2-1. Former Lightning draft pick Ilya Solarev took two minor penalties in the match for Astana. Interestingly, Ramo's numbers are very similar to St. Petersburg goaltender Robert Esche (15-7, 3 SO, 2.04 GAA, .916 sv%), who the Lightning briefly courted for Ramo's vacant backup spot in Tampa Bay before signing Antero Niittymaki.

It was another frustrating night at the rink for Johan Harju, who was -2 in 13:49 with a second period roughing minor to boot. The lone bright spot was that Harju was 80% on draws in the game, bringing him to 58% on the season with 434 faceoffs taken. Former Lightning checking liner Martin Cibak assisted on Spartak's first goal, which was former NHLer Branko Radivojevic's 11th of the year.

Six of Koshechkin's losses this season have come after regulation. Magnitogorsk sits in second in the Eastern Conference, two points behind first place Yulaev. CSKA got Columbus first rounder Nikita Filatov's tenth point of the season, an assist, in the losing effort. Filatov has played just six games for CSKA since being allowed by the Blue Jackets to depart North America for the KHL.
