KHL Game Day: 11-20-11
Chekhov 1 @ Cherepovets 3
Vasily Koshechkin, DNP
Season totals: 17 GP, 8-7-0, 1 SO, 2.86 GAA, .912 sv%
Koshechkin temporarily unseated as Cherepovets' starter? Veteran Vadim Tarasov made his second straight start and upped his save percentage to a .944 mark in Cherepovets' 3-1 win over Chekhov. Chekhov is coached by ex-Lightning forward Andrei Nazarov, who infamously tried to attack Dynamo Moscow fans behind the Chekhov bench with a stick earlier this season. Fellow ex-Lightning forward Nick Tarnasky was scoreless in the match for Chekhov, as well. Cherepovets plays Spartak Moscow on Tuesday.
MHL (Russia Jr.)
Chelyabinsk Jr. 5 @ Mytischi Jr. 3
Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk Jr., 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 23 GP, 6-9-15, +12, 20 PIM
Jet lag was not a problem for Nikita Nesterov, as he assisted on a second period goal in Chelyabinsk Jr.'s 5-3 win over Mytischi Jr. in his first game back from the Subway Super Series. He also had a minor for interference in the match. The Polar Bears are off until Friday when they face St. Petersburg Jr.
