Friday's Superleague Playoff Score

So close and yet so far...

Defending champions Ak Bars Kazan saw their repeat title hopes slip through their fingers today as Metallurg Magnitogorsk claimed a narrow 2-1 victory in the deciding Game Five to win the Superleague championship. Dimitri Kazionov, in what may have been his final game in Russia before coming to North America to play in the Lightning organization, was scoreless in the match.

Kazionov finished the playoffs with 2 goals and 4 points in 13 games and 4 penalty minutes and a +1 rating.
