Given that both netminders have led the Russian Superleague in every statistical category over the past month, maybe it isn't surprising Vasily Koshechkin
and Travis Scott's showdown today in Magnitogorsk ended the way it did. Lada and Metallurg battled to a 0-0 tie as Vasily Koshechkin secured his 5th shutout in his last 8 starts. His record is now 6-2-1 for the season.
Meanwhile, in Omsk, Anton But
snapped out of a slump with a huge third period as he notched 3 helpers as Lokomotiv trounced Avangard 5-1.
