Former Lightning prospect Karri Ramo stopped 27 shots in Omsk's 4-3 win over Spartak Moscow. Who was in the other crease? Hockey legend Dominik Hasek allowed 4 goals on 32 shots for the loss.
Mytischi fell 1-0 in a shootout to Novgorod, with the winning marker belonging to ex-Springfield Falcon Ryan Vesce.
