Depleted by the World Cup of Hockey, SKA's offensive juggernaut ground to a near halt in their 2-1 loss to CSKA. The team was without key players like Pavel Datsyuk and Evgeny Dadonov for the match. Lightning prospect Nikita Gusev was scoreless in 13:35 in the match. Ex-NHL'er Ilya Kovalchuk had a helper in defeat.
