This was much closer to the opening night lineup, so there were fewer prospects in uniform:
Janne Niskala was +1 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 19:23.
Vladimir Mihalik had 1 blocked shot in 16:04.
Steven Stamkos had 1 goal, 1 shot, 3 hits, and was 67% on draws to go with a +1 rating in 14:46.
Alexei Glukhov did not play in Mytischi's 4-3 overtime win over Cherepovets. Glukhov has yet to appear in a game this season.
Albert Vishnyakov was -1 in Novokuznetsk's 3-2 shootout win over Voskresensk.
Vasily Koshechkin did not play in Togliatti's 2-1 shootout loss to Magnitogorsk.
Dimitri Kazionov was scoreless in Kazan's 4-1 loss to Chelyabinsk.
Anton But was -1 in CSKA's 4-3 loss to Riga.
It's nice to see the Lightning generating a lot of offensive pressure without their top guns in the lineup, despite the loss.
Olaf Kolzig allowed 3 goals on 24 shots for the loss.
Pittsburgh 4:54, Tyler Kennedy 1 (power play) (Kris Letang, Alex Goligoski)
Barberio gets two helpers ... Jung watches his replacement drop to 0-2.
