Ex-Blue Jackets draft pick Sergei Mozyakin scored 8:43 into Overtime with his second goal of the game to deliver Magnitogorsk the critical 2-1 Game Five win over Praha in their Gagarin Cup Finals. Mozyakin appears to be closing in on being named the playoffs MVP, although his teammate Koshechkin may have something to say about that, while his linemates Danis Zaripov and Jan Kovar each had 2 assists in the game, as well. It should be noted the goaltending of Vasily Koshechkin allowed Magnitogorsk to overcome a 36-25 shot deficit in the game. Ex-Kings pick Justin Azevedo had Praha's only goal.
