SKA's fifth goal against Lada was the team's 200th this season. It has taken SKA 48 matches to reach this landmark, a new Russian championship and KHL record. The previous best was also set by our club.
For the fourth time in the past ten KHL campaigns, SKA have scored 200 goals in the regular season. The previous occasions came in the 2011/2012, 2014/2015 and 2016/2017 seasons.
Mikko Koskinen is the third goalkeeper in history to win 100 matches with SKA. The other two are Stanislav Litovko and Maxim Sokolov. Mikko's 100 wins have come in 164 matches.
In the KHL, these following goaltenders have also won 100 games with their respective clubs: Vasily Koshechkin (Metallurg Magnitogorsk), Alexander Yeryomenko (Dynamo Moscow), Karri Ramo (Avangard Omsk), Emil Garipov (Ak Bars) and Michael Garnett (Traktor Chelyabinsk).
Ilya Kovalchuk boasts 200 assists in 346 SKA appearances. He is also only the second SKA player to score 30 goals in two consecutive Russian championship regular seasons.
Scoring just nine seconds into the third period, Ilya Kovalchuk set a new SKA record for time required to score in the third frame in a regular season away match. However, he did the same during the 2017 KHL Gagarin Cup final against Metallurg in Magnitogorsk (5:3, 16 April 2017).
In 191 SKA games, Patrick Thoresen owns 100 assists. He's the fifth SKA player to achieve this.
The only KHL clubs which Patrick hasn't scored against are Lev Prague and HC Sochi.
Pavel Datsyuk made it 100 KHL regular season points (103 - 31+72), before earning his 50th SKA assist in 82 matches.
