SKA have earned seven consecutive KHL Gagarin Cup playoff wins for the first time. The previous record was six set in 2013 and 2015.
Boasting 23 points (5+18), Anton Belov has become SKA's top scoring defenseman in the KHL playoffs. He has beaten Kevin Dallman's best of 22 (6+16). Ten of Anton's assists have come in these playoffs alone.
Ilya Kovalchuk has competed in 293 SKA KHL matches. Only Maxim Chudinov (305) and Tony Martensson (333) have made more SKA appearances.
All of Alexander Barabanov's three career KHL playoff goals have been scored against Lokomotiv in Yaroslavl.
Overall, Alexander has found the net against Lokomotiv on five occasions. Those two regular season goals were also scored away. He needs one more to match Vadim Shipachyov's record of six in games with Lokomotiv.
Alexander Barabanov is only the third SKA player to score an overtime winning goal in both the KHL regular season and playoffs in one season. Artemiy Panarin and Evgeny Dadonov did the same during the 2014/2015 campaign.
In his 59th SKA playoff game, Mikko Koskinen conceded his 100th goal.
