Yesterday's game four win was SKA's 58th victory this season and the 27th on the road. Both of those figures have beaten the records of 56 and 26 set in the 2014/2015 campaign.

SKA have won six consecutive KHL Gagarin Cup playoff away matches for the first time.

Anton Belov scored SKA's 50th goal in these KHL playoffs. 14 more are required to match the record of 64 from 2015.

Fellow defenseman Dinar Khafizullin netted the club's 11th powerplay goal away from home in these playoffs.

Lokomotiv's shorthanded goal was the first that SKA conceded this season on the powerplay.

Vadim Shipachyov boasts 52 SKA playoff points (17+35), beating Patick Thoresen's previous best of 51 (19+32).

In these four games against Lokomotiv, Vadim picked up six assists. No SKA player had ever earned so many assists in just four matches.

Evgeny Dadonov now has 201 SKA points (95+106) from 215 appearances. Only Ilya Kovalchuk has reached the 200 point landmark in a shorter amount of time (208 games).

43 (23+20) of Evgeny Dadonov's points have come in 50 SKA playoff games.

Viktor Tikhonov competed in his 350th Russian championship match. So far, Viktor owns 182 points (99+83). 154 (78+76) of them have been taken in 270 SKA matches.

Igor Shestyorkin kept Lokomotiv out for 86:01 before eventually conceding a goal. However, the overall SKA record belongs to Ivan Kasutin, who didn't let in a goal for 118 minutes and 59 seconds.

Before missing game four, Mikko Koskinen had played in 59 consecutive KHL playoff matches. 10 had been for Sibir Novosibirsk, with the remaining 49 being with SKA. Ex HC MVD, Dynamo Moscow and Traktor netminder Michael Garnett competed in 77 playoff games in a row. Incidentally, he was also coached by Oleg Znarok while playing for MVD and Dynamo Moscow.

Oleg Znarok is the first coach in KHL history to take his teams to four Gagarin Cup finals. He did the same in 2010, 2012 and 2013.

For the first time in a series between SKA and Lokomotiv, the team which won the opening game qualified for the next round.
