The second goal, which was scored by forward Malte Stromwall in the early stages of the second period, marked SKA's 250th marker in 85 home matches of the KHL Gagarin Cup playoffs. Interestingly, 49 of them have been tallied against CSKA Moscow.
The only goal which CSKA scored was the 900th which SKA have conceded in 458 KHL matches in Saint Petersburg. Dynamo Moscow (85) and CSKA (83) have tallied the largest amount of goals against SKA at the Ice Palace in league history.
Goalkeeper Magnus Hellberg conceded his 150th goal in 101 competitive appearances for SKA in the KHL, a new club record. The previous record was held by Igor Shestyorkin, who let in 150 goals in 97 games.
Moreover, SKA defeated CSKA for the first time in 10 matches with Hellberg between the pipes. Magnus is only yet to defeat Avangard Omsk, Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk and Salavat Yulaev Ufa in the KHL.
In 50 matches for SKA, defenseman Oscar Fantenberg has dished out nine assists. It's worth that Oscar boasts the best plus/minus rating among SKA players this KHL season (+24).
For the first time in the KHL, 19-year-old forward Vasily Podkolzin tallied three (1+2) points in one single match.
This was the maiden occasion when Malte Stromwall scored a goal in the Gagarin Cup playoffs. The Swede now possesses 10 winning goals in the KHL.
CSKA forward Maxim Shalunov became the first player to score in four consecutive KHL playoff games against SKA. Shalunov is also the 10th league player to hit the jackpot against SKA a minimum of 10 times.
CSKA goalkeeper Lars Johansson lost against SKA for the first time when playing the full match. It took him nine games to concede a defeat to our team.
