At the age of 19 years, nine months and 17 days, Vasily Podkolzin also became the youngest SKA player to score in overtime in the Gagarin Cup playoffs, beating the previous record which was set by Alexander Barabanov (22 years, nine months, 10 days) on 27 March 2017 against Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. Furthermore, the teenage forward is the 40th player to score for SKA in overtime in the KHL.

This match also marked the first time when Podkolzin scored two senior SKA goals in one game.

For the first time in club history, SKA have earned four victories in overtime during one Gagarin Cup playoffs campaign. SKA had tallied three wins in extra time in the post-season in 2011, 2015, 2017 and 2019.
