SKA conceded six goals in one period for the first time in KHL history. The previous record was five conceded goals during one particular frame.
Furthermore, this was also the maiden occasion when SKA let in six goals against CSKA Moscow. Previously, CSKA had netted five goals against SKA in three separate games.
For the first time in club history, SKA have conceded eight empty-net goals in one single KHL season. Four were conceded in the regular season and four in the Gagarin Cup playoffs.
Across 14 Gagarin Cup playoff campaigns, SKA have lost eight times after initially leading by a score of 2:0 in a match.
This was the fifth time when the opponents were awarded a penalty shot against SKA in the KHL playoffs. Interestingly, all five of those penalty shots have been saved by SKA goalkeepers, with Lars Johansson following in the footsteps of Jakub Stepanek (twice), Ilya Ezhov and Alexander Salak.
CSKA forward Konstantin Okulov became the fourth KHL player to tally a minimum of 25 (12+13) points against SKA.
Fellow CSKA forward Alexander Popov is in fifth place of the ranking concerning the amount of points registered against SKA in the Russian championship with 33 (10+23) on the board. Only Danis Zaripov (34), Vadim Epanchintsev (39), Alexander Radulov (45) and Sergei Mozyakin (54) have earned more points against SKA than Popov.
