Forward Ivan Morozov scored SKA's 150th goal against Vityaz Podolsk in 34 KHL matches between the two clubs. This is the quickest amount of time SKA have required to score 150 goals against one particular opponent in the league.
This was only the fourth occasion in 13 KHL seasons when SKA scored four powerplay goals in one away game, with four different players (Lukas Bengtsson, Igor Ozhiganov, Vasily Tokranov, Joonas Kemppainen) hitting the jackpot on the man advantage at the Vityaz Ice Palace.
For the first time in Russian history, four SKA defensemen (Lukas Bengtsson, Igor Ozhiganov, Danila Galenyuk, Vasily Tokranov) all scored a goal each in one domestic championship match. The previous record was three. Furthermore, this was the fourth match when four SKA goals were registered by defensemen. Vasily Tokranov has tallied at least one marker in the last three of those four games.
The last time when four separate SKA defensemen netted goals in one match was on 23 November 1991 in a USSR First League game against Sokol Novocheboksarsk, a meeting which our team won 6:5. The goals were scored by Sergei Zhukov (twice), Dmitry Kukushkin, Alexander Sivov and Vladimir Aleksushin.
Igor Ozhiganov now has 100 KHL assists to his name from 499 matches. 22 of those assists have been gained in 58 SKA appearances. Moreover, by tallying one goal and two assists in Podolsk, he matched his own personal best in terms of points in one competitive game.
Forward Maxim Groshev made his SKA debut, while fellow 18-year-old forward Marat Khusnutdinov registered his maiden KHL point as he dished out an assist for our seventh goal.
All of Lukas Bengtsson's three goals in the current campaign against Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, HC Sochi and Vityaz have turned out to be the game winners. It's also worth noting that he scored the winner against Vityaz in the fourth match of the 2020/2021 Gagarin Cup playoffs first round series.
