Points

This post-season run SKA St. Petersburg show great team play. As a result, the team doesn’t have anybody who would stand out in the scoring race. The players don’t pay much attention to their individual statistics as they focus on team result. For instance, one of the top SKA players Ilya Kovalchuk scored just five points in nine contests. However, Kovalchuk’s next point will be his 350th in Russian championships. Sergei Mozyakin, who led the league in regular season scoring, will soon score his 150th point in Russian championship playoffs.
