18-year-old Ilya Sorokin makes 47 (!) saves in a 3:2 SO loss against Lev Prague.
Novokuznetsk has been at the bottom of the league for most of the season but has shown some life lately. They beat SKA 3:2 and lead the game against Lev 2:0 for more than 50 minutes.
Sorokin has made 22 appearances this season, holds a save percentage of 91.7% and GAA of 2.68. With Niko Hovinen traded to Admiral (where he has been back-up to Evgeny Ivannikov) the goaltending duties now fall to Sorokin and Nikita Lozhkin (born 1991). Sorokin has been the starter for the last four games.
