The Yaroslav Lokomotive are in the final series of the KHL playoffs and lead their opponent, Ak Bars, 3-2 in the series. They are now only one win away from winning the tournament, and play game 6 of the series tomorrow! Finally, Marcus Nilson and his fellow teammates may only be one game away from achieving their life long dream of winning the Gagarin Cup! Remember, you can follow the action at the official website, http://22.214.171.124/translate_c?hl=en&ie=UTF8&sl=ru&tl=en&u=http://www.khl.ru/&usg=ALkJrhhkGqZaS5sX8v-tREqIjoQNHtmgpg in what is sure to be the greatest game of hockey since the day Josef Stalin invented ice and sports!
So, what has been the key to the Lokomotiv's success? Why Marcus Nilson of course! He now has a remarkable 4 points in 13 games and is leading all KHL players who are not named Alexei, Alexander, or Sergei.* Hopefully he will be able to lead his team to victory again tomorrow.
*Note: there may not be any other players in the KHL who are not named Alexei, Alexander, or Sergei
