UFA, 18 October 2017. /Bashinform News Agency, Gulfiya Akulova/.
Yesterday, HC Salavat Yulaev held his final match in the Western away series — they played in Moscow against HC Dynamo.
The first period was more successful for the home team — Salavat Yulaev missed the goal in the 14th minute by Sakari Salminen.
But the second period was won by our team. In the 27th minute of the game Gleb Kuzmin scored his first goal in the league. In the 33rd minute Denis Kokarev interrupted his goalless series. Ben Scrivens passed the puck to Zakhar Arzamastsev, and the latter to Kokarev. At the beginning of the third period, the Moscow team equalized the score by the efforts of Dustin Boyd.
In the middle of the third period Dynamo was forced to replace the goalkeeper – the defender Andrei Kuteykin flew at speed to his own goalie. Ivan Bocharov rose from the ice only with the help of his partners and was replaced by Alexander Eremenko.
In 47.6 seconds before the end of the match, the fourth three staged a decisive attack on the gates of Dynamo and Yevgeny Korotkov scored the goal. The game score was 2: 3 in favor of Ufa players.
On October 20 HC Salavat Yulaev will have a home match against Avtomobilist.
