UFA,10 October 2019. /Bashinform News Agency/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
After a shutout defeat from Metallurg (Magnitogorsk), HC Salavat Yulaev had additional motivation to rehabilitate in front of its fans. In the first period, the team of Nikolai Tsulygin did not succeed. Again, the powerplay and errors in the neutral zone failed. The guests from Kazakhstan managed to score the goal first. The Barys team was able to outwit Juha Metsola on the slot — Darren Diez hit the net.
Ufa players managed to fight back in the second period. The Finnish striker Sakari Manninen scored the first goal for the Salavat Yulaev team — 1: 1.
After five minutes of the third period, Vladimir Zharkov received a controversial two-minute penalty for hooking. The Nur-Sultan players quickly capitalized on the advantage. Curtis Wolf scored the goal — 1: 2.
Then Metsola signaled to the coaching staff that he was ready to be replaced by the sixth field player. Salavat Yulaev took a timeout. However, the Ufa team failed to pull off the game. The hosts suffered a second defeat in a row.
Salavat Yulaev will play the next match away. The Bashkir team will be visiting Torpedo in Nizhny Novgorod on October 11.
