UFA, 15 January 2020. /Bashinform News Agency/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
Salavat Yulaev hockey players lost two points, having lost to Kazakhstan Barys on the road. The Nur-Sultan club defeated guests from Bashkiria with a score of 5:3.
From the first minute, the net of the Ufa team was defended by Andrey Kareyev. The young goalkeeper of the Salavat Yulaev showed quite good performance. But the coaching staff decided to send Juha Metsola on the ice when the scoreboard showed 3: 1 in favor of Barys. Former Astana residents achieved such success in 26 minutes with the help of the double by Dustin Boyd and Arkady Shestakov. At that time, only Vladislav Kartaev distinguished himself in the Bashkir team, who again returned to the first line.
However, Salavat Yulaev did not give up and managed to equalize. Alexander Kadeikin caught opponents shorthanded, and Vyacheslav Solodukhin later scored his first goal in the current season. Though in a minute, guests from Ufa lost all hope of a positive outcome of the match, having twice missed goals by Shestakov and Okhtamaa — 5: 3.
Salavat Yulaev goes to Yekaterinburg without points, where it will meet with the local Avtomobilist on January 16.
