Yesterday the match of Kontinental Hockey League finished in Ufa. Salavat Yulaev interrupted a series of defeats in five matches. It won  Dynamo (Minsk) 5:2 in a difficult match.

Salavat Yulayev players managed to miss the puck in the power play — Zbynek Irgl scored at the end of the first period — 0-1.

After 31 minutes, Kyril Koltsov hit the net of the visitors — 1:1. But then Alexei Kalyuzhny brought Dynamo ahead during the power play – 2:1.

This score remained till the 49th minute and then Antti Pilstrem evened up scores, Denis Khlystov sent the team of Ufa up — 3:2 , and Teemu Hartikainen and Anton Slepyshev brought the score to smashing — 5:2.

Having outplayed the outsider Salavat Yulaev cheered up a little. But on November 22, the team will have to travel to Minsk to play with Dynamo again.
