HC "Salavat Yulaev" extended defeat streak of "Barys" in Ufa
Fans are always excited to watch the matches between Ufa "Salavat Yulaev" and Kazakhstani "Barys". The team from Nur-Sultan arrived in Ufa after three offensive defeats, and Salavat Yulaev won a shoot-out victory over Spartak the day before at home.
Barys scored the first goal in the 9th minute. Roman Starchenko performed the accurate throw. However, the teams left for the first break with an equal score. Hartikainen broke the three-match scoring silence — 1: 1. In the starting segment, Salavat Yulaev again had problems with discipline. The hosts played shorthanded for six minutes out of twenty.
Ufa-Arena watched the outstanding performance of Alexander Kadeikin in the second period. First, the forward literally scratched out the opponent's puck, dragged it into Barys's area, and made a pass to Kugryshev, who did not miss. Then the forward himself scored a goal assisted by the foreign players on the power-play.
It became difficult to resist the Salavat Yulaev, who gained momentum. As a result — the missed fourth goal scored by Mikhail Vorobyov — 4: 1.
Five minutes before the final siren, the hockey players from Nur-Sultan seemed to be quite confused. The fourth defeat of the guests and the second victory of the Salavat Yulaev at home.
It is worth noting that in this match, the Ufa team has a 100% power-play success rate and not a single conceded goal shorthanded. According to the coach of the green squad, this is the merit of Juha Metsola and the work of other players during their training sessions.
HC Salavat Yulaev will play the next match on home ice against Neftekhimik on November 25.
