Salavat Yulaev had its first defeat of season against Severstal
The second away tour for the "Salavat Yulaev" hockey club started in Cherepovets. The Ufa team visited Severstal after seven victories in a row and did not expect to receive a slap in the face.
In the first 36 minutes, the rivals did not delight the fans with goals. The hosts opened the score for this match. It was a goal to gloom over in the locker room by Robert Roob.
After the second break, the Cherepovets team was hit by a wave of penalties, one of which was successfully capitalized on by Tema Hartikainen. However, Salavat Yulaev conceded the second goal less than two minutes later, decisive — 1: 2.
Tomi Lamsa tried to rouse his players and replaced Metsola with the extra attacker. The third puck almost flew into the empty net – saved by the bar. It was the first defeat of HC Salavat Yulaev this season.
The Bashkir team will play the next match against the St. Petersburg SKA on September 23.
