We are defeating Lokomotiv in Yaroslavl

The meeting began with the numerical advantage of the hosts — Reideborn got two minutes for delaying the game. Yaroslavl initially controlled the puck, they threw a lot and tried to seize the initiative. But soon Vitaly Abramov drove into the zone and punched Bocharov with an accurate wrist shot. A little later Nikita Nesterov made a great pass to Tahir Mingachev, who scored his first goal of the season. The guests marked the opponents in a foreign zone with great skill — because of this, the Lokomotiv hockey players almost could not quickly switch from defense to attack.

Moscowites calmly controlled the course of the match when the game was shaken up by Ilyenko, who marked his return to the squad with a goal. But almost immediately on the power play, Maxim Sorkin restored CSKA's two-point lead. The Yaroslavl team couldn't come back in the third period, they only managed one goal, which was scored by Aleksandr Polunin. The CSKA team won after two defeats, while the railroad team lost for the second time in a row.
