Classic derby between CSKA and Spartak was the only game of the matchday in KHL, so all the hockey fans were watching broadcast from CSKA ARENA. First period was very tough for both teams. Players were fighting for each centimeter of space and didn't forget about hockey itself. There were some good chances to score, but goalkeepers Sharychenkov and Gudacek stopped all shots.
CSKA opened the score in the second period. Maxim Shalunov made a great shot in power play. CSKA scored once more but Sergey Andronov's goal was canceled because of the offside.
Soon Spartak turned the situation around. CSKA was left shorthanded for 5 minutes, and red-white team took advantage scoring twice. Three minutes later Mario Kempe evened the score and made it to the overtime, where Maxim Shalunov scored a gamewinner.
