The derby began with the massive attack of CSKA. Sergey Plotnikov had a great moment, but the puck missed the target. Until the middle of the period, the advantage in shots on target remained with CSKA. But closer to the equator of the game segment, the residents of St. Petersburg began to seize the initiative. The result of this was Vasily Glotov 's puck — 1:0. The first period ended with this score.
After the break, the spirit of the match was similar. At the very beginning of the period, Andrey Chivilev received a two-minute removal, but CSKA did not use this chance. And the SKA player, coming out of the penalty box, immediately made the score — 2:0 in favor of the hosts. Then one of the key moments of the match happened. Valentin Zykov met Prokhor Poltapov harshly at the side and received a big fine for this violation (5+20). Alas, but it also did not work out. At the end of the second period, Alexander Galchenyuk retired, but even here CSKA forgave the opponent.
In the third period, the hosts competently restrained CSKA attack. CSKA managed to break the shutout only 1 minute and 40 seconds before the end of the third period. Maxim Mamin recorded the puck on his account. It was not possible to even the score in the remaining time. We concede in St. Petersburg.
