The match with Omsk Avangard can well be called a match of principle. Fans remember well the two Gagarin Cup finals between these teams. The teams are off to a fast start now as well. The visitors opened the scoring after Roman Kalinichenko's penalty through the efforts of captain Damir Sharipzyanov - 0:1. Almost immediately, the Army team also got a chance to play on the power play, but missed Reid Boucher's lightning fast attack - 0:2. "Avangard" just started to play in full strength, but Maxim Mamin pulled one goal back - 1:2. The score didn't change again till the halftime. 

The second period did not start well for CSKA. Army conceded the third goal again on the power play. A smashing shot by the ever-present Reid Boucher made it 1:3. A few minutes later, Vladimir Tkachev scored Omsk's fourth goal - 1:4. CSKA did not give up, in particular - Maxim Mamin. The striker made a double and cut the gap - 2:4. Next, Army received two penalties for a number of infringements. The guests were happy to take advantage of such a gift. Ryan Spooner scored Avangard's fifth puck - 2:5.

In the third period, completely open hockey began. Army was getting closer to their opponent, while Avangard was breaking away again. First, Pavel Karnaukhov scored Army third goal - 3:5. But already in the next attack Reid Boucher made a hat-trick - 3:6. Not even a minute later, Darren Dietz scored the fourth puck for CSKA. It seemed like there was an opportunity to make a comeback in the time remaining, but alas. We concede in the shootout.
