Two goals in a minute give CSKA the edge


From the first minutes Neftekhimik players ran forward, loading the gate of Ivan Fedotov. However, most of the shots went past the goal. At the end of the period, CSKA led 11:5 on shots on target, but were inferior in the score. Nail Yakupov's accurate and powerful shot put the guests ahead — 0:1. Until the end of the game, CSKA created a series of dangerous moments, but the guests left for a break as the leaders of the match. 

The goal break happened for the CSKA team at the end of the second period. For a long time the game was equal, but Vladislav Kamenev's puck turned the scenario of the game. The forward of the army men climbed on a nickel and pushed the puck into the guests' goal — 1:1. CSKA's second goal followed almost immediately. 32 seconds after the first goal, Maxim Mamin put the team ahead — 2:1. That was the score the second period ended with. 

In the third period, the guests could not even the score. It is worth noting that there were no penalty minutes in the match until the very end. 28 seconds before the end of the game, Pavel Karnaukhov got the only removal. Fortunately for CSKA fans, the guests did not use this attempt. CSKA won an important home victory, conceding during the meeting.
