CSKA responded quite quickly, a few minutes later CSKA team gained power play and used it. Although formally, the Ak Bars player has already left the penalty box bench during Mikhail Grigorenko's scoring shot. In the last minutes of the period, CSKA strenghtened the attack, and the hosts narrowly avoided the second missed goal.

After the break, the score changed again due to dissmissal. This time, the power play was converted by Ak Bars. Stanislav Galiev definitely hit the to corner. In the second period, the hosts created several more dangerous moments, in one of them the crossbar helped Reideborn.
