Severstal held on for a while, but then CSKA scored twice in two and a half minutes. First, Vitaly Abramov pierced Alexander Samonov with a wrist throw — 1:0. And soon Darren Dietz shot powerfully from the blue line — 2-0.
After the break, the game did not change its course. CSKA pressed, earned a double removal, and Nikita Nesterov made the score 3-0 in a captain's way. The guests were able to score one goal with the efforts of Nikita Makeev, but this goal did not change the overall scenario of the match. Soon Anton Slepyshev scored the fourth goal of CSKA and restored the gap of three goals — 4:1. The dissmissal of Nikolai Makarov made adjustments, which Severstal realized thanks to Daniil Vovchenko's goal — 4:2. The period ended with this score.
