Dynamo trailed for most part of the game but managed to grab the second win
After first game coaches did not make big changes in our lineup. Spartak answered right after the start of the game. Our ex-forward Ansel Galimov sent a bullet in our net at the 5th minute. Red-Whites played a little bit better in the first frame.
Dynamo tied the game in the second period when Vadim Shipachyov used a powerplay chance. Unfortunately at the start of the third Patrik Hersley beat Alexander Yeryomenko with powerful slapshot. In the last minutes we got 2-man advantage and used it. Shipachyov found the hole between Julius Hudacek and pipes.
The momentum changed. With 1:08 to play Andre Petersson used a mistake from opposite team to run and score. Last moments of the game were dramatic. Mikhail Grigoryev sent an empty-netter, later Dmitrij Jaskin went to the penalty box and Spartak cut the lead with 6 seconds to play.
Dynamo took a 2-0 lead and heading to their home.
