Dynamo Moscow defeated Salavat Yulaev in the 100th game at VTB Arena.

In this game forward Bogdan Yakimov made his KHL debut for Dynamo, defenseman Slava Voynov wasn’t in the lineup.

In the first period, the game was quite slow with a minimum of scoring chances from both sides. Even Dynamo had a more realistic opportunity however Salavat capitalized on our own power play when Viktor Tikhonov flew away to Ivan Bocharov.

At the first shift of the second stint, Dmitry Rashevsky made the game even. Later our team started to control the game, and on the powerplay, Vadim Shipachyov and Oscar Lindberg fed up Andrei Sergeyev with a great pass where you need just to shoot and score.

Later in the game, Salavat started to push even harder, at the final breath of the game Vadim Shipachyov sent an empty-netter to clinch a win.
