Six regular season games took place in Parimatch Junior Hockey League regular season. We take a look at key action in this daily review on JHL official website.
Spartak lose to Taifun on home ice
First game of the back-to-back series, which was held in Moscow, didn’t go the way most expected. JHC Spartak played hosts to Taifun Primorie Region and got off to a decent start. The red-and-white established a 2-0 lead by the 12th minute as Matvei Kokovin and Nikita Borodayenko had a marker each. However, something went wrong for Spartak after that as their offense simply stopped clicking. Things were exactly the opposite for Primorie Region as they began capitalizing on their scoring chances. Ivan Khrunin cut into the lead before the period expired and went on to score his second of the game in the following stanza. Prior to that Yan Kopylov and Pavel Yelizarov picked up a marker each.
The red-and-white swapped their goaltenders – Platon Zadorozhny replaced Dmitry Kulikov. The former didn’t allow a single goal but it didn’t matter much. In the final minute of the game Khrunin scored on the empty net to seal the deal and complete his hat-trick. Home team managed to squeeze in a goal by Bogdan Lvutin prior to that.
