Stalnye Lisy blank Kuznetskie Medvedi once again
The only Eastern Conference game of the day was held in Magnitogorsk where Stalnye Lisy faced off against visiting Kuznetskie Medvedi. ‘Steel Foxes’ had risen back to the playoff zone the day before and looked to get some distance between them and Omskie Yastreby. Both goaltenders put on a show in the opening period, which is especially true for Novokuznetsk’s Kirill Kuznetsov, who stopped all 12 shots he had to face over the stretch. The ‘Bears’ clearly learned their lesson after having lost the first game of the back-to-back series but the only defensive mistake they made in the second period led to a goal. Novokuznetsk got with two many players in the offensive zone and left Valentin Zhugin unmarked. He received the puck from Roman Kantserov, skated in on a breakaway and beat him. Ruslan Gospodynko had a chance to improve the lead but Kuznetsov stopped him on a shorthanded counter-attack.
The hosts did score their second goal early in the third stanza. Zhugin got another tally as he squeezed to the slot and slipped the puck between Kuznetsov’s wickets. The visitors took two consecutive penalties after that but Magnitogorsk scored their third goal only in the last minute of regulation – Maxim Kuznetsov got one past his namesake. Stalnye Lisy win 3-0 on home ice and blank Novokuznetsk once again. Ilya Nabokov earned a shutout with 12 saves.
