The gameday kicked off in Yaroslavl where local Loko faced HK Riga in an uncharacteristically early game. That affected both teams as neither of them engaged in fast-paced hockey in the opening period of play and as a result failed to find the back of the net. Riga converted on their initial man-advantage of the game in the second period – Arvils Bergmanis took a low-shot and the puck ended up behind Vladislav Okoryak with a deflection of Roman Bychkov’s skate. Game officials had to review the play but it counted in the end.

Yaroslavl got back even with Maxim Denezhkin’s marker, who skated to the slot from the area behind the net and stuffed it home. ‘Railway men’ got in the lead six minutes into the third stanza as Daniil Gutik found the back of the net. However, seven minutes later Latvian side levelled it again – Patriks Zabusovs wristed one home. Riga could have ended in overtime but Yaroslavl managed to survive a penalty kill. The visitors went on to take it in the shootout – Kristaps Rokis got the winner.
