Getting ready for playoffs
In last game of regular season Spartak defeated Vityaz.

Red-Whites ended regular season in contest against Vityaz. During 2019-20 campaign Spartak led with 2-1 record. For both teams this game did not mean a lot. Spartak won’t move from the 5th spot when Vityaz anyway will face against SKA or CSKA in first round.
Maybe it was the reason why players did not play with much pressure. Vityaz stroke first with redirection from Svyatoslav Grebenshchikov. Later Spartak-93 chemistry showed up when Alexander Khokhlachyov fed up Anton Zlobin with a nice pass. Grebenshchikov restored their lead before game-equalizer from Maxim Goncharov.
In the second period Vityaz played more aggressively however our team missed in two powerplay opportunities. The game was decided in 20 seconds span in the third period. When our forward Kaspars Daugavins scored twice both assisted by Patrik Hersley. Spartak secured the score to the end.
Next game our team will play against Jokerit on March, 1 or against Dynamo Moscow on March, 2. The fourth team of the West would be unveiled only after the games on February, 27.
