All-Star break helped our team to get some energy. However, we are having a tough schedule to the end of regular season. That is why defensemen Patrik Hersley, Yakov Rylov and Evgeny Kulik stayed at home.

Anyway, we cannot expect easy game even Dinamo did not have too much motivation in last games of the season. Like nine days ago Dinamo started well and opened the scoreboard on the fifth minute of the play. Then our team showed some improvements in powerplay situations. Ilya Zubov sniped and made it 1-1.

At the 18th second of the second frame Robin Hanzl gave us a lead. Later Shane Prince tied at powerplay, Evgeny Dadonov restored Dinamo’s lead and Alexander Kitarov score shorthanded goal. Last game became crucial in the whole contest. With 7:06 to play Kaspars Daugavins scored another our powerplay goal but it was not enough to get any points that night. In last seconds we tried hard however Dinamo played well.
