The new Dynamo arena became a real our castle for our troops. Unfortunately we were not able to manage the win at this rink. Coaches did not make any changes in our lineup.

Spartak started well and dominated on the first 20 minutes of the game. In the second Dynamo played better and scored from their chance. Our players lost Vadim Shipachyov near the crease and he opened the scoreboard.

In the third period we tied the game however Martins Karsums was cancelled after Dynamo challenge for goalie interference. In few shifts we lost Maxim Afinogenov who made it 2-0. The last minutes could help us to save this game. Patrik Hersley cut their lead in 6-on-3 situation, but later we allowed two empty-netters that decided the game.

The series resume on March, 12 at our rink.
