Spartak came back home and will spend the rest of regular season in Moscow region playing two home games and two away games against Dynamo Moscow and Vityaz Podolsk. Unfortunately, our team lost forward Robin Hanzl who got an injury and will miss about the month.

If we clinched playoff spot Torpedo is fighting for a chance to play at Gagarin Cup this season. That is why they started with a lot of energy. On 3rd minute Jordan Schroeder’s shot came to our net after unlucky deflection from our defenseman. We got the momentum in the second. And Spartak scored twice but both times the goal was challenged on offside. And both times it went successful for opposite team.

We tied the game shorthanded. Lucky rebound helped us after Maxim Tsyplakov long-shot. In the third frame Yakov Rylov pulled as ahead with a blue line shot. Then we forgot Stanislav Bocharov on our crease and he tied the game. Schroeder’s deflection later in the period helped Torpedo to secure that important win.

Spartak will finish home part of regular season on February, 20 against Ak Bars Kazan.
