In last episode of Moscow derby last season teams decided who will go to postseason, this year they battled just for 5th place of Western conference. Teams started preparation for the main part of the season.

In first frame, Zubov had a great opportunity to open the score at the breakaway. With 18 seconds left in the period Ilya Nikulin scored for Dynamo from the crease. Our players made a crucial amount of mistakes and allowed the opponent to have a 3-0 lead. During the power play Ilya Zubov finally scored for our team, but it was a lonely goal.

We cannot say that our team does not battle that night but it was hard to beat Alexander Yeryomenko when Dynamo players were very accurate and used their chances with a great efficiency. With two weeks remaining in regular season our team should regroup and show their best hockey, especially in postseason.
