In the third round, the team of Ravil Yakubov was to play with Kurganstalmost that only had one point in its hands.
Certain concerns of the coaching staff were related to the fact that after the game with Ice Wolves the team had too little time to recover.
Players of Arctic started yesterday's game highly concentrated but they faced a very motivated rival, and our goalkeeper Ilya Mogilevkin (No. 1) had to save the goal three times after a face-to-face clash. Right after the third excellent save Arctic ran into a counterattack where Nikita Lazarev (No. 49) made a perfect shot right into the corner. The whites felt how disoriented the opponent was and started to hit goals one after the other. In the first game segment, Ilya Kolyagin (No. 31), Dmitry Osokin (No. 44), Nikita Lazarev (No. 49) and Maksim Potoker (No. 48) each scored. In the second period, the team in blue could not convert their opportunities. While in our team Stanislav Trapeznikov (No. 33) and Aleksandr Kostin (No. 13) each scored once turning the final period into a formality. In the third segment, the goal frenzies continued thanks to Ilya Kolyagin (No. 31), Dmitry Gasilin (No. 71), Sergey Egorov (No. 17) and Boris Mogilevkin (No. 18).
