Defending champion Metallurg Magnitogorsk picked up another win to stay out in front in the Eastern Conference – but the return of Sergei Mozyakin after injury was even greater cause for celebration.
Mozyakin, the KHL’s all-time record scorer, had been absent since he picked up an injury at Dynamo Moscow on September 17, but it didn’t take him long to get back to business in a 4-1 win at Avtomobilist.
The forward claimed an assist on Danis Zaripov’s opener in the fifth minute before scoring off his colleague’s pass in the 16th.
Mozyakin had a further assist as Vladislav Kamenev made it 4-0 in the second, serving notice to defenses that he is well and truly back in the game.
