Alexander Radulov overtook Ilya Kovalchuk at the top of the point-scoring charts after two goals in Vladivostok lifted him to 8+14=22 points for the season.
Radulov’s hot streak stretches to seven games after leading CSKA to a crushing 5-0 win at Admiral, a score that also sees Moscow’s Army Men draw level with their Petersburg comrades SKA. Both teams have 36 points from a possible 39.
Radulov broke the deadlock on the power play in the first minute of the second period and from then on there was little doubt over the outcome. Stephane da Costa quickly extended the lead before Radulov and Jan Mursak took the game away from the host.
Admiral mustered just 16 shots on Stanislav Galimov and rarely threatened even a consolation goal. Igor Volkov marked his return from injury with CSKA’s fifth.
