Duelling hat-tricks

8 December 2011, 23:00

Vladimir Tarasenko and Brandon Bochenski both hit hat-tracks as Sibir met Barys - but it was Tarasenko who ended on a high with an overtime winner for the hosts. His decisive goal came on 63:36, with help from Jori Lehtera and Jonas Enlund, both of whom supplied hat-tricks of assists in Sibi’s 4-3 success.

Kvapil gives Dynamo a narrow victory
A dramatic late equalizer after a frantic final period could not quite earn lowly Vityaz Chekhov a win at Dynamo Moscow. The hosts prevailed on 3-2 shoot-out thanks to Marek Kvapil - and three saves from Alexander Yeryomenko. It seemed that Dynamo was heading for victory after Jakub Klepis made it 2-1 on 42:28. That advantage endured amid controversy in the 56th minute when Alexander Fedoseyev thought he had equalized during a 5-on-3 powerplay. The video official, however, had other ideas, ruling that the goal was off its moorings. Undaunted, Vityaz continued to press and finally got its reward on 59:07 thanks to young Mikhail Anisin.

Torpedo leaves it late
Two quick goals in the closing stages gave Torpedo a 3-2 comeback win over Severstal in Nizhny Novgorod. It was starting to look like Alexei Tsvetkov’s second-period strike would be enough to hand the visitors victory, but Juuso Hietanen and Evgeny Varlamov scored in quick successive as Severstal ran into penalty trouble just after the 50 minute mark.
