Yugra leaves it late

25 January 2012, 22:33

Yugra Khanty-Mansiysk pulled off a dramatic 3-2 win at high-flying Metallurg Magnitogorsk to tighten its grip on a play-off spot. The home side was the hot favorite, but after Sergei Mozyakin fired Metallurg ahead a missed penalty shot from Juhamatti Aaltonen was thwarted by Mikhail Biryukov in the Yugra goal. That miss proved costly as the visitors steadily turned the game around and staged a late smash-and-grab to tie at 2-2 on 55:59 and forge ahead on 58:34. Evgeny Blokhin and Evgeny Fyodorov both finished with 1+1; the latter took the game-winning goal.
