The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed two episodes from Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final series between Avangard and Traktor.

In the 15th minute Avangard defenseman Anton Belov collided with Traktor forward Evgeny Kuznetsov and then kicked his opponent, who was lying face down on the ice. The Committee studied the incident and has imposed on Belov a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for kicking.

In the 29th minute, during another collision by the boards, Avangard forward Alexander Nesterov aimed a kick at Traktor forward Maxim Yakutsenya. After scrutinizing this episode the Committee has imposed on Nesterov an identical punishment - a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for kicking.
