Steve Moses scored twice to help Jokerit to a 4-3 win at Metallurg Magnitogorsk.
The game was tied at 2-2 when Moses got his first, leading a counter attack and picking his spot as Evgeny Biryukov backed off. Then, with the scores at 3-3, Moses struck again early in the third, scoring with a back-hander after another solo surge.
Earlier Moses had been the architect as Jokerit opened up a 2-0 lead with a pair of power play goals in the first period. His pass picked out Linus Omark to open the scoring in the sixth minute and he also fed Ville Lajunen for the Finns’ second.
But Magnitka hit back in the second with Jan Kovar scoring on a screened Henrik Karlsson before Oskar Osala tied it up. Chris Lee also found the net, again on the power play, with a powerful effort to make it 3-3 but it was Moses who would have the final word.
