Minsk edges Dinamo derby

2 December 2011, 23:00

Dinamo Minsk edged out its Moscow namesake 2-1 in a lively encounter in Belarus. The visitors made the worst possible start, losing two players to hooking penalties on 1:44 and duly conceding a goal while shorthanded. Daniel Corso finally made numbers count on 3:36, just as Dynamo Moscow could see the end of the spell of pressure. The Russian team equalized through Denis Mosalyov on a powerplay of its own on 15:28 and both sides traded scoring chances thereafter. A goalless second period was enlivened by a spate of penalties on 36 minutes, and the hosts’ Andrei Stas failed with a penalty shot on 22:59. In a feisty encounter it was perhaps surprising that Minsk’s winner came when both sides were at full strength. Teemu Laine got the crucial goal on 43:37.

Barys blast for Avtomobilist
Kamil Kreps (3+1) and Kevin Dallman (0+4) were the key men as Barys Astana overwhelmed Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg 8-1 in Kazakhstan. Dustin Boyd also scored twice in a convincing win for the hosts; Denis Osipov got Avto’s only goal during a 5 vs 3 powerplay in the closing minutes.

Metallurg wins Siberian struggle
Metallurg Novokuznetsk won the battle of the Eastern Conference strugglers, beating Sibir Novosibirsk 2-1. Alexei Kosourov converted the first powerplay of the game to put Metallurg ahead on 3:39 and Alexander Mereskin doubled the lead early in the second period. Youngster Vladimir Tarasenko pulled one back shortly after halfway, but Sibir couldn’t get another goal.
