In the 39th minute of Sunday’s game in Novokuznetsk between Metallurg and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, home forward Sergei Sentyurin earned a major penalty (5 minutes) for fisticuffs after a brawl with visiting forward Evgeny Grachyov. As this was Sentyurin’s second such offense of the current season, following his 5-minute penalty for fighting in September’s game at Avtomobilist, he receives an automatic one-game suspension.
