As the action in final series switches to Moscow, the Gagarin Cup must also be in attendance. Following its travels in chauffeur-driven cars in trucks, and on long-distance trains, for Game 3 the trophy chose for its method of transport one of the architectural wonders of the world – the Moscow Metro. Accompanied by its guard of honor, the Cup set off from Petrovsky Park Station at 4:30pm and arrived at one of the new stops on the rapidly-expanding Metro, CSKA, a short distance from the Red-and-Blues' Ice Palace.

To keep the military theme the Gagarin Cup was taken to the Army Men's stadium in a Tiger Armored Car, to the envy of many a rush-hour driver and commuter. Once at the Ice Palace, the Cup was placed on display in the foyer, so that the fans could have their photos taken with the coveted piece of silverware.
