Admiral Vladivostok 3 Kunlun Red Star 2 (1-0, 0-2, 2-0)

The final game before the international break saw Admiral come from behind to collect a fourth successive win. That matches the Sailors’ best ever sequence in KHL action and means the team from the Far East is still in with a chance of making the playoffs.

Admiral went ahead midway through the first period when Alexander Ugolnikov fired a powerful shot past Alexander Lazushin. However, the middle frame very much belonged to the visitor. Admiral’s defense, which had enjoyed two shut-outs in its previous games, finally yielded after 150 minutes without a goal when Veli-Matti Savinainen tied the game with a short-handed effort. Then Justin Fontaine’s one-timer brought a power play goal and a 2-1 lead for Red Star.

It wasn’t enough for Kunlun, though. The Chinese team is also chasing a playoff spot but could not hold on to secure a valuable win. It took just eight seconds on the power play for Yury Petrov to tie the game in the third period and a last-minute effort from Alexander Konnov sealed the win.
