Goals are now proving hard to come by in this series. A late tally in the game’s 49th minute by playoff top scorer Maxim Shalunov ended Avangard’s hopes of gaining an upper hand and means that the team from Omsk has now lost four home games in a row.

That doesn’t bode well for tonight’s Game 4 tilt back in Balashikha.

Can Avangard get back on track at home or will the team have to hit the road with its back against the proverbial wall?
