The most dramatic game of the day was in Moscow, where Dynamo rallied from 0-3 down to beat Lokomotiv in overtime. SKA almost matched that, recovering from 0-2 to win 3-2 at Severstal. Mikhail Varnakov struck twice as Torpedo defeated Jokerit, getting his 200th goal for the club in the process. There was also a double for Corban Knight in Avangard’s 4-2 win over Amur as the Hawks maintain their good form, but Avtomobilist fell to a fourth successive defeat after missing out in overtime at Traktor. There was overtime in Minsk, too, as Dinamo overcame Vityaz, while table-topping CSKA eased to a 4-1 win at Sochi.
