Jokerit defenseman Mikko Lehtonen scored twice to lead his team to a 4-1 victory at home to Amur, while Maxim Afinogenov did much the same for Dynamo Moscow against Lokomotiv. On the road, CSKA got a boost with a hard-fought 3-2 win at Traktor, only a second success in seven games for the defending champion. Alexander Protapovich got his first KHL goal to give Dinamo Riga an overtime win at Severstal, but the extras brought little joy for Dinamo Minsk, beaten after blowing a 2-0 lead at home to Admiral. Barys also needed overtime to get past Metallurg, with Linus Videll extending Magnitka’s losing run. Avtomobilist was close to a comeback against Torpedo, but fell just short with the score at 3-4.
