Riga enjoys an open-air hockey festival
The Winter Ice Break came back to Riga – and once again the Dinamo derby against Minsk took place in the open air in front of an enthusiastic crowd. This time, a home victory kept the bulk of the crowd happy and ensured that the Western Conference playoff race remains as intense as ever: Riga remains just two points outside the top eight; three points separate three teams with three games to play.
“It will be amazing!” Riga gets ready for the Winter Ice Break
Today, the Latvian capital hosts a KHL regular championship match played in the open air – the second of the season, and indeed, only the second in the League's 10-year history. The game is a contest between the two Dinamos, with Riga welcoming the men from Minsk, and khl.ru is at the venue reporting back on preparations for this historic event.
