In the away game at CSKA Moscow Dinamo Riga slipped with the 1-6 again in a debacle.
Dinamo Riga is not easy to play. After the 0-7 home debacle against Omsk, today was not less than the current Gagarin Cup winner, CSKA Moscow the opponent. CSKA was starting from a high speed and achieved very quickly by Vey the 1-0 (5.). Dinamo surprisingly kept the game open for a long time, but CSKA had better chances. Riga’s goalie Makarov, who preferred Salak, was able to distinguish himself several times. Shortly before the break Riga scored by Meija the 1-1 (18.). However CSKA came a little later to a power play and also for more than a minute to a 5-vs-3 personnel excess.
Dinamo survived this delicate phase after the break. But it was again Vey, who brings the Gagarin Cup winner with the 2-1 (25.). Riga also came to a power play, but left this unused. In the middle of the period, McMillan (holding) and Goalie Makarov (delay of the game) were each given a 2-minute penalty, and CSKA had a 5-vs-3 overpower. Shortly before the end of the first penalty Nestorov meets to 3-1 (32.). Then it went fast, the game of CSKA began to run. After just three minutes Kaprizov scored after a solo the 4-1 (35.). Only a minute later Mamin missed a penalty, he fails to Riga goalie Makarov (36.). But CSKA kept pushing and two minutes before half-time, Telegin scored with the 5-1 the final decision in the match (38.).
It followed a rough final period. The start was made by Riga’s Batna who was put on the penalty bench for roughing. But CSKA did not lag behind and both Sekac and Kalinin got a penalty. Riga let this possibility pass to a goal. On the contrary – Marchenko scored with a short-handed goal the 6-1 (48.). Dinamo once again had the opportunity to score in two power plays, but CSKA goalie Johansson did not allow any more goals. With this defeat collected Riga, despite two new goalies, in two games 13 goals. In addition, the contract with the Swede David Ullström was resolved and taken in return the Latvian Oscars Bartulis under contract.
