The derby gathered a full house at the VTB Arena – 10,203 spectators
A month and a half before the start of the playoffs, Dynamo showed how they would fight in the cup games. They put pressure on, leveled the score in the third half, were able to win after extra time, but they did so in a penalty shootout.
And in CSKA there were “tourists” – those who roll down an inclined plane at different speeds. For the umpteenth time, Grigorenko played inconspicuously, Mamin did not look much better. Both do not burn their eyes after returning from the NHL. There are questions to Karnaukhov, the puck stubbornly did not want to obey Okulov. It’s hard to understand the managers who trusted him to take a penalty shootout twice. It stands to reason that nothing good came of it. For some reason, the turn of Slepyshev and Dietz never came.
In the first period, Nesterov opened the scoring at most with a deft shot through traffic, and then the hosts turned up the pressure, and four minutes before the end of regulation they responded with a goal. Link Kablukov put Okulov and company in checkmate, literally driving the puck into an empty net.
By the way, there should be no complaints against Sharychenkov. The army goalkeeper took courage and confidence. If it weren’t for him, the champions would hardly have celebrated the victory in the military derby held last Tuesday (4:2).
During free time, we will discuss the topic of the goal and try to highlight the reasons for the metamorphosis in Sharychenkov’s game.
Both teams could have scored in extra time. The army puck did not hold, and the hosts missed the empty goal. The judges were forced to punish the guests with a small fine for obvious delay, but for some reason they swallowed the whistle. Apparently, they watched hockey together to a packed house.
However, the majority of Dinamo continues to be the Achilles heel of the blue and whites. It seems that with the return of O’Dell, this glitch will be fixed.
The army team, just like in the last match against SKA, failed in the third half. Let’s see how Fedorov’s team will react to a painful blow to the nose. Already on Monday, CSKA is waiting in Nizhny Novgorod for the evil car factory after the defeat of SKA 2:6. And on Wednesday, the leader of the regular league will try to get even with the Muscovites for three straight defeats in the military derby.
Dynamo (Moscow) – CSKA – 2:1 B (0:1, 0:0, 1:0, 0:0, 1:0). Goals: Kablukov, Wil (bul. determined) – Nesterov.
