14:40, — Sport
Dinamo Minsk beat Avangard Omsk at Minsk Arena on 4 October to make it the team’s two wins in row for the first time this KHL season.
The guests blew the game open 3:34 after the opening faceoff just to see Alexei Yefimenko tie it up for Dinamo three minutes later. The teams continued to trade goals throughout the game before Ilya Kaznadei scored what turned to be the game winner in the second period.
Geoff Platt scored on a powerplay at 8:26 to give Dinamo Minsk a 2-1 with his sixth goal this season. Soon enough Avangard got a chance to even the game with a one-man advantage, too. Andrei Stas tilted the game into Dinamo’s side on his first goal of the season just before the first intermission.
The guests evened the game early in the second. The draw lasted for 11 minutes before Ilya Kaznadei put the game-winning goal into the net, handing the Omsk team their eighth consecutive defeat.
Jacob Micflikier sat out as a healthy scratch. Dmitry Meleshko hit the ice after serving one-game ban for injuring an opponent by checking to the head and neck area. Avangard came to Minsk without one of its leading forwards Alexander Popov.
Minsk goalie Kevin Lalande made 37 saves in the victory. Omsk goaltender Teemu Lassila allowed three goals in the first period before being replaced by Denis Kostin after the first break.
Dinamo Minsk are back in action on Wednesday, 9 October, as they host Medvescak Zagreb.
