Salavat Yulaev lost to Avtomobilist with new lineup and coach Tsulygin

The coronavirus epidemic has finally captured Salavat Yulaev. It took part in the home game with Avtomobilist in quite experimental composition. Nikolai Tsulygin again became the chief coach. Ufa-Arena greeted the Ufa specialist with loud applause.
Only Kugryshev, Vorobyov, Biryukov, Alekseev, Semenov, Mukhamadullin, Lisovets remained from the team of masters.
Both opponents made many mistakes in the first period. Players of Bill Peters capitalized on one of them. Nikita Belousov achieved success in the power play in the fourth minute - 0: 1. Salavat Yulaev could equalize the score in the "5 vs 3" game, but lack of teamwork did its part.
By the end of the second twenty minutes, Salavat Yulaev was already losing 0: 4. The guests from the capital of the Urals achieved success three times when playing in unequal compositions. Goals were scored by Brooks Meisek, Alexey Makeev, and Anatoly Golyshev.
Ufa could improve the situation in the third period during the power play in the 44th minute. However, this moment was not realized either. By the equator of the final segment of regular time, Rodion Amirov had a chance to hit Yakub Kovar’s net, but the Avtomobilist goalkeeper, apparently, decided to improve his personal statistics of shutout matches. Amirov got his way, but a little later - in the 55th minute. This tough match for the hosts ended with a score of 1: 4.
Salavat Yulaev will play the next match on October 3, visiting Neftekhimik.
