Salavat Yulaev defeated Kunlun Red Star in overtime

Salavat Yulaev played the last match before the break in the KHL with the Chinese club. In the current regular season, Salavat Yulaev has already met twice with Kunlun Red Star. Then the rivals had an equal number of wins.

The first period of the match ended with an equal score, although the Ufa team had twice more shots than the Kunlun team. The first goal was scored by Vyacheslav Solodukhin, playing three-to-two with Zharkov and Biryukov. In the middle of twenty minutes, the guests capitalized on the power play. Jake Chelios scored the goal.
At the beginning of the second period, Salavat Yulaev capitalized on the power play. Teemu Hartikainen once again achieved success - 2: 1. Kunlun did not lag behind for long. In the 30th minute of the match, Hunter Shinkaruk equalized the score on the power play. Ufa-Arena saw a couple more penalties, though no goals.
In the third period, the opponents played too carefully, as evidenced by the zero statistics of penalty minutes.
50 seconds before the end of overtime, Philip Larsen scored the final goal of the match - 3: 2.
