CSKA wins the first KHL semifinal game

CSKA wins the first KHL semifinal game

Henrik Lundqvist22 Mar 2016Henrik Lundqvist»

CSKA Moscow beat another army club – SKA St. Petersburg in the opener of the series.


Just like last year the two army clubs met in the semifinals, and just like last year CSKA opened with a 3-0 win at home. Last year SKA was also down 3-0 in the series to turn it to a 4-3 win and then beat Ak Bars in the finals. Will CSKA let that happen again?

Today the Moscow club scored a goal in each period and since the young CSKA star goalie Ilya Sorokin continues to impress, saving all 27 shots, the home team got a comfortable win.

Roman Lyubimov scored the first goal in the middle of the first period and Stéphane Da Costa on a powerplay in the middle of the second.

SKA pulled their Finnish goalie Mikko Koskinen towards the end and Dmitry Kugryshev scored his first goal of the playoffs to secure the win.

Koskinen was by the way named best goalie of the quarter finals thanks to two shutouts and four wins against Dynamo Moscow. His teammate Vadim Shipachyov was not on the scoring sheet today but he scored 12 points (4+8) in the quarter finals to be named best forward.

Tomorrow starts the other KHL semi final series between Metallurg Magnitogorsk and Salavat Yulayev Ufa.
