With an outstanding performance of goalie Nikita Boyarkin, Nomad Astana blanked Grenoble at Continental Cup semifinals


Most likely, the dream of reaching the Superfinals for Grenoble ends this evening: a huge disappointment for the club and its passionate fans. To still have hope, the French must beat Cardiff with many goals and hope for a defeat of Zemgale against the Kazakhs. huge disappointment for the club and its passionate fans. Even against Nomad Astana we saw the same inaccuracies as in the first match, many shots, but without having the clarity to find the best position to score. Beyond the defects of Grenoble, however, we must remember the outstanding performance of the Kazakh goalkeeper Nikita Boyarkin, literally an insurmountable wall,
In the first period Grenoble seems to repeat the same script as the match against Zemgale: large number of opportunities to score (20-8 SOG in the first period), but inability to transform the amount of play created into goals, while the opponents score more easily: at 08:41 in Power Play Vyacheslav Kolesnikov beats Raphael Garnier. Grenoble can also take advantage of a double superiority, but without being able to beat goalkeeper Boyarkin.
In the middle period, after an aggressive start by Grenoble, Nomad doubled their lead after a long attack, with an intelligent pass from Guseinov that found Eduard Shetle unmarked, ready to deposit it into the net. In the final period Nikita Boyarkin becomes a real wall, against which Grenoble's attacks repeatedly crash, which totally dominates the last 20 minutes, but the Kazakh goalkeeper is literally unbeatable.
