Lokomotiv game 4

The boys from Yaroslavl go to 3-1 with a 4-1 win in front of 2,670 in Izhevsk, a town that sits on the NW side of a circle formed by Perm (Molot Prikamye), Yekaterinburg (Automobilst), Cheylabinsk  (Traktor), Ufa (Salavat Yulaev) and Kazan (Ak Bars).  Kirill Kaputsin put us on the board with a power play goal at 2:30 into thew match, and Maxim Zyuzyakin got the first of his 2 goals at 14:07.  Less than 3 minutes later, a penalty on Vladislav Vorobyev for a high-stick led to a power play goal for Izhvesk to cut things to 2-1.

Less than 5 minutes into the second stanza, Oleg Yashin tallied his 8th of the year (and 3rd for us) to push it to 3-1, and Zyuzyakin got his 2nd of the game (third of the season) shorthanded  with 38 seconds left in the game.  For a change, Lokomotiv outshot the opposition 44-33, and this time it was an even younger goalie in the nets.  Pavel Shegalo, 18 years and 10 months old, stopped 33 of 34  For a team that’s given up one goal or less in three of four outings.

The kids get their first real challenge at home Wednesday against HC Donbass, a Ukrainian outfit who is 22-7-5 and hasn’t lost since the 20th of last month.
