Climatic shootout

Traktor lost to Kunlun.

Tournament’s schedule somehow left only 15 hours for Traktor to recover after the game against Metallurg. This lead to inert start and lack of dangerous moments near the Kunlun’s net. Chinese team otherwise used the only moment it had. Corey Kane broke away to the Pavel Francouz’ goal and directed the puck right into the top corner – 0:1.

Second period brought equalizer for Traktor. Alexander Sharov scored after spectacular combination and shot from the slot – 1:1. Assists went to Ivan Vishnevsky and Maxim Yakutsenya. At the end of the period Pavel Francouz showed his class making a couple of great saves. Third period fully belonged to Kunlun who won the shooting duel – 12:2, but Traktor’s defense and goalkeeper kept the score even. The result was eventually determined by the shootout. Teams made 32 penalty shots, but the winning shot was executed by Jeffrey Kinraid.

Traktor had 5 points by the end of the tournament. Maxim Yakutsenya was named the best forward of the tournament.
