The evening game saw tournament host Dinamo Riga take on Avtomobilist. The visitor went without its imports, while Dinamo sent out a strong line-up.
Once again, Carter Ashton was a key figure. After impressing in the Sochi Hockey Open earlier this month, he potted two more goals here, finding the net late in each of the first two periods. One of the goals was at even strength, the other on the power play. Ben Marshall chipped in with a couple of assists.
