Dinamo’s improvement continues, with the Latvians securing a third win in four games thanks to this overtime success in Kazakhstan. The visitor led three times in regulation without putting the game to bed, but a Kristaps Sotnieks strike was enough to win it in the extras.

The home team was looking to bounce back from a defeat against Admiral last time out and return to the top of the Chernyshev Division. In the early stages, it took a grip on proceedings, outshooting Dinamo 8-2 but failing to convert that advantage into goals.

In the second period, Riga punished Barys. The home team was still getting more shots, but the visitor found two goals. Rihards Marenis got his first of the season to give Dinamo the lead and Lauris Darzins restored that advantage after Alikhan Asetov tied the scores.

Roman Starchenko’s power play goal tied the game at the start of the third and the teams traded further tallies through Carter Ashton and Asetov’s second of the night. That was the young Kazakh’s first double in the KHL, but it wasn’t enough to get the win as Sotnieks fired home the decider in the 64th minute.
