After edging a nine-goal thriller on Saturday, Sibir was involved in another barn-burner to start the week. The home team collected its second win of the season despite trailing 1-3 with less than two minutes to play.
The first period produced few chances, but Sibir was clearly on top without converting that supremacy into goals. In the second session, the home team still had most of the play but Dinamo demonstrated that when it comes to chances, quality counts for more than quality. The visitor spent just 1:47 on the attack but used the time wisely to score three goals. Daniels Berzins, Zack Mitchell and Janis Jaks found the target while home goalie Alexei Krasikov was replaced in the 36th minute.
Sibir dominated the third period, but still found it hard to solve Ilya Proskuryakov. It wasn’t until Juuso Puustinen scored in the 50th minute that the home team got on the board. Even then, the game looked to be done as the final two minutes rolled around with Dinamo up by two. But Sibir’s Finns had other ideas. Mikael Ruohomaa set up Yegor Milovzorov to make it 2-3 with 91 seconds left, then combined with Jyrki Jokipakka to create a second of the game for Puustinen 58 seconds from the end. And, deep into overtime, the same trio combined once more: Puustinen got his hat-trick goal, Ruohomaa finished with four assists and Sibir completed a remarkable comeback.
