Sochi surprised Dinamo Riga, and not even another goal from Linus Videll could save the Latvians from a heavy home defeat.
Kirill Kapustin gave the visitor the ideal start with a third-minute goal and Nikita Tochitsky made it 2-0 in the 11th minute. That saw Timur Bilyalov come on in place of Kristers Gudlevskis, but Dinamo was unable to find a foothold in the game. The second period saw Sochi have the better of the play and it wasn’t until the 56th minute that Videll – Dinamo’s game-winner on Monday – pull one back for the host.
There was no grandstand finish this time, though. Nikita Shchitov made it 3-1 on the power play and Damir Rakhimullin found the empty net for his first KHL goal to wrap up the win.
