Sibir battled back from 0-2 to win this game thanks to a strong third-period performance. Nikolai Zavarukhin’s team advances to the playoffs on the back of a second successive victory, while Dinamo finishes the season in second from last place in the overall KHL standings.

The visitor had won on this ice two days earlier when it overcame Kunlun Red Star in a game relocated away from China. Carter Ashton was on the scoresheet in that encounter, and he opened the scoring here midway through the first period. Ben Marshall increased the lead at the start of the second, but that was the high point of the day for the Latvians.

Mikael Ruohomaa pulled a goal back midway through the game, but the fightback got underway in earnest in the final stanza. Igor Makarov and Alexander Sharov struck on either side of the 50-minute mark to turn the game around before Danil Romantsev sealed the verdict with five minutes to play.
