In the concluding match of this particular training camp, SKA defeated Sochi on the road, emerging victorious by a narrow score of 2:1.
Vasily Tokranov pounced on a sloppy Sochi mistake in the 57th minute of proceedings to tally the hard-fought win. In the second period, fellow defenseman Georgy Solyannikov had equalised by sending a rasping attempt over Sochi goalkeeper Maxim Tretyak.
Solid SKA goaltender Dmitry Nikolaev stopped 26 of the 27 Sochi shots he faced.
SKA will return to action in late February with a series of friendly games against Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg and Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod in Saint Petersburg.
