SKA conceded a disappointing 3:4 overtime defeat to HC Lokomotiv Yaroslavl on the road in the 2019/2020 KHL regular season, the fifth consecutive loss in the championship.
Alexander Barabanov twice gave SKA the lead, but despite those goals, Lokomotiv came back and were leading 3:2 until defenseman Artyom Zub sent the game to overtime with a late equaliser.
Unfortunately, Lokomotiv edged it in the extra frame, scoring the winner in the second minute of play.
SKA will now travel to Cherepovets to face HC Severstal and get back to winning ways again.
