In Saint Petersburg, SKA defeated reigning KHL Gagarin Cup champions HC Ak Bars for the second time in the 2018/2019 regular season, earning an emphatic 5:1 victory!

Usually, matches against Ak Bars are tight affairs, but this was anything but as SKA ran riot at the Ice Palace.

The game was practically over as a contest in the first period. Fired up for the match, SKA scored three, with Patrik Hersley launching a slap shot into the net before Sergei Plotnikov netted twice on the slot to make it 3:0.

Early in the second, our players increased the advantage to four, with Andrei Kuzmenko hitting the jackpot from the left faceoff circle. Nail Yakupov then tallied a marker against the Tatars, but before the frame was over, Paul Postma got Ak Bars on the board.

SKA saw the match out in the third to claim a huge 5:1 win! The next KHL match will take place against HC Dynamo in Moscow on December 10.
