At the Saint Petersburg Ice Palace, SKA had far too much firepower for HC Dinamo Minsk, easing to a comfortable 5:0 triumph to make it three consecutive wins in the 2019/2020 KHL regular season.
Immediately, SKA took the initiative in a blowout first period, scoring four times through Maxim Karpov, Ivan Morozov, Jarno Koskiranta and Kirill Marchenko.
Morozov completed the rout in the third period with a fifth marker.
Swedish goalkeeper Magnus Hellberg stopped all 20 shots he faced.
SKA will next take to the ice at home on Thursday against Avangard Omsk.
