On August 4, SKA made a perfect start to the Sochi Hockey Open, breezing past HC Lokomotiv Yaroslavl with a 6:0 triumph.
In the first period, Evgeny Ketov put our team in the box seat, before Linden Vey and Emil Galimov practically put the game out of sight in the second with further goals.
Kirill Marchenko, Lukas Bengtsson and Danila Galenyuk all hit the jackpot in the concluding third stanza to seal the deal. Goalkeeper Alexander Samonov stopped all 26 Lokomotiv shots which he faced.
