Gagarin Cup: how SKA suffered a crushing defeat from CSKA in the final of the West

All good things come to an end – this phrase is quite suitable for the 15th Gagarin Cup playoffs. Kazan “Ak Bars” on April 9 in the fifth match beat Omsk “Avangard” on its site and secured participation in the final series of the current season of the Continental Hockey League (KHL). While the team Zinetuly Bilyaletdinova is recovering and preparing for the next round, “star wars” with the participation of SKA and CSKA continue in the West.

The series returned to St. Petersburg with an equal score of 2:2. Team Roman Rotenberg wanted to repeat the success of a year ago. Then, on April 10, the Petersburgers also beat CSKA 3:2 in the fifth match of the Western final series and took the lead. However, this time SKA’s path to the final is much more difficult than a year earlier.

The night before, the Petersburgers suffered a crushing defeat in the Ice Palace with a score of 3:7 and they have no more room for error. For more details on how the next episode of the “army derby” went – in the material of the correspondent of the Federal News Agency Gleb Lisovsky.
