Former Mexican provides loan goal
Game Recap: Sibir - SKA
Sergei Naumov made 20 saves en route to his first shut-out in SKA uniform, while Alex Galushkin scored game's lone goal to lead visiting team to their second road win of the season.
All the exiting events in this rather unspectacular game came in the first period. Galushkin, who just two seasons ago played his hockey in Mexico(!), scored on two-on-one break accepting a cross rink pass from SKA captain Alexei Koznev. Than seven minutes into the game a two on two fight took place behind Naumov's net. Sibir's Martin Tomasek outgunned SKA's Andrei Shurupov, while there wasn't a clear winner in scramble between Sergei Rozin and Vyacheslav Zavalnyuk.
The rest of the time SKA played smart defensive hockey, while Sibir forwards clearly lacked skill and imagination, as Naumov didn't have to make a big save all game long. Meantime his colleague Christian Bronsard managed several spectacular acts and played a great game in a loosing cause.
