Sochi hockey players suffered one of the biggest defeats of the season. The local army men became the offenders of the “leopards” in St. Petersburg. The score of the meeting was 8:1 in favor of the representatives of the northern capital.
The match against the leader of the Western Conference of the KHL was initially designated as very problematic. However, over the course of two periods, the “resort team” still resisted and were even able to score in the second twenty minutes. Vasily Glotov scored the goal against the Sochi team. The score 1:3 after two periods in a hockey match cannot be called catastrophic. However, in the final segment of the meeting, everything went wrong for SKA, as they say. As a result, the score was 8:1 and complete despondency appeared on the faces of the hockey players from the Olympic capital.
The only bonus for this match for HC Sochi is that they became direct participants in setting a world record for attendance at indoor games. Today SKA held a match for the first time on the largest ice arena. More than 20 thousand people attended this match.
As for the next game, the Sochi team will play it at home on February 14 against Nizhny Novgorod Torpedo.
