KHL. Amur - Barys 4:5 SO
In the first match of 2021, Amur and Barys revealed the winner only in a penalty shootout.
The visitors opened the scoring in the middle of the first period and a combination of stunts of Panyukov-Frettin played again, and the latter extended his points streak. But even before the break, Amur took the lead through the efforts of Polunin and Lugin, who came up trumps.
In the second period, Jordan, after his solo pass, solidified the lead of the host. But then two accurate shots from Kazakhstan followed - Akolzin (the first goal of the season) and Starchenko scored.
In the final third, the opponents exchanged effective attacks. Goals were netted by Tereshchenko and Mikhailis. The game went into overtime, where each team had chances, but still the opponents did not reveal the winner in 65 minutes.
