MINSK, 26 December (BelTA) – HC Dinamo Minsk lost to HC Traktor Chelyabinsk 0-2 (0-1, 0-0, 0-1) in the KHL action on 25 December, BelTA has learned.
In Chelyabinsk, Dinamo Minsk tried to build on its success after the win in Togliatti (2-1). Coach Gordie Dwyer did not produce changes to the squad but still the team failed to score.
Nick Bailen, once a Dinamo Minsk player, opened the scoring in the first period. The defenseman chased the puck off the boards and slung in an instinctive shot that deceived Jhonas Enroth with 12 minutes played.
The visitor worked hard for an equalizer but could not beat Pavel Francouz. Traktor's goalie made 42 saves, and Linus Videll finished the job with an empty net goal.More about Sport
