Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Salavat Yulaev vs Dynamo Minsk

Salavat Yulaev

The Ufa club is slowly starting to wake up, after an inexpressive start to the championship, showing good hockey in the last matches. In early October, Salavat Yulaev to some extent contributed to the resignation of Anvar Gatiyatulin, managing to beat Traktor for the second time in less than a week. Then there was an away match in Magnitogorsk, where the Ufa team, after losing 3-6 in the first match, managed to take full revenge, beating Metallurg in the second match with a score of 6-2. Returning to Ufa, Viktor Kozlov’s team did not slow down, no less confidently defeating one of the leaders of the Eastern Conference, Avtomobilist, on home ice with a score of 4-1, and then defeated Vityaz near Moscow, sending three unanswered goals into the visitors’ goal in the first period.

In the match with the Moscow region team, the first effective actions were made by Josh Leivo, who played 51 matches for St. Louis last season. The Canadian forward should become a replacement for his fellow countryman Josh Ho-Sang, who failed to become part of the Ufa club. A series of successful matches also affected the tournament position of the Ufa team, now Salavat Yulaev is already fourth in the East, with 20 points scored, seven points behind the leading Magnitogorsk Metallurgist.

Dynamo Minsk

The Minsk team are in some ways repeating the path of Salavat Yulaev in the current championship, gradually finding themselves after not the best performance in the opening matches. It was clear that Dmitry Kvartalnov, who returned to big hockey after a year-long break, needed time and results would definitely appear. While this is the case, the Minsk club is steadily moving up, having already gone from outsiders of the conference to a strong middle peasant.

In the last couple of weeks alone, the Minsk club managed to beat Ak Bars 3-2, St. Petersburg SKA 4-2, Barys 3-0, Lokomotiv 3-2, Kunlun 4-0. Dynamo's winning streak now totals four matches, which is the Minsk team's best result this season. Such a surge in play allowed the Minsk club to climb to sixth position in the Western Conference standings, beating such giants as CSKA and SKA. Now the Minsk team has 18 points and a good prospect to continue their path to the top of the standings.

An interesting detail: if at the start of the season the Ufa club played fairly closed hockey, as a result of which most matches turned out to be “grassroots”, now the game concept has changed noticeably and the emphasis is on playing in attack.
