Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on HC Sochi vs Dynamo Moscow

HC Sochi

The Sochi club has thrown off the burden of potentially being the main outsider of the championship, having had a bright start. Eight victories in September alone, being among the leaders of the Western Conference - a special flavor of such a result is added by the fact that the team’s success is directly related to the name of Dmitry Kokarev. The current coach of HC Sochi only got rid of the acting prefix in the summer, but has already managed to prove his importance to the team.

At the same time, it must be admitted that in October the Sochi team noticeably reduced the productivity of their own play, starting to lose more often than to score points. It is likely that the turning point will be the home match against St. Petersburg SKA, in which the Sochi team won a strong-willed victory. The Sochi team turned 0-2 after the first period into 3-2 in the second, but were unable to maintain the advantage, and at the beginning of the third period they again lost the score 3-4. And then the Sochi team performed a kind of miracle, first equalizing the score in the minority, and then 36 seconds before the final whistle, managing to score the winning puck. This success allowed HC Sochi to remain in the top eight cup teams in the Western Conference. The southerners now have 24 points, which corresponds to sixth place.

Dynamo Moscow

If the Sochi residents are just beginning to get out of their own gaming crisis, then Dynamo successfully closed its unsuccessful period in October. The blue and white team played into the hands of a four-match home series, which the capital team played perfectly. Victories over Sibir 2-1, Severstal 3-2, Lada 5-4 and Vityaz 5-2 returned the blue and white to the top of the conference, adding lost confidence to the hockey players.

The victorious pace of the capital team continued on the road; the visit to Ufa, to visit the local Salavat Yulaev, turned out to be successful. The opponents scored only three goals between them, two of which were scored by the Dynamo hockey players. In the first period, Artyom Ilyenko scored a goal, to which the Ufa team responded with a goal scored in the minority. Well, the winning point in this match was set by the experienced Eric O'Dell, who scored his 11th goal this season in the eighth minute of the third period. After a series of five victories, Dynamo has come close to the leader in the West, Spartak, currently losing to the red and white by only one point.
