A shootout loss for Dinamo

with 3 comments

This evening Dinamo Riga played its second exhibition game before the start of 2010/11 KHL season. The game was held in Tukums and Dinamo lost 2:3 to Amur Khabarovsk in the shootout.

Although Amur played a great first period, the visiting team, with Latvian Martins Cipulis on the roster, managed to put themselves up by two goals only in the middle of the second period. With 46 seconds in between, goals were scored by Canadian David Ling and Sergei Arekaev. However, eights second before the end of the period Aleksandrs Nizivijs scored a powerplay goal. In early third period Mark Hartigan scored the tying goal, which let the game go into a penalty shootout, where Amur was more successful, clinching their second victory in a row.

Dinamo Riga – Amur Khabarovsk 2:3 SO (0:0, 1:2, 1:0, 0:1)

Goals: 30:04 Ling (PP) 0:1, 30:50 Arekaev 0:2, 39:52 Nizivijs (Ozolins, PP) 1:2, 41:19 Hartigan (Cibulskis, Nizivijs) 2:2

Dinamo line-up:

Chris Holt (Edgars Lusins)

Lauris Darzins – Janis Sprukts – Mikelis Redlihs; Arvids Rekis – Krisjanis Redlihs

Tomas Surovy – Mark Hartigan – Aleksandrs Nizivijs; Sandis Ozolins – Oskars Cibulskis

Martins Karsums – Andris Dzerins – Girts Ankipans; Rodrigo Lavins – Guntis Galvins

Juraj Simek – Ainars Podzins – Roberts Bukarts; Jekabs Redlihs – Janis Andersons

After this game only two of the players with try-out contracts have not played as of yet. Those are 19-year-old defender Martins Jakovlevs, who most likely is going to spend the season with HK Riga, and forward Juris Stals. Although Mikael Tellqvist arrived to Riga yesterday, he, naturally, did not play just yet. Brock Trotter will land at Riga International Airport on Sunday.

The next exhibition game Dinamo Riga will play on August 10, when it will face Dynamo Minsk. It will be the first game of President of the Republic of Kazakhstan’s Cup in Astana, Kazakhstan. Beside Riga and Minsk, also Barys Astana and Atlant Mytischi will take part in the tournament.

  1. savāds spēles formāts bija, bet OT.
    P.S. šodien HK Rīga uzspēlēja vs. Liepājas Metalurgs-2. bija interesanti.

    • Laikam jāgaida, kad sāksies LAČ, lai zinātu, kas LM-2 maz spēlē.

      Un cerams, ka 11. augustā, kad notiks mistiskā LHF sēde, beidzot tiks arī finalizēts, kuras komandas LAČ vispār spēlēs. Pieteikumi jau šovasar gana daudz salasījušies.

      • pieteikumi, šķiet, 9.
        LM-2 papildinājies arī no Dinamo Juniors asinsrites.
        bet šī konkrētā spēle beidzās ar 5:4 HK Rīga labā.
        ja esi Latvijā, ir vērts piebraukāt līdz Piņķiem.
        nākamās spēles Piņķos ar HK Rīga dalību – 20., 21. augusts. abas pret MHL vienību Minskas Junost.
