MOSCOW, October 31 (RIA Novosti)
A goal and two assists from New York Islanders defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky helped his lockout team Slovan Bratislava thrash Sibir Novosibirsk 6-2 on home ice.
KHL newcomer Slovan stays seventh in the Western Conference, while Sibir's fourth straight loss sees the former Eastern Conference leader now sixth.
“We conceded three goals when we were short-handed,” Sibir coach Dmitry Kvartalnov said.
“We played poorly in defense and we also had a great opponent today.”
In the first period, the teams exchanged goals as Slovan’s Canadian forward Jonathan Sigalet equalized after Konstantin Glazachev scored an opener 30 seconds into the game.
Then hosts scored three times in an eight-minute surgein the second period as Visnovsky, Buffalo Sabres defenseman Andrej Sekera and Roman Kukumberg all hit the target.
After Maxim Krivonozhkin narrowed the gap to 4-2, Slovan's Martin Stajnoch and Kukumberg struck to extend the hosts' lead in the third.
Visnovsky has now notched up nine points in 12 KHL appearances.
