MOSCOW, February 22 (R-Sport) - Overtime goals brought Moscow sides Dynamo and CSKA victories that saw them go 2-0 up in their respective KHL conference quarterfinal series.
Gagarin Cup holder Dynamo built upon a 5-1 thrashing of Slovan Bratislava to register a 3-2 win over the Slovaks courtesy of Alexei Sopin's second of the night late Thursday.
Jakub Petruzalek scored the opener for Dynamo, his third of the series, before Mario Bliznak and Roman Kukumberg put Slovan ahead.
But Sopin hit a second for the hosts to send it into overtime.
Across town, CSKA Moscow bought overtime against Lev Prague two minutes from the horn through a Yakov Rylov goal. Rylov was the overtime hero in the series opener, but this time the honor went to Igor Grigorenko, who made it 3-2 with seconds remaining.
As in the first game, the Radulov brothers engineered most of the goal action, with Alexander opening the scoring off an assist from Igor, before both were credited with an assist on Rylov's leveler.
Nicklas Danielsson and Michal Birner did the scoring for Lev.
Meanwhile, Lokomotiv Yaroslavl leveled its series against Severstal Cherepovets at one game apiece with a 2-1 win in regulation that was secured by Sweden's ex-NHL star Staffan Kronwall.
Lokomotiv went ahead thanks to Daniil Apalkov's first-period goal, canceled out by Alexander Ryazantsev's effort in the second.
