Dinamo Minsk hockey players lose to Avangard Omsk in third match of KHL Nadezhda Cup finals, with Russian club taking the major trophy for second time

The Nadezhda Cup is for those teams failing to qualify for the Gagarin Cup play-offs. In two final matches, Avangard Omsk — known as the Russian ‘hawks’ — beat the Minsk squad 2:0 and 4:0 in the home matches. On the eve of the third match, the Russian club boasted an evident advantage, with the Minskers needing to win to continue in the series and remain in Omsk for another match. Unfortunately, the hosts were stronger, delivering the decisive puck 15 seconds before the end of the third period, to leave the score at 3:2.

So, in the final series of the KHL Nadezhda Cup for 2013/14, Avangard (Omsk) have beaten Dinamo (Minsk) in all three matches. Dinamo Minsk has finished the 6th KHL season (Western conference) in last, 14th position.

Next season, Czech forward Zbyněk Irgl won’t be playing for the ‘bisons’. The Minsk squad is now training for the IIHF World Championship, with the national squad. Belarusian Sergey Kostitsyn, who plays for Avangard Omsk, will be joining the national hockey team.
