Today, the third Kyiv derby of the season is waiting for Vadym Shakhraichuk’s team. The second round will begin with match against another team from capital – HC Tryzub.

The previous match between these teams didn`t bring too much much intrigue. Capitals sent 10 pucks in the possession of Oleksandr Iakovenko’s team. Therefore, the guests will consider the upcoming meeting as a chance to prove their superiority over the opponent again. Instead, Tryzub has an opportunity to try to take revenge for such a painful defeat.

It should be noted that Oleksandr Iakovenko’s team managed to get the first victory in the championship last Friday. They beat Kharkiv Berserks on the ice of their native Palace of Sports. On the other hand, the Capitals approach the match in a good mood, having defeated the current winner of the Cup of Ukraine – HC Kremenchuk with a score of 6:0 the day before. According to the results of the match, goalkeeper of the Capitals Borys Babik was recognized as the best player, who made the third shutout during the championship. If we talk about the defensive line, then we can pay attention to the debut of Denis Berdniks, who went on the ice as part of the first line and distinguished himself with an assist on Serhii Chernenko.

We will also talk about the attack, where, first of all, we will admit the performance of Yaroslav Panchenko, who is currently the best scorer of the championship. The Capitals forward scored a double and had one assist in his team’s last match. Currently, Panchenko has eight goals and five assists.

It should be noted that one of the matches of this tour took place yesterday. Kremenchuk lost to Sokil for the second time this season on the ice of Iceberg. Also this evening Kharkiv Berserks will host Dnipro in Vinnytsia.
