Great night at home country

Slovan began the evening with a tribute to Miroslav Satan, one of the greatest players in Slovak hockey history, before doing battle with Kunlun for the first time.

But this clash between the KHL’s oldest club and its newest went the way of the visitor from Beijing as Tuukka Mantyla got an overtime winner on the power play 32 seconds before the end.

Jonathan Cheechoo opened the scoring for Slovan midway through the game, but the Chinese team tied it up in the 52nd minute with a goal made in Slovakia. Martin Bakos was the provider, chipping an awkward looping shot at Justin Pogge, and Tomas Marcinko was on hand to shoot home the rebound.
