Dynamo Moscow have moved top of the KHL’s Western Conference, with Alex Ovechkin scoring two points in a 3-2 win against Slovan in Bratislava.
The Muscovites found the net twice in the opening period, with Ovi scoring himself and assisting Denis Kokarev.
However, the Slovakian outfit also had their hero as right wing Miroslav Satan upset his former club twice in the second and third periods.
But before Satan's second, it was Grigory Shafigulin, who added Dynamo's third, assuring the visitors’ win.
Meanwhile, another side from the Russian capital, Spartak, were also victorious on the night, thrashing Dynamo Minsk on home ice.
Egor Mikhailov opened for the Muscovites early on, before the hosts added three more goals in the second period.
All Minsk could do was pull back a consolation in the final stretch to make the final score 4-1.
In the other big encounter of the night, Salavat Yulaev needed a shoot-out to beat Ak Bars away in Kazan, 4-3.
