Former Washington Capitals defender Shaone Morrisonn has got his first KHL goal to hand Spartak an 3-2 overtime win over Severstal in Moscow.

­Grigory Zheldakov opened the score for Spartak early in the first period, but two goals in two minutes saw Severstal retake the lead.

The side from Cherepovets moved 2-1 in front through Denis Kazionov and Aleksandr Ryazantsev.

However, a great wrist shot from Andrey Shefer sent the game into overtime.

It was the home side which prevailed in the end, with Morrisonn coming up with a vital touch, 3-2.

“I’ll certainly keep the puck, which became my first in the KHL and gave the victory to Spartak, as s souvenir,” the scorer of the winning goal told “I’ll ask for a commemorative inscription on Russian to be done on it.”

It was just Spartak’s second win in eight games, with the Red-and-Whites sitting 11th in the Western Conference.
