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 Sportbox.ru. “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.
