The Bears are hosting the mighty CSKA Moscow, the Russian team with a rich history, on Thursday, September 18th at 8PM in the Ice Hall of Dom Sportova. Last season they played CSKA at home and away, and the game in the Ice Hall left a very special memory. On that unbelievable Friday September 6th 2013, the Bears not only played their first historic game in the KHL, but also surprised CSKA with seven goals while the Russians only scored one.
The second time the two teams met in Moscow near the end of the regular season. The Bears scored three goals, which was enough to defeat CSKA again (1:3).
In anticipation of the new faceoff between the Bears and the Red Army, we are reminded of how it all went down in the first game of the last season.
