The Bears return with 10 points
The Bears come back from Russia's far East with a total of 10 points. After three wins in the East, they secured another point in Habarovsk against Amur. The game ended in 4:3 in a shootout. 
Amur attacked more than Medvescak in the first period, with a shots on goal ratio of 19:7 in their favour, but the period ended in a tie regardless. The Bears, who welcomed Kyle Klubertanz back to their lineup, took the lead in the 10th minute with a powerplay goal from Matt Ellison. Eight minutes later, Brian Salcido tied it at 1:1 in a powerplay. 
''We played well, they were lucky to score that third goal during a 6-on-4 powerplay. But despite that, we're happy with these away games and how we did at them. If someone had offered us these ten points before we left, we wouldn't have taken them right away. So we're happy with how everything played out. Now we have two home games before the break'', said Matt Murley.
In the second period the Bears pressed the home team more, and they had a great opportunity open up during a powerplay in the 37th minute, which Bill Thomas capitalized on. Amur tied the game in the 55th minute (Jan Murshak), while just 29 seconds later the Bears retook the lead thanks to Ryan Vesce. However, Dimitrij Tarasov tied the game in its final minute and called for overtime. In the end, the winner was determined in a shootout, in which Habarovsk's team had more luck.
