In the only KHL preseason game of the day, Torpedo lost to Dynamo Moscow, 3-1. The preseason game, which was played in four 15-minute periods, also included a shootout at the end, regardless of the score at the end of regulation.
In the shootout, Capitals forward prospect Bogdan Trineyev converted his lone opportunity with nice glove-side wrister.
