The composition of the Russian team at the second tournament of the Eurotour in Finland was announced on October 30 [8] .

Yevgeny Varlamov, defender of Magnitogorsk Metallurg, was appointed captain of the national team [9] . Traditionally, one of the matches of the Karjala Cup has been taken out of Finland . This time it was the game Czech Republic - Sweden, which took place on November 9 in Prague .

In the opening match, the hosts of the tournament played with the Russian team. The previous 10 matches with the Finns at Karjala Kap ended in 10 defeats for the Russians [10] , while Finland won nine times in its tournament. Meanwhile, incorrect data on the coaching team of the Russian national team were published on the official website of the Finnish Hockey Federation, who called Krikunov the head coach, and Mikhailov and Yurzinov his assistants.

In the first period of the match against Finland, Russian hockey players managed to score two goals - Andrei Kuteikin and Ivan Nepryaev scored. However, between these goals, in the 7th minute, Artyukhin took Yari Viukhola to the knee and the Finnish center forward was taken from the platform by the arms. Arbitrators punished the player with a match penalty, and the incident was parsed at a special meeting [11] , as a result of which the player was disqualified for two games. [12] The owners of the ice spent the second period much more actively, and as a result they managed to equalize the score. Goals scored by Janne Niskala and Es Pirnes. But in the third period, Peter Happy, throwing an uncomfortable hand, scored the third and winning puck. In another match, the Czech national team beat Sweden 5-4. Thus, the Russian team increased the gap in the overall standings of the Eurotour. Russia scored 11 points, while the Czech team that took second place had only 5 points.
