After the painful defeats of the first day, KHL Zagreb and Skautafelag Reykjavik face each other to find the first points in Continental Group B in Kaunas

The first period showed a balance between the two teams, with chances at both ends, but with SR goalkeeper Johann Ragnarsson busier. After a goal disallowed in Zagreb, the Icelanders found the opening goal on a puck lost by Zagreb in attack, with Kari Arnasson serving Solvi Atlason alone in front of goalkeeper Troha, for the easy goal.

In the central period Zagreb overturned the result in a few minutes, with Nico Ljubicic's equalizer at 22.22' and then Domen Vedlin's goal just 2 minutes later. The Croatian team definitely takes control of the match and wastes two excellent opportunities with Svetlicic and Bruno Zovko. Whoever makes a mistake pays, and so SR equalizes with a precise shot from Petr Stepanek. But at the end of the period it is still Zagreb who takes the lead again: on the power play it is Bruno Zovko who finds the corner to beat Ragnarsson.

After a third period rather lacking in emotion, 4 minutes from the end Petr Stepanek found Reykjavik's third goal with a precise and powerful shot from far away. The Icelanders try a final assault, but are punished by the final 5-3 goal, scored two minutes from the end by Fran Skretic after a confusing melee in front of Ragnarsson's cage
