In the second match of the third stage of the 2020-21 Euro Hockey Tour, the senior Russian national team sneaked past host nation Sweden, claiming a narrow 2-1 victory in a penalty shootout.

Danila Moiseyev equalized in the 37th minute after Emil Pettersson had given the Swedes the advantage. In the end, a shootout was indeed required to separate the sides for the third time in the campaign, and Vladimir Butuzov scored the winner with goalkeeper Alexander Samonov stopping all five Swedish attempts in Malmö.
