Full steam ahead! Lokomotiv is charging towards a berth in the final of the Continental Hockey League.

On Thursday they defeated Metallurg Magintogorsk 2-0 to win their best-of-seven contest 4-1.

Two quick goals late in the second gave the host its vital edge.

Lokomotiv will play the winners of the other semi-final between AK bars and Dynamo Moscow.

Ak bars are 3-1 up in their series and victory in Moscow on Friday would see them through.
