Vladimir Petrov scored three goals, and assisted on two others to lead the Soviet Union team to a hard fought 7-5 victory over the Cincinnati Stingers Tuesday night in the second game of a challenge series with the World Hockey Association.

The Soviets defeated the night before by the New England Whalers, had to fight back three times in the final period after the Stingers tied the game.

Cincinnati's Richie Leduc scored two of the tying goals in the third period and Rick Dudley tied it at 5-5 after Petrov netted a shorthanded goal.

The Stingers pulled the goalie out of the net in an all-out effort to score on a power play following a Soviet penalty. However, Petrov stole the puck and passed it to Victor Shalimov who scored the clincher.
