Maxim Berezin :«Fortune favors the brave»


Neftekhimik defenseman Maxim Berezin speaking with the media after a following 4–3 OT win against Amur.

– We understand that we need to win as much as possible games. We need to make playoffs. Everyone is trying to do his best, blocking the shots. Our goaltender kept us in the game. Only together, we can succeed.

– What can you say about today’s game?

– It was a hard one. You know, all the games are hard to play. We may have lost confidence. We can get it back by having goal-scoring chances and goals.

– Could you explain why our team was penalized in the third period?

– Perhaps, we just wanted to take the puck. We aspired for better, but it turned out as it always does.

– During final minutes of the third, Amur tied the game up and in overtime, they also got a shootout attempt ...

– Fortune favors the brave. We took advantage of our goal-scoring chances, our opponent did not. «Tikhiy» (Tikhomirov – Neftekhimik goaltender) kept us in the game.

– The day after tomorrow there is a second hard game against Amur.

– Khabarovsk plays fast-paced hockey. We will work on our mistakes and get ready for the next game. The main thing is not to be penalyzed. Today we scored two power play goals.
