Nikita Khlystov: «We will try to change it»


Neftekhimik defenseman Nikita Khlystov speaks with the media after a following 1–5 loss against CSKA.

– It is hard to find any words in this situation. All the guys care about this. Everyone is trying to do his best; there is just some kind of inconsistency, especially with breakout. We will try to change it. CSKA have a good positional attack. When you cannot leave defensive zone for a long time, you do not have enough stamina to attack, you become tired and in the middle zone, the only thought is to have a rest on the bench. This led to penalties; we spent almost the entire second period shorthanded. Nevertheless, we tried to our best and fought to the very end.
