POSTGAME COMMENTS OF HEAD COACHES OF "NEFTEKHIMIK" AND "KUNLUN RS"
Curt Fraser, the head coach of "Kunlun RS":
- We knew that it’s going to be a very difficult game. "Neftekhimik" is a strong team, and we were very fortunate in the first two periods to have our goaltender play exceptional game. In the third period, we got few lucky bounces and scored couple goals.
In general, it was a hard fought game, every game this year has been tie-tie battle, we were very fortunate tonight to get to win.
Vyacheslav Butsayev, the head coach of HC "Neftekhimik":
- This season we have played four games with "Kunlun RS". In all games, the scenario was approximately the same: we had the initiative, and the opponent won. It is shows the level and experience of the team.
We had enough opportunities in the first two periods. We would like to see the game, like in the first two periods. Nevertheless, at the beginning of the third period, we began to do not what we asked the team during intermission. That is why the opponent took advantage of our mistakes.
