Press Conference «Vityaz – Neftekhimik» 11/14/2022

Oleg Leontyev, the head coach of HC Neftekhimik:

– Guys did a great job! I congratulated them on the victory! It was a hard-battled game. Moreover, our goaltender played his first KHL game (Anton Kislitsyn played 168 VHL games and retired after 2019–2020 season. 2020–2023 – Reaktor goaltending coach.). There was a great post–game speech in the locker room. I have not seen this in a long time. I am happy that we showed our character and won this game. I think that we are on the right way. Congratulations to all the fans on this victory!

– Was it a hard decision to choose Kislitsyn as a starting goalie?

– He is in a good shape. During practices with the team, Anton proved that he is ready.

– Is it possible that Anton will be a starting goalie for the next game?

– Why not? Everyone has a chance!

– Poryadin had a good game.

– Sure. We are happy for Pasha. He is the leader. We have a lot of leaders; today Pasha played a high level hockey.

Vyacheslav Butsayev, the head coach of HC Vityaz:

– The opponent punished us for not executing the game task and lack of discipline. We did not do what we were supposed to. Congrats to our opponent on a victory.
