Oleg Leontyev, the head coach of HC Neftekhimik:
- It was important for both teams to win today. In the second period the opponent did its best but Sasha (Alexander) Sudnitsin kept us in the game. He played well. In the third period it was clear that whoever scores first – wins this game. In my opinion Shootout is not a lottery, it is about skill. I would like to congratulate the team and all the fans on this victory. We will prepare for upcoming game.
