Alexei Tertyshny: 5-on-3 play was the key moment.
Traktor vs Ak Bars post-game press conference.
"The game was tough, it was literally till scoring a goal. Unfortunately, we got penalties, there were only three of our player on ice and Traktor scored. We didn`t manage to score as our opponent was good in defense." - says the Ak Bars head coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov.
"The game turned out ot be hard. Probably the powerplay was the key moment. Our opponent played well on the penalty kill, our special team acted convincingly as well. We were lucky on 5-on-3 play and scored a goal. We knew that Ak Bars would be more active in the ending, so we focused on defense. The opponent had some really good moments. That`s why I`d like to thank our goalie who helped us today. Congratulations on the win to the players and fans," - comments the Traktor acting head coach Alexei Tertyshny.All news
