Marsel Sholokhov: Game against Slovan was hard

Traktor`s forward comments on the winning over Slovan, 3-0.

We had to win. When you win, you become more confident. I`d like to thank Vasya Demchenko, he helped us a lot today. We tried to help him in return. The game was really hard. 

The score on the table isn`t about what was on ice, is it?
It isn`t. It was really hard till the end if you didn`t notice.

What can you say about the line with Stoa and Kravtsov? It seemed that you felt differently in comparison to you playing in other lines.
While Kravtsov at the National team, I played with Stoa and Glinkin. I felt their hockey. It was great to play with them at the preseason. Now Stoa, Kravtsov and I tried to get as close to the opponent as possible. I think we played quite well though there were some mistakes. In general, we created some chances but we had to convert them.

Two home games against Metallurg Magnitogorsk and Avtomobilist Ekaterinburg are coming. The regular season starts with hard games, doesn`t it?
Two Ural derbies are coming. Suh games are always hard. We know each other really well so the games are expected to be interesting. We will play for the winning. That`s why I would like to ask all of the fans to come and support us!
