Yugra vs. Traktor 2:1 (OT). Press-conference after the match

Valery Belousov, Traktor’s head coach:
Very interesting matchup tonight, very thick one, if you will, almost soccer-like. We salvaged a seemingly lost match, but unfortunately, still lost in overtime. I think Yugra deserved a win tonight; as far as Traktor goes, we are also satisfied with one point that we gained.

Sergey Shepelev, Yugra’s head coach:
My team was absolutely calm tonight; I believe they spent all their emotions in the previous matchup. Anyhow, my boys deserve a ton of credit for hanging on; at some point Traktor had us locked in our own zone, but we hung in there, and Lady Luck was on our side in the overtime. We had a great home series – five points in three games against the best teams in the East.
