Traktor vs. Metallurg 4:1. Press-conference after the match
Paul Maurice, Metallurg’s head
Congratulations to Traktor on tonight’s victory. The home team looked better throughout the match whereas Metallurg’s power play and shorthanded play left much to be desired.
Valery Belousov, Traktor’s head coach:
I am satisfied both with the result and performance. There was one thing that bothered me – too many penalties. We have to pay special attention to this aspect of the game, because the playoffs are looming large, and in the playoffs the opponents usually utilize opportunities like these very well.
Question to Belousov: Why did you choose Garnett over Fokin tonight?
Belousov: Vlad got a minor injury.
