Dynamo Moscow vs. Traktor 2:0. Press-conference after the match

Valery Belousov, Traktor’s head coach:
Congratulations to Dynamo on the victory. We had a decent start of the game, but could not convert our chances. Our opponents regrouped in the second period, and we could not match them after that. As for Kuznetsov – yes, he and I often argue on the bench, but that’s a part of the game. However, he sometimes forgets what I want him to do on the ice. He has to grow up and help his team even more than he does now. Besides that, Kostitsyn was absent tonight due to a minor cold.

Oleg Znarok, Dynamo’s head coach:
A tough win for us tonight. We began the match cautiously, but then gained momentum and put the game away. I can’t tell anything about Janne Jalasvaara and when he is going to be back; he still hasn’t appeared in our training camp. We also have a tough time with our roster because there’s a flu epidemic going on, several guys are ill.
