The railway brought the series from the seventh game, but suffered a crushing defeat in Moscow 5:0. Yaroslavl mentor Igor Nikitin shared his emotions
“Good series. The final game did not go well for us. Let’s analyze and find out. I didn’t want to be in a chase…
Transferred to CSKA? If launches were counted as an asset! I think it was necessary to show skill. We conceded two quick goals. There were times when you could get back into the game, but skill and composure were not enough.
Why didn’t you bet on Chekhovich’s game today? When we determine the team, I believe in the guys, I believe in the team that goes to the game. It was my mistake that the wrong team was on the ice today.
Did it fail to wake up the leaders? The opponent is difficult. In the playoffs, the team does not always rely on the leaders.
Today’s score says that you shouldn’t be under any illusions that it’s worth leaving everything as it is. It needs to be cleaned. Do not look for the culprits, but rebuild the team.
Does the team need time to prepare both physically and mentally? I agree. Need time. But it is necessary to analyze what failed and with whom to go further.
We played with a rival that we respected, but we wanted to beat them. We sincerely wish CSKA good luck.”
