Hockey player “Metallurg” Lipsik expects to face “Ak Bars” in the Gagarin Cup playoffs

KAZAN, December 28 – RIA Novosti, Vadim Kuznetsov. Metallurg Magnitogorsk hockey player Brendan Leipsik told RIA Novosti he expects to face Ak Bars Kazan in the KHL playoffs.

“Metallurg” defeated “Ak Bars” in the regular season match with a score of 4:2. If the KHL playoffs started tomorrow, the teams would have met in the first round.

“It doesn’t matter who we play in the first round. I think we will face Ak Bars at some stage of the tournament anyway. Today was a playoff level match. Both teams pushed each other to give their best. We were lucky. We lost Kazan in overtime in the fall, but today the win was ours. We are happy with this result,” he said.

In the third quarter, Laypsik pushed Ak Bar striker Alexander Radulov aboard and was sacked.

“As I said, no one wanted to make concessions in this match. We fought on the board, I got the suspension that should have been avoided. Fortunately everything turned out in our favor,” said the Metallurg player.
