Psychology also had an impact. We showed our system in the third period, we conceded good goals. Rotenberg told reporters, “We did more, but the opponent’s goalkeeper played great. Good lesson for us. We understand what we need to beat systemic teams like CSKA. First of all, we’re going to fix our own mistakes and that’s what we’re going to do.”

Breaking the blockade is 80 years old. Therefore, we must be able to show our best hockey in a stressful situation. This is a very serious test for everyone. There will be conclusions, including the players, because you always want more. Wait , you believe.

And we saw what we saw. We will work on the app because we scored some goals today. Two – not enough, I had to score five goals in this game.”
