CSKA coach Fedorov: There was no thought to give advantage to Lokomotiv
MOSCOW, March 17 – RIA Novosti, Andrey Senchenko. The head coach of Moscow CSKA, Sergei Fedorov, admitted that the high pressure from the Yaroslavl “Locomotive” in the first match of the Gagarin Cup 1/4 final series was a coincidence.
The match, which took place in Moscow on Friday, ended with a score of 2-0 in favor of the “red-blues”. The second match of the series will be played on March 19 in the capital.

“Our team understood the previous experience of the series, we “rolled” all the necessary moments again. I can’t say that Lokomotiv showed airless hockey. You can’t imagine how aggressive and clear hockey the opponent played. Their bastions were difficult to overcome. “Lokomotiv” does not play defensively, they shoot the puck deep into the zone with their initiative “They move the puck forward with pressure, there were many combinations of them going into the area. We’re ready for that,” he added.
