Post: Lokomotiv forward evaluated the team’s performance


Shalunov: Lokomotiv scored a lot of points, we will improve in every component

MOSCOW, October 5 – RIA Novosti, Andrey Senchenko. Lokomotiv Yaroslavl’s striker Maxim Shalunov told RIA Novosti after the victory against Dynamo Moscow that the railway workers have the opportunity to advance further, while also drawing attention to the team’s performance.

The regular championship match of the Continental Hockey League (KHL), held in Moscow on Wednesday, ended with the victory of the guests with a score of 5:2. Lokomotiv is the leader in the Western Conference with 22 points after 14 matches in which it scored 42 goals. In terms of goals, the railway workers are behind Spartak Moscow (52 goals), the capital’s Dynamo (48), Metallurg Magnitogorsk (46), CSKA (44) and Sochi (43) in the entire league.

“Lokomotiv” and “Dinamo” are good and big teams that do not want to lose. That’s why our head-to-head matches are regularly so emotional. I agree with coach Igor Nikitin, who said that after the victory over Spartak he did not look at the standings and did not know that Lokomotiv was the leader in the West. I don’t look at the table either. I can only look at the end of the regular season to figure out who we might go to in the first round of the playoffs. We have a very large reserve. I am 100 percent sure that we can improve in every component. As for the public opinion that our team supposedly plays hard and pays more attention to defense, it is good that some journalists keep statistics and see that Lokomotiv scores a lot of goals. Answer to the haters… Public relations is public relations and it doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad. If Lokomotiv is being discussed, it’s a good thing,” said Shalunov.
