Oleg Leontyev: «It was a hard-battled game»
Neftekhimik head coach Oleg Leontyev speaks with the media after a following 1–2 loss against Avtomobilist.– That was a game for the playoffs spot. It was a hard-battled game. At the beginning the opponent had an advantage, after that, we had the advantage. In the third period we could change the score in our favor. Unfortunately, we got two penalties.
– Filipp Dolganov had another one solid game. Do you think Filipp will be starting goaltender for the rest of the season?
– Anything is possible with the way he is playing now. We also have Nikolayev and Tikhomirov.
– Why did the team lose this game?
– We got penalties and did not take advantage of goal-scoring chances we had. Especially in the third period.
