Press conference «Torpedo-Neftekhimik».

Oleg Leontyev, the head coach of HC Neftekhimik:
- We conceded a quick goal. After that we tied the game and in the second period… it was kind of mystery. Our opponent scored 5 goals in a 6-minute span. We will not give up, we will prepare for the upcoming game.
- Could you explain why this mystery happened in the second period?
- Torpedo is a good team, they have good foreigners. Sometimes games like this happens.

- Perhaps, it could be better to take a timeout when the score was 3-1?
- We took it.

- Alexander Sudnitsin played his third game with try-out contract. Did this game change the opinion about Alexander?
- We have made the decision before this game. We will sign him. In the third period he made big saves. We are sure, that he will be in a better shape and will help us.

- What about Dan Sexton?
- It was not his best game, but he had good games. We hope that he will help us too.

- Is there any possibility to sign one more foreign player?
- Right now we do not have any offers.

- Neftekhimik changed its goalie twice. Was it a mistake?
- I thought that we should not make a change, but we decided to make it. It is what it is.

- Is there something in common with the game against Severstal when the team tied the game after 1-5?
- We remember that game. We managed to tie the game. Today we did not tie the game. It is better not to have to tie games.

- Could you rate Maxim Berezin’ performance?
-  Berezin is experienced player. There ups and downs during the season. Maxim is our Top 6 D-man and he will play.

David Nemirovsky, the head coach of HC Torpedo:
- We had a good game, except last 5 minutes. The guys played well. We worked hard and it is possible to notice that we play better and better. Our team will have not easy road games. We are getting ready for it.
