Dmitry Kvartalnov: «It was a hard-fought match, we were lucky in overtime – good job»

Dmitry Kvartalnov, Ak Bars head coach, after the victory in the third match of the playoff series against Neftekhimik (Nizhnekamsk) (2:1 OT) noted that the game was not easy, and the team ran chances and achieved success in overtime.

 − Of course, it was a hard-fought match. That’s a pity that we didn't put away – Nizhnekamsk didn't have many chances in the third period, maybe one or two. And missed this attack- it’s sad. But we played two periods well, both teams had chances. I think that goalies did their best. In overtime, we were lucky – we pushed, pressured, we were afraid of a counterattack, this breakthrough. But we ran chances, good job.
