Oleg Znarok: "I have great impressions from this match"
Russian head coach Oleg Znarok commented on the Euro Hockey Tour defeat to the Czech Republic:
- I have great impressions from this match, but it's a shame that we didn't win. The guys did a good job, fought hard, created a lot of chances but were a bit unlucky. Today I enjoyed how all lines played, and I liked that fact that the guys survived a number of blows especially in the second period. I would have wanted to play more on the powerplay, however the Czechs got away with some fouls.
