Nadezhda Morozova and Elena Dergachyova speak about the exhibition game against Amur-2003

Russia W goalkeeper Nadezhda Morozova:

- All of the guys fought hard and supported one another. Everyone knows that this period is tough, but it's very important. We have to be patient with ourselves. It was a tough game, because we have trained a lot recently - we skated twice yesterday before a morning skate today. Amur-2003 have players which can shoot the puck well. Nevertheless, we managed to play well. There is time to fix our mistakes ahead of the Olympic Games. Our powerplay should improve, the girls don't shoot enough. We're working on this every day at training.

Russia W forward Elena Dergachyova:

- Not everything went to plan. However, we used our scoring opportunities, while the boys team didn't take advantage of their chances. We have a lot of things to improve on. On special teams, we have to score more goals. The opponents were faster than us and handled the puck with their sticks a bit better. I managed to score a goal, thank you to my teammates for the pass.
