Kunlun is like an AHL club playing in Russia. There are serious differences between our teams” – striker Perevalov

Forward “Kunlun” Alexander Perevalov in a conversation with a correspondent, he explained why his team was beaten in a match with CSKA remembered his double in the previous meeting with the army team and told how the Chinese club is fundamentally different from ours.

On Wednesday, Kunlun lost to CSKA in the away match of KHL Championship Fonbet (1:5).

“Today we scored too many deletions,” Perevalov said. – For this reason, we gave the initiative to the opponent and could not recover.

– In the last match against CSKA, you managed to score a brace. How did you feel when you snatched victory from the KHL champion?

– I felt we performed a small miracle – we fought back from 1:4 at the very end. It was indescribable. Too bad it didn’t work out today. And I didn’t even think about the goals I scored for the champion. I even discovered a little later that China Day falls on this date.

– Did you take the puck as a souvenir?

– They gave it to me later – the first KHL goal.

— How do you feel in the Chinese team? How is it different from ours?

— Really different, and for me it’s a cool experience. It’s like an AHL club playing in Russia. In style and tactics, it’s a North American team. And she has the same mentality.

– How is the mentality different?

– Here the head coach of Lokomotiv Igor Nikitin says that the team must have the character of a champion, a winner. In “Kunlun” – the same, here the character of the champion is laid. Well, the most common thing is that in Russia a right-handed hockey player plays on the left, and in North America and Kunlun he plays on the right.

– Is the team’s cuisine Chinese?

– I’m not a big fan of her, more in Russian, in my mother’s kitchen. I can eat with chopsticks, but I prefer to use a fork.

Earlier, Kunlun handed the army team two losses in the current KHL championship – 2:1 OT and 5:4 bul. Perevalov scored twice late in the second game and then converted the decisive ball.
