“We already had confidence in the goalkeeper, Reideborn played like Tretiak” – Fedorov

The head coach CSKA Sergei Fedorov noted goalkeeper play Adam Reidborn who saved 35 shots in a winning match with “Locomotive” (2:0) in the first match of the second round of the Gagarin Cup.

Lokomotiv managed almost three times as many shots on CSKA’s goal (35-13), while the army team scored two goals and won.

– Only the lazy did not “trample” CSKA goalkeepers, who did not show reliable hockey in the first round of the Gagarin Cup. But now we have seen Adam Reideborn playing as Tretiak. Will it add confidence to your goalkeepers?

– We already trusted the goalkeeper, because Reideborn, as you said, played like Tretiak. What will happen next is hard to predict. We did the right thing, helping Adam feel like he belonged in certain situations. And we wanted to close certain shooting angles from our opponent. And that not only gave us confidence in our actions, but we always knew in principle that Adam could do it.

Yes, the Guardian is a key character. The last on the red line. But there are five hockey players in front of him. And we’ve been working on that all season, preparing our guys. We just played a little better. The opponent was pressing, they had the initiative. However, we knew perfectly well how to operate without the puck. It’s a great advantage. And here we are talking about defense, – the correspondent quotes Fedorov.

Sweden’s Reideborn, 31, in this playoff saves 91.2% of shots. He conceded 13 goals on 147 shots, and the “cracker” was his first in the current playoffs.
