Head coach of Dynamo Alexei Kudashov said that the hockey players of the Moscow team, after a winning streak, begin to think that results in KHL matches can be achieved only through skill and without struggle.
“Dynamo” On Thursday, in overtime, they defeated Amur on the road in a KHL regular season match with a score of 2:1 in a shootout.
– Hard and tight game. The opponent is organized, defends very well, the public encourages them, the atmosphere is charged. We are therefore satisfied with two points. At first we played academically, we thought it would be an easy ride, but in the end it turned out to be a fighting game. There was an emphasis on the player part, but we also had to work, take neutral pucks. Clashes, martial arts… this aspect only appeared in the second period. We break this psychology when, after several victories, such an atmosphere is established that we can easily obtain results. On the contrary, after a series of victories, they get closer to you, everyone wants to beat you. This is what we are currently fighting against.
— Was it difficult for your opponent without a penalty?
– If your opponent is not rude, you must force him. He didn’t move well enough. The opponent played cleanly, there is nothing to complain about. But it’s our fault: we moved wrong. “We did not create any difficulties,” reports the correspondent of , according to Kudashov’s words.
