— Igor Larionov is not just a coach, but a mentor for the guys? Can you say that?

“He only wants the best for us.” Igor Nikolaevich is our head coach and wants us all to play at a high level. This is why, for example, sugar is banned in our locker room.

Larionov is like a second father to me. Gives very practical advice that you should listen to and follow. It’s not like riding on rails. On the contrary, our hands are free. We are told that we have to enjoy the game. That’s what we do.

What can I say ? Go to YouTube and watch Larionov’s matches, how he played for the USSR national team and for Detroit when the “Russian Five” thundered there. The way they moved the puck there was awesome to watch! This way you spend less effort and the hockey turns out to be more spectacular,” Firstov told .

Torpedo leads the Western Conference standings. In 10 matches, Nizhny Novgorod scored 17 points.
