The Sibir goalkeeper ran two kilometers to the arena due to traffic jams in order to attend the match with Spartak.

Goalie “Siberia” Anton Krasotkin was forced to leave the car on the road due to traffic jams and run a few kilometers to the stadium in order to attend the KHL match with “Spartacus” said the head coach of the Novosibirsk team David Nemirovsky.

On Thursday, “Sibir” won a voluntary victory against “Spartak” on their ice with a score of 4:3 in the Fonbet KHL championship match. Krasotkin stopped 33 shots.

— Today, due to traffic jams in Novosibirsk, Beck was unable to attend the start of the warm-up. Has this affected his game in any way? Considering that on his first shift he received minus one?

“We had a lot of people late today because of that.” He didn’t show it. I believe in being careful on the road. There was a serious accident on the bridge: someone walked in the opposite direction. It is important not to rush through life, to drive correctly – not to try to get there a few minutes faster. Otherwise, moments like this happen. I think our hockey players understand that. And everyone needs to understand that this is not a joke. The car is no joke. There is no need to take risks to arrive faster. Thus, the hockey players are not responsible for their delay. The main thing is that we have time for the match.

— Knowing that Krasotkin struggled to get into the game today, is there a plan for the next game to give Kostin a chance?

— It might have been difficult for Krasotkin to enter the game due to traffic jams. He hit it, got out of the car and ran for two kilometers. Maybe I was a little tired before the match. We planned Kostin for the trip, but there he suffered a micro-injury and couldn’t even dress for the match. He has recovered, we will think about him for the next matches,” Nemirovsky said according to the press service of “Sibir”.
