“Our guys are not cyborgs, but today they felt that they had a reserve” – Lokomotiv coach Nikitin about the victory over Dynamo

Head coach of Lokomotiv Igor Nikitin after the victory against Dynamo Moscow, he said that his hockey players found in themselves the necessary reserve to win back a match against a strong opponent.

On Sunday “Locomotive” defeated Dynamo Moscow on the road in a regular season match of the Fonbet KHL Championship with a score of 4:3 in a shootout. After the first half, Dynamo led 3:0, but lost the advantage.

— An important victory for us in terms of psychology. An unimportant start, everything was deserved, we lost the match. There is no need to talk about the majority of Dynamo, facing such a majority, we must do everything to control the rebounds, but we did not do it. Dynamo showed their game, but not us. For the rest, I can congratulate the guys, they were able to find constant effort which lasted two periods, overtime and penalties.

—Was there a serious conversation during the first break?

“We had a serious conversation before the premiere, but the guys just didn’t listen.” This is common to everyone, without exception. And our team has to get through this. I can’t say that we are cyborgs, but the guys felt that they could, that they had a reserve, that’s very important.

—Are you talking to Chalunov? He is not going through the best period.

-What do you mean? Like a man, he thanked the guys for giving him a chance. It happens to everyone, and the reaction is very important, the reaction of the team to this situation. “Max is an adult, he will gain useful experience,” reports the correspondent, according to Nikitin.
