“SKA has crazy potential, but we have had a lot of serious injuries” – Rotenberg

SKA has crazy potential, but the team’s hockey players suffered a lot of serious injuries in the playoffs KHL said the head coach of the St. Petersburg club Romain Rotenberg .

On Monday, SKA lost at home to Avtomobilist with a score of 4:5 and was eliminated from the Gagarin Cup in the second round. The score in the series up to four victories is 4-1 in favor of Avtomobilist.

— The first half didn’t work, but we went into the second half well, scored some good goals and dominated. Then we made several mistakes. This is the result today. I want to thank my opponent for the series. I want to thank the fans for the season, they supported us. It turned out that in the first series we lost a lot of players. Today, a lot of guys were playing with broken bones and other serious injuries. We made the most of what we had. We could have ended the series with a victory, but we draw conclusions.

The team has crazy potential. If we had been fully equipped for combat, everything would have happened differently. There were a lot of brilliant moments and good matches. I want to thank everyone for the season. It was a tough journey to the arena. We are like soldiers, we were told to move, we moved. This also affected the outcome of the season. It made our job more difficult, but it was an experience.

— Why did key teams quit so early in these playoffs? Are crossover playoffs to blame for this?

— It is difficult for me to comment on this. But hockey is developing, hockey is progressing, the competition. We took a step back this season. We wanted to take a step forward. But sometimes you take one step back, then two steps forward. This concerns our team. I don’t think it’s fair to comment on other teams. The cross-playoffs make everyone happy. This is a new development for hockey,” reports a correspondent, according to Rotenberg.
