Voting after the match:
Roman Stantien, Slovan coach: “We had a great start, we created an opportunity, but the opponent was kept in the game by goalkeeper Sedláček until the third period. We broke it. Gašpar’s beautiful goal proved to be important after Sersen’s pass in game 4 to 4. The Košice team then threatened to break, but we were already guarding it in the back, thanks to goalkeeper Durny, who grabbed a few chances. In the third period we added three goals, Cam Lee scored twice after a nice individual action and it was definitely. “
Jan Šťastný, coach Košice: “We knew that if we wanted to think about points, we had to withstand the initial pressure from Slovan. He used to have great starts. We stuck to this goal, the opponent worked out a few chances, but Sedláček caught them in the middle of the game. However, we forgot to defend and the opponent took advantage of it. In the third period we wanted to score a goal, unfortunately we did not take advantage of the few chances we created. We made a fatal mistake on the second collected goal, the opponent penalized it We are so vulnerable that when he gets two goals, we can’t do anything about it, in the end we just adjust the result cosmetically, we can’t, we need a good striker, maybe a Canadian, the Slav decided today. with experience and rightly won.
