Mikhail Grigorenko: The main statistic is the score on the scoreboard

The author of the winning goal in the match with Lokomotiv summed up the results of the game.

— They continued to work, yes, the first period was left to them. In the second period, a mistake led to their second goal. We scored on time, equalized the score. It turned out to be a good, fighting victory.  

— Did Lokomotiv start to get a little lost when CSKA seized the initiative? 

— So it happened, we waited for our chances and performed. The skill affected, perhaps.  

— Is it unusual to make not so many throw? Or are there no problems in this regard? 

— So it turns out that Lokomotiv defends well. The most important statistic is the score on the scoreboard, the rest is not important. 

— Lokomotiv outshoots at the very beginning. What is the reason for this? 

— Lokomotiv is a good team. They come out loaded, they throw. We try to take the middle, and give them the perimeter. We try to make it easier for Adam to make his saves. 

— Did two quick goals give you confidence? 

— Of course, it gives confidence. It's a huge difference to go to the third period with the score 0:2 or 2:2. We scored on time, turned the course of the game around, and fought back. There were a lot of short-handed play today, we fought back.
