MOSCOW, 8 November. /TASS/. Youth national team of Russia on hockey lost to team Hockey League Ontario (OHL) in the third match of the super Series due to fatigue and low implementation of the moments. This opinion was expressed by head coach of the Russian team Valery Bragin, quoted in a press-service of Federation of hockey of Russia.

In the night of Friday the youth national team of Russia lost to team OHL with the score 1:4.

“Having scored only one goal, is a question of implementation and level of skill, if the player has time and he doesn’t score, it means that something is missing in the final stage, that means we need to work and develop skills, – said Bragin. – Today we had fresh opponent, full of energy, we played two difficult games, was the fifth day of acclimatization. The guys felt that they heavy. The third game of the super Series – the difficult third game in four days, the opponent after the rest, but in this situation it is interesting to look at players.”

“Well, that managed to score, but at the end it changes nothing, the moments we had during the game, but they need to be implemented, – said Russia striker Vladislav Mikhailov. – In fact, we therefore lost that I failed to do this. I don’t think the result matches against the League of Quebec and at present possible to judge which of the canadian teams stronger. Match it so happened that we were not able to score more than one goal, so next we’ll be meaner, colder will relate to the moments.”

In the super Series, the Russian team played three games. In the first game, the Russian team won with the score 4:3 team principal of the Junior League of Quebec (QMJHL), in the second the Russians lost to the team QMJHL in overtime (3:4).
