Tampa Bay Lightning Russian defender Mikhail Sergachev commented on the victory over the Washington Capitals in the NHL regular season (2-1 OT) match.
Sergachev distinguished himself with an abandoned puck in regulation time.
– Of course, it is difficult to play with them, so in order to score, it took a long distance from the blue line. This rarely happens. Their goalkeeper played well, they played tightly in defense, but we found an opportunity for a shot, and I scored, ”Sergachev said.
Recall that Alexander Ovechkin scored in the capital's club. This is the third goal of the Russian in the current season.
- Washington lost to Tampa in overtime, Ovechkin scored third goal of the season
