Lokomotiv defender Alexei Marchenko commented on the defeat from CSKA (1:4) in the fourth match of the 1/8 finals of the Gagarin Cup.
“It’s hard to talk about the results of such a match. Maybe we weren’t strong enough. Now you can say a lot of things, the result is known – 0-4. Therefore, you should not focus on the defeat in the first match. About any series, you can say that its course could be different. How will I rate the season? If you don’t win, then a bad season, ”the KHL website quotes Marchenko as saying.
