Apart from the first period, Slovan did very well.
The HC Slovan Bratislava players took home 3 points from their last night's home game win, beating HC Sochi 4-1. The Blueshirts took control of the ice from the second period onward and the fans didn't leave the area unhappy.
"We kind of fell asleep during the first period and didn't play like we wanted. Then we started working hard and scored some goals, although we didn't fire as many shots as we did during the previous game. We need to get in the crease because that's where the goals are being scored from. We scored three goals from the crease tonight," commented the game strategy Slovan's captain Andrej Meszároš.
The Blueshirts are off on a four-game trip now. The win against Sochi was a good sign: "It's nice that we ended our home game series with a win. We're off on a trip soon where we will play quite difficult games every other day. I believe that we will bring some points back home with us."
