— I want to really thank the fans for their support and also apologize to them as well. Today there was a packed house, they really supported us, but I'm sure that they couldn't have expected that kind of a result. With injuries to Kulagin and Valiev, we were weaker on defense. Losing two out of the starting five, for us that loss is pretty significant. The guys who were coming off the bench, have only just recently made the transition from the youth leagues and so it's tough for them to play with one of the best European teams for the time being.
