Salavat Yulaev defender Zubarev: everyone is trying to lead to figure skating, but this is hockey
MOSCOW, 25 Nov – Olympic champion of Pyeongchang-2018, defender of the Ufa Salavat Yulaev, Andrei Zubarev, said that they are trying to make figure skating out of hockey, but so far there is still room for clashes in the game.
“Salavat Yulaev” on Thursday in Ufa is playing a regular KHL championship match against “Vityaz” near Moscow. Ufa are leading 1: 0 after the first period, during which there were several skirmishes in the game.
“I won’t say that we expected this from Vityaz. But this is hockey! I don’t know … Everyone is trying to bring us to figure skating, but it seems like it’s still hockey, so clashes are inevitable,” Zubarev said in a flash interview with the KHL TV in the first break.
