Mikhail Sergachyov: "It was a good, defensive game"

Defenseman Mikhail Sergachyov thought it was a tight match against the Czech Republic at the 2019 IIHF World Championship group stage:

- We had problems as we lost the puck trying to play in a beautiful manner. Overall, it was a good, defensive game. We scored on our opportunities. The Czechs have stars in their team alongside promising, talented young players. Do I play more here than with Tampa Bay? No, I have an ice-time average of 18:30 in the NHL. Of course, I would like to score, but it's better to dish out a pass when you see an open teammate at the far post. I hope we will beat Italy.
