After the game, the president of the ice hockey department in Brasov, Emilian Cernica, declared: “ a surprising game. I was aware that it was going to be a rough match for two reasons: first of all, Galati has a good team and had two good games with Gheorgheni. On the other hand, let’s not forget that we had only one day off after 11 of our players returned from Latvia where they had give their best for the national team, so the probability that they were going to be pretty tired was obvious. I was actually surprised by the week performance of the imports who were supposed to fly on the ice. Unfortunately, Tendler and Lidhammar were for me totally disappointing.”
