For the second time in its history, Metallurg Magnitogorsk has won the continent’s main trophy — the Gagarin Cup! In the decisive, seventh battle in Moscow, the ‘magnets’ beat the capital’s CSKA 3:1 and won the series 4:3!!!!
The Gazprom Neft Cup congratulates the players, coaches, managers, and fans of Metallurg Magnitogorsk on winning the Gagarin Cup! The fascinating stand-off with Moscow’s CSKA lasted the maximum of seven games. Both sides demonstrated that their presence in the final was no chance matter. Even so, here, at the end of an exhausting road, it was the ‘magnet team’ that proved the stronger. We believe that the young hockey players from the Metallurg-2005 and CSKA-2005 teams will follow the example of their older comrades and demonstrate their best qualities during the Gazprom Neft Cup international tournament!
