Růžička is surprised that he is the scoring leader of the hockey extra league, he also leads among the scorers
Třinec (Frýdecko-Místecko) – Martin Růžička scored two goals for the 6:2 victory of Třinec hockey players over Liberec, and with 18 hits he is the new top scorer. At the age of 37, the excellent gunner is also the most productive player of the current season (18+19). He scored both goals in the third period, and thanks to his shots, the Steelers jumped to 4:1 within 119 seconds.
Růžička admitted that he is surprised that he is the scorer leader of the Canadian extra league. “At my age… He’s nice, but I don’t care about him at all. I’m trying to help the team,” said Růžička to the journalists, from whom he heard a reminder that in the last match in Kladno, he could see the points being collected even at an advanced age. Jaromír Jágr contributed two assists to the Steelers’ loss at the age of 51. “But this is unique! One like this is born once in a while,” he added with a smile.
Třinec drew 1:1 with Liberec in the 40th minute, but Hudáček restored the lead to Steelers before heading to the booths. “That goal helped us a lot. Until then, he was so unremarkable. In the third period, we were thinking about practically everything we needed,” he stated.
Růžička admitted that he does not know how he scored the first goal. The basis was Doudera’s throw from the blue line, which Marcinko was still passing before the puck won over the lucky shooter. “I was driving and suddenly the puck is in the goal. I just saw the puck fly past the defender and somehow it bounced over me,” he described.
He scored the second goal in an atypical way as a member of the fourth formation. He replaced Kurovsky, who had problems with his skates. “They were shouting ‘wings, wings’ on the switchboard. I was right at the door, so I jumped in there. We had already recorded something with Dravec (Dravecký) in the past, and we immediately told each other on the switchboard that we were reminiscing about the old days. It turned out beautifully.”
In the second period, Růžička also impressed with his technical skills when he helped to place a protective partition on the Plexiglas near the switches. “Work of all kinds,” laughed Růžička. “I saw that nobody was going there, so we looked at how to fix it. Luckily it worked and we were able to continue playing,” he commented on the unusual activity.
The last round, Třinec lost to the last Kladno on the ice, and Růžička pointed out that they were also upset by the performance. “We didn’t play a good game there at all. We wanted to make up for it and skate,” said Růžička. “We scored six goals and we should always win. But there were moments in our game when we made mistakes. I keep telling myself we shouldn’t do them, but they keep happening. But overall, I don’t think we played a bad game. “
