The White Tigers were leading 3:2 half a minute before the end, but the East Bohemians forced overtime in the power play 28 seconds before the end. In it, Hrenák made a great save against Hyka’s 100% chance. And during separate raids he caught Paulović, Hyka again, Radil and Říčka.
“I’m very happy that it worked out. After all, raids are such a lottery. The boys scored two goals, which also helped me. It’s great that it worked out,” enjoyed the Slovakian goalkeeper, who corrected Friday’s stumble, when Karlovy Vary took advantage of his mistake and scored the winning goal.
“There was an unlucky situation with the goal at 3:2, but he got knocked out of it, put it behind him and against Pardubice he held us up in a lot of moments,” forward Michal Bulíř, who scored the first goal of the season with Dynamo, said of the 25-year-old goalkeeper. “I want to praise the whole team, the boys in all lines played a great game supported by an excellent goalkeeper,” commented assistant coach Jiří Kudrna.
How hard was Friday’s fumble and the five goals conceded to put behind you? “Of course it’s challenging, but every new day the sun comes out again, the next day we can’t do anything about it. After a match like this, the most important thing is our reaction and I think we reacted in the right way,” said Hrenák, who has so far caught five matches for the White Tigers with a success rate of just under 89 percent. He improved his statistics with Dynamo.
“Many of us needed such a match against such a quality team as Pardubice. I think it was one of the best performances this season, not only from my point of view, but also from the whole team’s point of view. Now it will be very important that we bounce back from such a performance, be more consistent and improve with each match,” noted Hrenák, who scored against Sedlák et al. 35 successful hits.

“Pardubice are a very good opponent, we all know this. On the other hand, I think we also put in a very good performance. I will only repeat myself, but it will be very important that we play as many matches as possible,” said Hrenák.
So far, the Liberec hockey players have only collected points at their home rink, they have lost every time outside. “We have to play away as well as at home, follow the system and then we will collect points away,” believes Hrenák. The North Bohemians now play three times away, first in České Budějovice, on the ice of Sparta and Vítkovice.
