HC SKA head coach Oleg Znarok:
- I congratulate Sochi with their victory. It was a good game. I think that we are to blame ourselves, we needed to have the right mindset for this match.
- Did other pressing issues distract you?
- Everything is fine at home.
HC Sochi head coach Sergei Zubov:
- Luck was on our side. We caught the opponents out because it was their final away game on this road trip, physically we played at the same level. A lot of the guys played with both a lot of desire and a cool head. I wouldn't like to point anyone out, because the team deserved this win. Everyone tried and fought hard. They did a great job.
- Did the veterans or young players have a bigger effect?
- It was a mix. As I have already pointed out, all of the guys deserve praise.
- Stepan Starkov was given a lot of ice times. In one word, how can you describe his performance?
- Very good.
