HC Ak Bars Kazan head coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov:
- I think that both teams played well. SKA and Ak Bars had desire to win, but we stuck to our game plans. I am pleased that the guys played as they needed to.
HC SKA head coach Oleg Znarok:
- I congratulate the opponents with their victory. I agree with my colleague, it was a good ice hockey match with lots of physical battles. It's probably the first really serious match this season. In overtime, there was a stupid error.
