HC SKA head coach Oleg Znarok:
- It was a good game against a strong opponent. We couldn't beat Ak Bars for two years before this match, we got lucky today.
- Why didn't Dinar Khafizullin play?
- He has a small injury.
- Before the game, it became known that the national team will compete at the Olympic Games.
- We didn't know about this during the match.
- Russia will play with the Olympic flag.
- In any case, Russia will play there.
HC Ak Bars Kazan head coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov:
- I also think that it was a good game. I think that the fans were happy with the match, both teams displayed great ice hockey. There's no point in talking about mistakes.
- What happened in the third period? Ak Bars had two powerplays, but didn't register any shots on goal.
- We were playing against a strong team which can attack and defend. Nothing happened.
- Mikhail Sidorov didn't play after making a mistake for the first goal.
- Mikhail is a young guy, he makes mistakes sometimes.
- Comment on Vasily Tokranov's play when Sergei Plotnikov scored.
- These things happen.
- Your opinion on the Olympic situation? Russia will play with the Olympic flag.
- The state's head has said that Russia can compete. The issue is settled.
