- No, it only takes two good attacking moves to equalise.
HC SKA defenseman Danila Galenyuk:
- It was a good game. We stuck to the coach's game plan, scored on the powerplay, killed our penalties and won the match. The guys did a solid job.
- You participated in a fight during the second period.
- To be honest, I didn't expect a fight to begin. However, it gave our team a surge of positive emotions. We went on to score our third goal in that stanza.
