- How is the mood before taking on Jokerit?

- They will want to make up for their defeat against us away, and at home they will be a completely different team. It will be a hard, physical game, and we are pumped up.

- What tactics are needed to defeat the Finns?

- We know that they are a mobile team, they skate well, are good with the puck and score a lot on the powerplay. No penalties can be taken, and pressure needs to be put on their defencemen just like we managed to do in Saint Petersburg. If we do that, they will make mistakes and we'll have chances to score goals.

- Is it hard to play in Helsinki with the Jokerit fans?

- When it's a sold out arena and the atmosphere is good, it's always nice to play.
