HC SKA head coach Ilya Vorobyov:
- I would like to thank our fans, there is a group from Saint Petersburg undertaking this road trip with us. In the first period we warmed into the game, but we improved and managed to win.
- This season, both matches against Amur Khabarovsk have been won in the final minutes. Why is it so difficult against them?
- They play excellent defence and block a lot of shots.
HC Amur Khabarovsk head coach Nikolai Borschevskiy:
- We played against a very strong opponent. The guys gave their all, I don't have any questions for them. In order to win, we needed to take advantage of the opportunities which came our way in the first two periods. Our discipline let us down. When playing SKA, you simply can't take penalties. Their powerplay is excellent and we paid for our mistakes. Nevertheless, the players fought hard, and I would like to wish our dedicated fans a Happy New Year. Thank you for the support.
- Why was there a problem with discipline? Was this emotions or a lack of concentration?
- It was emotions, because our concentration was high. The guys burned with desire to show their potential. When playing against such an opponent, you always want to display your best qualities.
