- Was this an easy win?

- There is no such thing as an easy win. The guys played well, and Mikko Koskinen made big saves at the right time. The opponents had dangerous counterattacks too.

- In the previous game, you were the 13th forward. However, today you were actually one of the main forwards in the fourth line.

- I still played a lot against Torpedo.

- Are you getting used to your role on SKA's team?

- Well, I'm already 19 years old, I need to get used to it. Some players make their debuts at 17 and play successfully.

- Have you got mutual understanding with your teammates?

- I'm the youngest player on the team, it doesn't matter who I play with.

- Can you go up to Pavel Datsyuk and tell him that he's made a bad play?

- No, that wouldn't be a good idea.

- How do you refer to some of the leading players?

- Pavel Valerevich and Ilya.

- What's the best advice that Pavel Datsyuk has given you?

- If I made a mistake in defence, he skates up to me and tells me what I could have done better. It's great that such fantastic players compete in our team.

- You got a stick to the face in the third period.

- These things happen, it's not a big deal. It's a shame that we couldn't score on that powerplay though.

- Do you feel the pressure because you haven't scored yet?

- Yes, I do a feel a bit of pressure. I also want to play more, but I understand that I will probably play less in this team. When I have a chance, I will score.
