- In the end, you did manage to defeat Barys.

- It was a tough match, to be honest. We made a lot of mistakes. Thank you to Magnus Hellberg for keeping us in the game, we didn't play with concentration in defence. Nevertheless, we spoke to each other ahead of the third period, and we subsequently took advantage of our opportunities to win.

- What did the coaches say after conceded two quick goals in the second period?

- They told us to stop making complicated plays in our own zone. Barys pinned us in our zone, but instead of playing in a simple manner, we decided to start passing the puck. They punished us for our mistakes.

- Was this one of your best goals of your career?

- It was a regular goal. Of course, I did add a different finish. Recently, I saw how my friend Nikita Korostylev scored a goal like this, so I decided to do the same. I was given a great pass by Jarno Koskirata.

- Was it more luck or skill?

- I am a professional ice hockey player. I was clean through, the puck sat up well, and I decided to shoot the way I did.

- Henrik Karlsson let the first shot he faced go in.

- Nail Yakupov unleashed a great shot. When a goalkeeper joins the game, he always becomes nervous if he concedes a goal immediately. We needed to crash the net confidently.
