- You have now scored in two consecutive KHL matches.

- The coaches trust me and I am enjoying playing.

- Last season, Dinamo Minsk twice beat SKA, but it's the complete opposite this year.

- Given that we had such a difficult away match against Dinamo Minsk, we prepared for a tough game today. You can saw that we managed to capitalise on all of our opportunities. However, in defence, we committed a lot of mistakes and we have to improve.

- What happened when SKA conceded?

- During the entire game, they attacked dangerously, they had threatening counterattacks and they hit the crossbar in the first period. Igor Shestyorkin made a lot of important saves and we have to improve ahead of the KHL Gagarin Cup playoffs.

- Did you not realise that players get penalties for throwing sticks?

- I didn't have the intention of doing that. I stepped on the stick, I then moved it in order to keep my balance, but I was given a penalty. It was a coincidence.

- The Leningrad Blockade veterans were greeted at the Ice Palace and then SKA immediately scored.

- For us, it's very important to see them at the arena. Every January we play for them. The main thing is that their achievement is always remembered. We always try to give our best in every match.
