- You scored a goal in your first match since returning to the side. How do you feel?

- Well, that's not the main thing. It's great that I'm playing again, and the guys did a fantastic job in what was a tough final match of this road trip. The first period against Lokomotiv was difficult, they always begin games with aggression and their team is full of young, hungry players who skate hard and pile the pressure on. Igor Shestyorkin was brilliant both in the opening frame and the entire match. In the second period, we woke up a little bit, and we took advantage of our opportunities. I am very happy that we are leaving here with the two points and that we won all of these away games.

- Ahead of the strong second period, what was said?

- Nothing new. We tried not to lose the puck when entering the opposing zone so that our defensemen could change shifts. We used our chances which came our way.

- On the powerplay, were you given the task of shooting?

- I've been doing this all season long, but on previous occasions, I've either hit the post or missed. Today, luck was on my side as a ricochet took the puck in. I always try to shoot when competing on the powerplay.

- Did Lokomotiv help you to win today?

- They're a great, young team with plenty of desire. Their head coach is known for his aggressive style of play. It's always difficult to play here.

- What will you do when you arrive home?

- I will sleep and spend time with my family. Hopefully, we will have a day off.
