HC SKA forward Anton Burdasov:
- In the 2014/2015 KHL campaign, SKA came back from 0-3 down to defeat CSKA Moscow in the Gagarin Cup playoffs. How can you repeat that success?
- We simply have to win the next match. That will give us emotions. After this game, we had a good talk with the guys in the dressing room, we have to continue working in a positive mood with belief that anything is possible.
- SKA were the better team in the first period, so what happened at the start of the second?
- In order to beat CSKA, you have to be better throughout the 60 minutes. We were poor during the opening seven minutes of the second stanza. Following that phase of the game, we did compete with more aggression.
- How can you beat this CSKA team?
- We have to earn the bounces and the rebounds. If God allows us to, we will turn the series around.
- CSKA played with a high line in the third period.
- We had to use our individual skills and played as a team to work around their system.
