- On your t-shirt, the phrase "90% hard work. 10% talent" is written. Does it fit for this match?

- We are always working hard, not just today. It's difficult to break down the opponents' solid defence. It was tough to score against them in the KHL regular season too. It's good that our powerplay worked.

- Why only once?

- I don't know, we will look into this.

- Did Brandon Kozun and Andrei Loktionov cause SKA problems?

- Yes, of course they did. It's difficult to play against Lokomotiv.

- In the first period, did Lokomotiv start as you expected?

- I would say that, yes. They tried to play aggressively like always.

- This is the first time when SKA tallied a shutout in these KHL Gagarin Cup playoffs.

- Our goalkeeper and defence played well. However, Lokomotiv did have chances, which means we have to improve even further.
