HC SKA forward Emil Galimov:
- How do you feel ahead of the semi-finals of the Gagarin Cup playoffs?
- SKA versus CSKA is a classic match-up, we're ready. We've had time to rest, and now we are looking forward to a fun series. It will be interesting for us and the fans.
- SKA will start on the road in Moscow. Does this hold any meaning?
- No. Of course, it's nice to play in front of our own supporters, but it's not a big deal that the series will begin away from home.
- What can you say about CSKA Moscow?
- CSKA have a good team, a lot of their players represent the Russian national team. They have a high-quality team, but we're ready for this. The strongest team will win.
