Jarno Koskiranta: "You have to stick up for your teammates"

- Can you describe the moment when you scored?

- Sergei Kalinin played a good pass to Ilya Kablukov, we had a 2 on 1, I received a great assist and there was room in the five hole.

- Was it easier after scoring the second goal?

- It doesn't matter what the score is, we try to play our own game and keep the puck. However, in the third period CSKA pressed and we tried to keep the winning score intact.

- We don't often see you fighting. Why did you get into a brawl today?

- It was a bad hit from the opponent. I'm an ice hockey player, not a fighter, but sometimes you have to stand up for your teammates.

- It was a very physical match. Will this continue?

- Of course, these are the conference finals. Both teams want to qualify for the Gagarin Cup final, so it's a war out there.

- Were you frustrated with CSKA's play today?

- I can't say that CSKA make us angry, but sometimes it gets personal when they try to injure our players.

- Mikko Koskinen was excellent today.

- Mikko always steps up when it's needed.
