SKA forward Maxim Karpov:

- How did the first Sochi Hockey Open match go?

- We won, so everything's positive.

- After tough training camps, how is the atmosphere within the team?

- It's better to play rather than train, but training camps are required. Nevertheless, it's nice that they're already behind us.

- Alexander Barabanov was fantastic today.

- Yes, he was great! It would be really good if we all scored four goals in a game.

SKA forward Alexander Barabanov:

- When was the last time when you scored four in one match?

- To be honest, I can't remember. It was probably during my childhood.

- Why did you play so well?

- We're tired after our training camps, but everything went my way. However, all players in my line have played together since last season and that helped us. The puck went into the net.
