- Apart from the fact that you lost, it was a fun game.

- We made a huge amount of defensive mistakes, and didn't stick together as we should have done.

- Your first goal was rather unusual, as you decided to take on a slap shot when away one on one.

- I simply wanted to.

- The two past matches have seen a lot of fans come to the stadium.

- We have been playing against strong teams, and just to add to it we are playing on small ice. We should play a lot more faster in defence, as we have top defencemen along with forwards who need to help out. There is no way that we should leave our goaltender out to dry.

- How tough was this Finnish training camp?

- Having spent nine days in Finland, I feel good. The guys are tired though, and haven't been home for a long time. It's good that we will now play in Saint Petersburg, and we have a good home tournament coming up.
