HC SKA press-service

HC SKA head coach Oleg Znarok:

- It was actually a difficult game. The match could have gone either way, especially in the first period. After that, we simply played out the game. The opponents have a good team which has pace. Lokomotiv had more shots than us today, but we weren't worse at faceoffs than them. However, they had more attempts on goal and blocked shots than us. We move on.

- Will SKA win all KHL regular season games?

- Next question.

- Why did you put Sergei Plotnikov in the first line ahead of Alexander Barabanov?

- We decided to change something.

- Nikita Gusev scored four goals. Will he be given a bonus?

- We simply applauded him.

HC Lokomotiv Yaroslavl head coach Alexei Kudashov:

- We do well at the start of matches, but when someone makes a mistake, the team freezes. The players then try to correct the situation, but when we concede another goal, they fall apart again. Like Oleg Znarok said, we had chances to extend the lead, but we couldn't score. We have to get through this situation.

Lokomotiv - SKA. Press-conference

- Lokomotiv have recently lost two games 1:6. What's going wrong?

- Next question.

- In the first period, did Lokomotiv find it tough psychologically?

- We didn't track back enough for SKA's first goal, however Ilya Kovalchuk's shot was too good when SKA scored their second. Who made Yegor Korshkov lose the puck? When you play against such strong opponents, the smallest details make the difference.

- Andrei Kozyrev wasn't here today. Why?

- He was sacked.
