HC SKA defenseman Lukas Bengtsson:
- It was a back and forth game in the first period, we had enough chances to score on the powerplay before they did. Moving forward in the series, we need to crash their net harder and press on their crease, that is where you score goals. We have to find ways to play through their system, they're excellent in the neutral zone and make it hard for us to begin attacks. We need to improve when in possession.
