Mikko Koskinen: "We are getting better everyday"

- How hard was this game for you personally?

- No not really, I think that today's game was easier than against Traktor. I faced more shots, and that's always easier for the goaltender. It was a really tough game against Traktor.

- Why are SKA only winning in overtime?

- We have stayed more disciplined now. A game takes 60 minutes and overtime, and our discipline has been paying off nicely.

- After Sergei Zubov joined, has it been easier to play with the defencemen? Do you feel that they have become more confident?

- Oh yes, every day they are becoming more organised. It's easier fro the defence, and especially for the goaltenders. Everyone is getting their confidence back, and we are getting better every day. That's very important, and Sergei is doing a great job here.

- How needed is this three day break before taking on HC Salavat Yulaev Ufa? Is the schedule its toll?

- Yes, it's been really heavy lately. I think that everyone really needs that day off tomorrow, and we're going to enjoy it. We will come back to practice on Tuesday, and the game is on Wednesday. We are ready for the game against Ufa.
