HC SKA forward Pavel Kukshtel:
- We have a bitter taste in our mouth after this match, we wasted a lot of opportunities to score today.
- This match was very similar to the games against Dynamo Moscow during the regular season.
- They were different matches. We lost today because we didn't use our chances, but the series is only just starting.
- What needs to be done in order for SKA to achieve success?
- We now need to rest and prepare psychologically for the second game. Everything will be fine.
