Interim SKA head coach Roman Rotenberg:
- I tip my hat to the players today. They stuck to the game plan and fought for each other throughout the entire 60 minutes. Our powerplay worked, the players blocked pucks and improved their movement. The fact that we had enough energy for the full match is great news for us, our physical state is good now. Of course, we understand the importance of the next game, so our thoughts are focused on that. I thank our fans for the support, while also thanking our players for being patient and showing the type of ice hockey which we want to see. We competed in the correct manner today.
