- Was the second match against Avangard tougher than the first?

- Yes, it was a good game today. It was clear that both teams wanted to win, they tried to follow the game plan. The goalkeepers played well.

- What mindset did you have before the game?

- Emotionally, it was hard playing in Omsk. It was easier today. I simply wanted to win.

- Is it nice to beat your first club, or did you not think about that?

- Now, I'm not thinking about that. Each game is important, we needed to earn three points.

- People are saying that SKA lack tense games.

- It was a tense match today. It was a physical game, players fought for every puck, and both teams did everything in order to win.

- The next match is against Jokerit in Helsinki, an outdoor game. Are you afraid of getting cold?

- No, the weather will allow us to play. However, I can't imagine how it will be organised in reality.

- Have you played in outdoor games before?

- Four years ago, we played against Finland outdoors in the Euro Hockey Tour. It will be a fun, good game. Jokerit have a good team.

- Will you put on warm clothing under your jerseys?

- Hopefully, we'll be given warm items of clothing.
