- It seemed as though it was a tough game for SKA.

- The opponents have a good team. Emotionally, it was a bit difficult after losing the previous game, but we tried to start the first period well and we scored a goal. Overall, we stuck to the game plan.

- Today's match was a physical one. Were Salavat stronger than in Ufa?

- Either of the teams could have won and taken three points. It's not surprisingly that the match turned out this way. Two good teams with good players met. Everyone fought for the puck.

- In terms of intensity, was this like an NHL match today?

- It was a really physical match, not all KHL matches are like this. There were a lot of shots and fights, so you could say it was a bit like an NHL game.

- How do you feel physically?

- Everything's fine, we are sticking to our program. The guys recover after games.

- Ak Bars lost by a large score in Yaroslavl. How will you prepare for the match?

- Nothing special. We will prepare just the same as we do for all matches. Teams are more dangerous after they have lost. We will focus.
