- This game was tougher than against Slovan Bratislava.

- Yes, it was. We didn't have a lot of the puck in the second period, allowing Jokerit to own the initiative. Possession was lost all over the ice. Nevertheless, it's good that we improved in the third period and increased our commitment by blocking more shots. We tried to play in their zone, take more shots and test their goaltender.

- You blocked some hard pucks.

- It's part of the game. All of the guys blocked shots when they had the opportunity. We did a good job.

- How do you feel playing in your line?

- It was difficult at first and a bit confusing. However, the coach told us to calm down. Sergei Shirokov scored a goal.

- Do the team's leading players have special instructions to score?

- Everyone has their own job. It's good that our leaders are scoring.
