- It was an even match during the first two periods, but we played great in the third frame. After the two goals, it became easier to play our game. When we scored on the powerplay to make it 3:0, the result became clear. Everyone fought until the end and stuck to the coach's game plan. It's a good victory.

- When you scored the first goal, did you expect the puck to appear on the crease?

- Our task is to play aggressively against the opposing defensemen. The puck came to me, I shot and it went in. It was an awkward shot for me, but the goalkeeper was in a tough position too. It's great that we scored.

- The powerplay didn't work so well today.

- We scored one goal on the man advantage. It was the third goal, which decided the game's outcome.

- Do you feel in a festive mood? Did you wish the foreign players a Happy Christmas?

- Their Christmas was yesterday, we don't have any Americans in our team. I don't feel a festive mood, we have two more matches to play this year. Avtomobilist play well in Yekaterinburg, while we need to take revenge against Dinamo Minsk for losing at home. After that game, we will celebrate New Year.

- Did you think about last season's Gagarin Cup final?

- The new final is approaching, we need to prepare for it. There isn't a lot of time before the regular season ends, we need to prepare for the playoffs because they will be difficult. We have all forgotten about last year's final.
