HC Avangard Omsk head coach Andrei Skabelka:
- It was a good match. As it's usually said nowadays, the quality on special teams decided the outcome. SKA scored twice on the powerplay, whereas we didn't score once. We did well when at equal strength, but you don't get points for performing well. We're disappointed. We will prepare for the next match, I congratulate SKA with their victory.
HC SKA head coach Oleg Znarok:
- It was a good, even game. The powerplay made the difference today, and we did well on the penalty kill. However, we conceded a poor second goal. Overall, everything's fine.
