HC Dynamo Moscow head coach Vladimir Krikunov:
- We played well, but we probably left a lot of our energy in Ufa in the match against Salavat Yulaev. Today, we didn't have great movement, but we were in a winning position for a long time. However, unfortunately, our young players made a mistake before an error while changing shifts in overtime resulted in us losing this game.
- Dynamo seemed ready to match SKA.
- We are ready for anything, but it's hard to compete in six games over a nine-day period. You begin to lose energy. We were lacking this freshness today.
- Young defenseman Yegor Zaitsev took a cheap penalty in the third period which could have cost you the game.
- Sadly, this is not the first time when he has done this. We haven't had time to speak with him about this issue yet.
HC SKA head coach Alexei Kudashov:
- First of all, we are happy with the result today, we played against a strong, well-organised team. I liked our movement and, starting from the second period, we crashed the net excellently.
- The young players were vital for SKA today.
- We know when we need to give them a break. Today, they played really well. We will see how things go.
