HC Jokerit Helsinki head coach Lauri Marjamaki:
- We knew that we are capable of playing well in defence, and we achieved this today. I especially liked how we performed in the second period. Of course, it's nice to win in this concluding match before travelling home.
HC SKA head coach Valeri Bragin:
- It was an equal game. Both teams had chances, I believe that 1:1 was a fair score. Jokerit were stronger in the penalty shootout.
- Why did you put Kirill Marchenko, Ivan Morozov and Evgeny Ketov in the first line together?
- We finished the match on Saturday with this trio competing together. They played well today, even if they were on the ice for Jokerit's goal.
- You are continuing to experiment with your line-up.
- We already have some lines which are staying the same. We're searching for the optimal line-up.
- How will you use Malte Stromwall?
- Malte is a strong forward who scores goals, he's a member of the Swedish national team and played well last season for Sochi.
- Do you agree that both goalkeepers were excellent today?
- Yes, the teams did have opportunities, but the goaltenders were solid.
