HC Jokerit Helsinki head coach Lauri Marjamaki:
- First of all, I congratulate SKA with their victory. It was a tough start for us after taking two penalties and conceding two goals. Nevertheless, we played excellently in the last 10 minutes of the first period and throughout the second frame. Unfortunately, with this being the concluding match of this away series, we found it tough towards the end and we had to score. This wasn't a good road trip, but now we will prepare for the next games.
HC SKA head coach Ilya Vorobyov:
- We expected Jokerit to play in a compact manner. This is a good team victory. The guys did a great job of sticking to the game plan.
- Nikita Gusev has 61 assists in the 2018/2019 KHL regular season.
- Of course this is a big event. We congratulated him in the dressing room directly after the game.
- Did Geoff Platt provoke Alexander Barabanov for their incident?
- Geoff Platt is Geoff Platt.
