HC Kunlun Red Star head coach Bobby Carpenter:
- Before the game started, we asked our team to play smart during the entire 60 minutes and give ourselves a chance to win the game. They did exactly that. They worked hard and competed intelligently. Until two minutes from the end, we had an opportunity to win the match. The goalkeeper played brilliantly. I am proud of my team.
HC SKA head coach Oleg Znarok:
- The opposing goalkeeper played well, but we had a lot of chances to score. We didn’t take advantage of our opportunities. The score could have been a lot bigger.
- Andrei Zubarev is ready to play. How is David Rundblad? He is on the injury list.
- David has a small injury, I don’t know when he will be ready. Andrei can already play.
