Interim HC Spartak Moscow head coach Alexei Yarushkin:
- Having not won for a long time, we have positive emotions. The guys did well, they played for the team.
- Do you agree with the opinion that Spartak played two of the best season games against SKA?
- Maybe they were among the best, yes. The fact that I know SKA well didn't have any bearing. It's motivation for our guys to play against a strong opponent like SKA.
HC SKA head coach Oleg Znarok:
- We wanted to win this game. Not a lot when our way, including special teams. I think that the result is fair.
- Igor Shestyorkin and Yegor Rykov didn't put on their best performances. Why?
- I wouldn't say that Igor played badly, he actually performed fine. Both prepared for this game.
- Why do matches after training camps not go well?
- The guys were put under major strain, we're preparing for the playoffs. Nevertheless, we should always play to win.
