HC Spartak Moscow head coach Vadim Epanchintsev:
- I would like to say thank you for today's atmosphere, it's always nice to play in front of such fans. I an grateful to my team for the fact that everyone worked as a united unit in all situations. We knew the opponent's strengths, we played well on special teams, especially when on the penalty kill. We didn't allow the opposing team to create chances. We have one more game before the break, we will prepare for it.
HC SKA head coach Oleg Znarok:
- My colleague said everything correctly. Spartak were more lively, they were faster than us. The fact that we didn't score on the powerplay took its toll. We will prepare for the next game.
- Ilya Kovalchuk went to the dressing room during this game. How is he?
- He has a small injury, we tried to him painkillers, but he couldn't keep playing until the end of the match.
