HC SKA head coach Oleg Znarok:
- You can't win matches with only one goal. We had chances which we needed to take advantage of.
- What happened to the team at the start of the third period?
- It's not nice when you concede a couple of goals in two minutes. However, I think that we should have been on the powerplay, not a 4 on 4.
- Patrick Thoresen was hit by Mikhail Pashnin.
- This is ice hockey.
HC CSKA Moscow head coach Igor Nikitin:
- It was a tough match, we got lucky in some incidents. We tried hard and scored on our opportunities.
- Vladimir Zharkov and Sergei Shumakov returned to the line-up.
- They did everything possible today. These players showed the rest how to play with character.
- Were you wondering whether to play Lars Johansson or Ilya Sorokin between the pipes?
