- Did you expect the match to be so difficult?

- We didn't start very well, we knew that Kunlun have a fast team with a lot of Canadians. It's good that we won and made the fans happy.

- What was lacking in the second period?

- Luck was on the goalkeeper's side. However, we were lacking quality too. When we don't score, we concede.

- Sergei Plotnikov scored two goals in Evgeny Dadonov's style.

- Evgeny Dadonov has his own style, but Sergei has his qualities too. Everyone plays differently. The guys did a good job.

- Severstal are fighting for a KHL Gagarin Cup playoff berth. What would you like to say?

- They are playing really well recently, they're already in the playoff zone. I hope that they will stay there. Ice hockey means a lot for Cherepovets, a lot of fans go to the stadium and the city lives by the sport.

- Following this season's completion, three clubs will leave the KHL.

- I hope that Severstal won't be one of them. They are playing brilliantly, and they have everything to make their supporters happy. The stadium and infrastructure are good. I wish my hometown club luck.
