HC SKA head coach Valery Bragin:

- The first period was in favour of the opponents, but we played well during the second and third frames. Of course, we are disappointed with the decisive goal which we conceded on the powerplay, we made a mistake which allowed them to score. The main thing is that we conceded to play our game when 0:3 down. I am disappointed with the result, we equalised and had an advantage over Avangard in the concluding two periods.

- Anton Burdasov has set a new KHL record.

- He is working hard and taking advantage of his strengths.

- What do you think about Yaroslav Askarov's performance?

- He played really well in the last two periods of the game. The most important thing is that he is continuing to develop, everyone knows that Yaroslav is a talented guy. He needs to keep improving his qualities in games and training sessions.

- Why didn't Magnus Hellberg travel and how is Danila Galenyuk?

- Danila is recovering. Magnus is ill, so he stayed at home.

Valery Bragin: "The main thing is that we kept going"

- Which players will compete in your first line?

- We are searching for the optimal option.

- You probably understood the importance of this rivalry with Avangard. Why did SKA start so slowly?

- Personally, I think that the first period was equal in terms of game play, but they scored and we didn't.

- Avangard had an advantage in terms of faceoffs, blocked shots and hits.

- The statistics concerning faceoffs disappoints me.

- The next game is against Oleg Znarok's Spartak Moscow.

- I have a good relationship with Oleg. It's just another match in the KHL championship.
