HC SKA head coach Valeri Bragin:
- We found it difficult at the beginning of the match. However, we subsequently began to play our brand of ice hockey in the concluding two periods.
- Alexander Samonov made his first appearance for a very long time. What did you make of his performance?
- He played well.
- Why did your players take four penalties today?
- It's tough to say. We were once caught during a shift change.
- SKA have a lot of candidates for the Russian national team. How will this affect your preparation for the 2021/2022 KHL Gagarin Cup playoffs?
- The national team always has priority.
