- Can we say that this was SKA's toughest match so far?

- It was certainly one of the most difficult. It's good that we managed to win.

- Was it an emotional game?

- I think that you saw that for yourselves. There were fights, emotions and everything you need for a good match.

- Did you watch last season's Gagarin Cup final?

- I didn't watch it in any detail.

- Following that Gagarin Cup final, did Metallurg have special motivation to play SKA?

- It's hard to say. It was a difficult game for us, both teams were pumped us.

- Why couldn't SKA win in regulation time?

- We were lacking concentration. For Metallurg's third goal, I failed to close one of their players down. However, we did have chances to score a fourth before that marker.

- Sergei Mozyakin played a part in all Metallurg goals.

- He is a true master of the game. He gave assists and scored goals.

- Was it tougher playing against either CSKA or Metallurg?

- Everyone was waiting for the season's first match against CSKA Moscow. Today was a game against a strong opponent too.
