– Sergey, what did not work for you today?
– He did not score his chances from the beginning of the match. As if they were going out to play this game with dignity, and not to resume the series… It was a mistake.
– You are already an experienced player. What did they tell the team before Game 7?
– The seventh game – it’s hard to say something here. If someone needs to be motivated for the seventh match, then you yourself understand … I tried to somehow start a team, but apparently it was my mistake – I could not show the game, lead.
How would you rate the season?
– The task was more than worthy of playing the season. There were other goals and objectives. Judging by today’s game, a failure.
But you lost the fight…
– No prizes are given for good effort. Therefore, to say that we fight and we try…
– Are you unlucky or does CSKA have more experience?
– All together. Experience, skill. Game 7 is the time to show your best hockey.
– A key moment in the series?
– Today. He pulled a series with 3: 1, came back. But you had to take away the seventh game.
— Will CSKA be able to become champion?
– Definitely, there is skill and experience. How will they go further? I don’t know. Good luck.
— Why not try to turn the game around with a few hits? For a start…
– It is difficult to play with skirmishes and fights. There is a great danger of receiving a ticket and leaving five minutes. This is unacceptable, such are our rules. We try to go back through the game. Of course now, looking back, yes, something had to be done.
What would you say to the fans?
– Thanks to the fans for the crazy support throughout the season. On behalf of the team, I apologize for such a ridiculous ending. They deserve more.
