Maxim Krovyakov, SKA-1946 forward:
– Krasnaya Armiya played their game. There was nothing new for us, we prepared calmly for the matchup, it worked out well for us. Only positive emotions are there, it cannot be otherwise. We were not worried about game 7 to be required. The opponent was getting close, but all the guys were ready, we kept our chins up, we played our game, we didn't sit back. We were acting regardless of the score, playing our game and striving to win. After getting beat in game 5, we didn’t talk much about that game, we were upset for about 30 minutes. We were told to forget about it and to get ready for the next one in St. Petersburg. We were seriously committed to play the game well. The last game was the most difficult one in terms of emotions, but in general all games were tough.
