SKA-Serebryanye Lvy St. Petersburg forward Andrei Altybarmakyan spoke to the media after the game against Amurskie Tigry. St. Petersburg enjoyed a solid 6-1 win. Altybarmakyan scored two goals and added two assists to that for a total of four points.
“We couldn’t wait for the first game of the season and we’re glad we won,” said Altybarmakyan. “In the exhibition game against SKA-1946 we didn’t show everything we’re capable of. Now this season has begun and we have to give it a 100%. We didn’t play a lot of pre-season games this year so we’re going to have to make up for it on in the regular season. We could have scored a lot more goals today – we had so many scoring chances. In the next game we will try to do better defensively. We’re not going to count our points. We’re going to get ready for every game and play to win.”
