The CSKA striker Prokhor Poltapov summed up the match with "Lokomotiv".
— Today's game was the same as it will be in the playoffs. When I shot on goal in the episode of the goal, I knew the puck could have crossed the goal line, but I didn't know if it did it completely. I only saw that the player I hit was behind the front. I was guided at this moment by my instincts, just need to throw it to the gate, there were a lot of people there, and somehow it would fly in.
