Dmitri Katelevsky, forward, Ak Bars
“That’s the first time that’s happened to me — I’ve never scored seven goals in a game before. Especially in the minority, majority, equal standing, and into an empty goal! But I have to say some good things about my teammates — they got the puck really well, played a passing game. Will I get the prize for best offence? We’ll see how it goes. The main thing is to win the Cup!”
Lenar Vildanov, head coach, Ak Bars:
“That’s the first time I can remember this happening. I don’t recall a player getting seven goals in one game before. Yesterday Katelevsky didn’t get his quintuple, he just slightly ’lost’ his head — but today it’s back on. This was unexpected, usually we score equally, but today such an achievement.”
