The Yekaterinburg club won the series with a score of 4:1 and reached the semi-finals of the Gagarin Cup. The season is over for SKA. The striker of the St. Petersburg team, Alex Galchenyuk, spoke about this.

– During the match, you were leading with a score of 4:2? Of course, it was our game. I didn’t finish until the end. There is a lot to be said for such a close match. The initiative was on our side. Considering the level of our team, they should have removed it, but… Let’s learn our lesson and move on,” Galchenyuk was quoted as saying by “Championship”.

SKA has not won the Gagarin Cup since the 2016/2017 season. In the 2017/2018, 2018/2019, 2020/2021, 2021/2022 and 2022/2023 seasons, the team lost to CSKA in the 1/2 final. Now we couldn’t even get past the quarter-finals.
