In Kazan, Ak Bars still features one of the league’s best overall records, but will end its 3-game homestand against Jokerit and its 6-game winning streak! It’s anyone’s bet who’ll take this one. SKA ends its 3-game road trip in Nizhnekamsk, where they’ve enjoyed a long history of success. But with 3 losses in its last 4 games, will the St. Petersburg club be able to keep up that tradition of dominance?

Out west, Vityaz ends its 3-game homestand against an always tough Traktor team while Dinamo Minsk starts a 4-game homestand against Torpedo, with each team coming into the contest on losing streaks.
