But Spartak Moscow is kicking off their 4-game homestand with 3 wins in a row as well. Fans can expect quite the battle! CSKA is coming off a rare loss and visits Omsk to start a 4-game road trip. Nonetheless, an always tough Avangard hasn’t fared well against CSKA at home in recent years.

Speaking of winning streaks, Sibir has taken 3 in a row and welcomes Metallurg to town, which itself is the winner of 4 on row. Something has to give!

Less successful lately has been Vityaz, which kicks off a 4-game homestand against a Kunlun club that is on a 2-game winning streak. At least the Knights don’t have Dinamo Minsk’s worries. The Belarussians are concluding a 4-game homestand against Salavat, hoping to end a dreadful 7-game losing streak.
