Winners of 3 in a row, Kunlun visits Riga playing quite possibly its best hockey ever. Speaking of red hot, Dynamo Moscow has won three in a row and now opens up its 2-game homestand against an Avangard club that has uncharacteristically dropped two in a row.

Even hotter is the club across town, Spartak Moscow, which has won 4 in a row and welcomes a Jokerit club that has officially turned its season around, coming in on another 2-game winning streak. Four wins in a row is the name of the game for Sibir as well, which will host a heavily struggling Avtomobilist club. After a hot start, the team from Yekaterinburg is now hovering around .500 and is the loser of six in a row – and they’re just starting their 3-game road trip.

Barys kicks off its 3-game homestand against Metallurg, which they beat earlier this season while Lokomotiv, having won two in a row, kicks off its 3-game road trip in Nizhny Novgorod, where opponent Torpedo is on a 2-game losing streak. Lastly, Sochi begins its 3-game homestand against an always dangerous, and currently streaking, Salavat team.
