Alas, stakes are high for a number of teams in today’s action.

Spartak Moscow can reach the playoffs today if Sochi fails to defeat Severstal. Likewise, Barys can reach the playoffs if it manages to defeat Neftekhimik AND Kunlun fails to win against Traktor.

Sadly for Latvian KHL fans, Dinamo Riga will miss out on any chance of making the playoffs if it loses against Dynamo Moscow OR Torpedo gains even one point against Lokomotiv.

Elsewhere, Avtomobilist concludes a 4-game homestand looking to end its 2-game losing streak while SKA will do the same hoping to win its fourth in a row. Its opponent, Avangard, is shooting for its eighth straight win, so fans can get excited about what should be quite the doozy this evening!
