CSKA will claim the Western Conference title if SKA should lose to Jokerit. At the same time, Jokerit can secure 3rd place in the Western Conference if it gains at least one point against SKA OR Dynamo Moscow fails to gain all 2 points against Spartak Moscow.
Dynamo Moscow will be firmly entrenched in 4th place in the Western Conference if it fails to gain 2 points against Spartak Moscow OR Jokerit manages to gain even a point against SKA. Meanwhile, Spartak Moscow will be firmly entrenched in 5th place in the Western Conference if it gains at least one point against Dynamo Moscow OR Lokomotiv fails to get all 2 points against Avangard.
Lokomotiv will secure 6th place in the Western Conference if it fails to get all 2 points against Avangard OR Spartak Moscow gains at least one point against Dynamo Moscow.
With this all in mind, the playoff picture for the first round of the Western Conference can be solidified, which would see Jokerit face off against Lokomotiv and Dynamo Moscow play archrival Spartak Moscow. That would also mean that on March 1st, Jokerit and SKA would begin their series as the home teams while on March 2nd, CSKA and Dynamo Moscow would begin their series as the home teams.
