Barys has also been strong against Metallurg in regular season play, but the boys from Magnitogorsk have never lost a playoff series to Barys.
SKA enters the playoffs as basically the KHL’s hottest team. Their opponent is Vityaz, a team that basically backed its way into a playoff spot.
Meanwhile, Jokerit opens the playoffs with home ice advantage, but the Jokers lost four of six regular season match-ups against Lokomotiv.
Excitement is guaranteed as the KHL playoffs begin!
