Indeed, after standing at the gates of a series sweep, Jokerit has had its share of problems in closing the door. Lokomotiv now has its mojo going, but can that mojo last another two games? If not, they’re out!
A few kilometers to the west, Salavat has taken a 3-2 lead over Avangard after its second 6-3 victory of the series. Now the Ufa boys head home hoping that the home ice advantage will lead to them finishing off Avangard once and for all.
