The two early season juggernauts will now clash as Metallurg plays its fourth straight home game. Several scoring streaks are on the line as Avangard looks to solve goaltender Juho Olkinuora, who just missed pitching a 60-minute shutout in his last outing.

Avtomobilist is also undefeated and is happy to be facing a Torpedo club that is coming in off a loss, even if Damir Zhafyarov is on fire in the scoring department. Dinamo Riga is finally in the win column and hopes that’ll continue tonight against a Neftekhimik club that has the same record.

SKA gets back home for a pair of games, but will be tested hard as undefeated Lokomotiv makes its way to St. Petersburg. Another team happy to be home is Jokerit, which will pit its 2-game winning streak against that of Ak Bars, which continues to be one of the KHL’s strongest outfits. 

You’re not going to want to miss today’s blockbusters!
