The boys from Kazan have started the season just as they’d hoped, but so too has Avangard. It’s anyone’s call who’s going to take this one tonight. An Avtomobilist club that is every bit as hot Ak Bars and Avangard hopes to extend its 3-game winning streak to four and slumping visitor Vityaz looks like just the right victim in that endeavor.

Roman Will and Traktor find themselves on a 3-game winning streak and want to keep things going as they host Severstal, a team that will be coming in nice and fresh after several days off.

On the flip side of the coin, Kunlun has seven losses in a row, but at least it took its last opponent to overtime. Of course, facing Lokomotiv won’t make it any easier in trying to get that first victory this season. Also desperately looking for victories are Neftekhimik and Amur, each boasting only one win to date. Nizhnekamsk will be the site for one of them gaining at least two points in acquiring win number two.
