It’s been a good long while, but Jokerit can finally get things revving up again. For win number three, they’ll have to take on a tough Sibir team that has played a good amount of hockey recently.

Lokomotiv had been hot, but is coming off a loss in its last game. In town tonight is Neftekhimik, which was victorious in its last outing. Meanwhile, Avangard suddenly finds itself on a 2-game losing streak and hosts Kunlun, which is coming its first win of the season. Something tells us this game will be tighter than you’d think by looking at the teams’ very different records.

The day’s biggest battles feature SKA against Ak Bars and Avtomobilist versus Dinamo Minsk. SKA is at home, but Ak Bars has lost just one of eight games thus far this season. Avtomobilist has been impressive this season, but what can you say about Minsk’s 3-game winning streak. This isn’t last year’s club, that’s for sure!
