This game should be a doozy, because both are hot and their first match-up this year was a terribly tight contest. In a bout no less exciting, Metallurg looks to knock off the currently undefeatable CSKA at home, and although they beat them in Moscow earlier this season, they haven’t beaten them in three straight tries at home.

Salavat welcomes Barys and both need to recoup from recent losses while Vityaz looks to recover from several straight losses of its own as it hosts an Amur team that has – believe it or not – actually won two in a row.

The game featuring Torpedo and Sibir pits two extremely even teams with roughly the same record. They’ve even swapped victories in the previous two matchups this season.

Elsewhere, SKA is getting more and more players back from sick leave and hopes to give Dynamo Moscow its third straight loss while Spartak Moscow hopes Kunlun and its 5-game losing streak will be just the remedy to end a 3-game losing streak of its own.

The day will wind down in Sochi, where Avangard’s superhot goaltender will look to keep things nice and clean behind him in shooting for his team’s 11th win this season.
