As strong as Dinamo Minsk has been this season, one has to think Lokomotiv has the advantage due to its 5-game winning streak and the fact that Dinamo will be scratching 15 players tonight. Metallurg has quietly become one of the league’s best teams and looks to keep the current 5-game winning streak against Neftekhimik. Likewise, Avtomobilist looks to keep its dominance going as it visits and up-and-down Torpedo club.

Ak Bars is at home against a Barys team it’s defeated six straight times in Kazan, but the boys from Barys have a 2-game winning streak they’d like to enhance. Things look a bit different for Sochi and Amur as each is on a losing streak and hoping tonight will be their opportunity to change that in Adler.

The day’s action is further highlighted by the age-old battle between CSKA and SKA, both having strong seasons thus far. That CSKA is coming in on a 2-game losing streak could be to SKA’s advantage as all good things come in threes. But for whom?
