The Siberians have three wins in a row and are heading west for a bout against a Dinamo Riga team that has looked a bit better recently, but is still hurting badly for wins.

Of course, even more impressive are the eight straight games with at least one point (including six regulation victories) that Ak Bars have racked up and the team from Kazan will visit a Metallurg club that has lost two in a row.

In addition, Salavat has won two in a row and welcomes Neftekhimik, which itself is coming in off a recent victory. Should be another exciting day in the KHL!
