It’s the first gameday in quite some time for both of these clubs, but the consistently shaky boys in Vityaz host a Jokerit team hot to get back into the win column. Kunlun is coming off a couple of losses and can’t expect things to get much easier when Avangard pays them a visit tonight, albeit both are looking to end a 2-game losing streak.

More successful in their last games were Torpedo and Barys, both of which are just a game under .500 for the season. Which of the two is heading back into the loss column this evening?

Meanwhile, a team with 30 losses welcomes a team with 26 losses. Together, Dinamo Riga and Sochi have combined for just 15 victories this season, but one of the two will be adding to their total by day’s end.
