Looks like Dynamo and Torpedo are in for a battle, but Dynamo has slowing been making its way to the 30-win mark this season. Already there (and more) is Ak Bars, which has a league-high 33 wins and welcomes a huge rival in Avangard. Kazan team needs to get just one point for clinching playoff berth.

Severstal hosts Dinamo Riga in what he feels should be a gimme and Dinamo Minsk welcomes an Avtomobilist club that has two straight wins in its pocket.

Lastly, Spartak Moscow hosts Jokerit in what promises to be a touchy affair. Both teams sure could use more consistency in the win column!
