Should Dinamo Riga have as many or fewer points than Spartak Moscow today, they will be eliminated from playoff qualification. That could end up being their reality real quick as the face off against the mighty Ak Bars on the road. So, whose money is on the Latvians?

Elsewhere on the busiest day of the season, Jokerit and Barys duke things out in Helsinki while Avtomobilist looks to continue a 4-game winning streak against a SKA team that has been lacking consistency.

Salavat welcomes Severstal for the next edition of their long-time rivalry while two-in-a-row winner Traktor hopes to kick Avangard while the team is down. The visitor from Omsk has lost three in a row. Likewise, Metallurg looks see its 2-game winning streak grow at home against Lokomotiv while CSKA looks to take advantage of cross-town rival Spartak in its race to catch Ak Bars in the standings.

All in all, there are 11 games on tap today – meaning there’s more KHL action to enjoy than you can shake a stick at!
