Some decisions are already being made with respect to the initial playoff spots. Today, CSKA can qualify for the playoffs if it defeats Amur in any form or if it gains one point from Amur while Vityaz loses in regulation to SKA.

On the other hand, Dinamo Riga will be out of playoff hope if it gains as many or fewer points than Vityaz. Should both teams win, Dinamo maintains a shot at playoff qualification as long as its victory is in regulation time while Vityaz first wins in OT.

Likewise, Neftekhimik is on the brink of qualification elimination and will be out if it loses in regulation time while Barys manages to defeat Dynamo Moscow in any way.
