With five games of action on the slate today, there are plenty of playoff scenarios that can be determined.

For Salavat, they can clinch a playoff spot if they defeat Amur in any way. They can also advance with a single point against Amur if Sibir should lose to Traktor. The same is the case if they lose to Amur in regulation time, but Sibir loses to Traktor in regulation time as well.

Got it?

Good. Back to red hot Metallurg, which has won five in a row. A playoff spot is there’s by the end of the day if they manage to defeat Spartak in any way. If they only get one point against the Muscovites, that’ll be sufficient if Sibir loses to Traktor. They can also lose in regulation, but they’d need Traktor to defeat Sibir in regulation too.

So, Traktor can determine a lot today!

Oh, and Barys hosts the improving Neftekhimik while Avtomobilist renews its feud with league leading Ak Bars, both of which needing to get back on track with their prior winnings ways.
