CSKA will secure a spot in the top four in the west if it manages to gain at least one point from Sochi or Jokerit gets less than three points against Kunlun. Avtomobilist will secure a playoff spot if it manages to take two or more points against Neftekhimik or gains one point against Neftekhimik while Sibir loses to Barys in any way.

Speaking of Barys, the boys from Kazakhstan will advance to the playoffs if they can gain at least two points from Sibir, which is really in the middle of things tonight, because they’ll be eliminated from playoff qualification if they lose in regulation time or if they lose in overtime while Avtomobilist manages to gain even one point against Neftekhimik.

On the road, Amur is also staring at playoff elimination with a loss in any way to Traktor or if Barys manages to gain even one point over Sibir, despite what Amur does.

All in all, there are nine games on tap for this action-packed Friday, with none looking to provide more fireworks than Metallurg, winners of eight straight, hosting league-leading Ak Bars, winners of four straight.
