The gamedays are ticking away and so too are the opportunities to sneak into the playoffs. For both Vityaz and Spartak Moscow, a loss doesn’t come into questions. But will Vityaz be able to deal with Kunlun in the same manner Spartak hopes to dispense of Riga?

Others in play battling for points in the west include Dinamo Minsk, Severstal, and Jokerit, all of whom are in striking distance of one another for 5th in the conference.

Also, with a victory today over Traktor, CSKA would take over first place in the KHL.
