They’re jostling for playoff position and Jokerit just can’t seem to string together all too many victories at once. Severstal would like nothing better than jump over the Jokers in the standings. Today would seem a grand opportunity to do so.

Avangard has no playoff worries and their game today against Dinamo Riga is little more than a formality. They’ll complete a 4-game homestand looking for their 4th straight victory while Riga has gone weeks without getting more than a point out of a game.
