Meanwhile, Kunlun is just finishing off the season while SKA looks to tweak some systems in preparation for the playoffs. Jokerit, on the other hand, has got to get back into the win column. There have been far too many losses of late at this important juncture of the season. Facing a point-desperate Vityaz club, which is three points out of a playoff spot, isn’t going to make things any easier.
