In fact, Ak Bars will wrap up the Continental Cup if it manages to defeat its closest pursuer CSKA in today’s big match-up. Likewise, CSKA can take the cup as well with a victory over Ak Bars of any kind.

Yep, this regular season cup goes to today’s victor!

Meanwhile, Avangard will once again look to take the Chernyshev Division by gaining a point of any kind against Barys today or if Salavat fails to defeat Lokomotiv.
