Metallurg welcomes Barys for the fourth time in the last eight years while SKA faces Dinamo Minsk for the first time ever in the hunt for the Gagarin Cup.

Two other match-ups are also completely new. Dynamo Moscow takes on Severstal for the first time ever while Avangard hosts Avtomobilist. Interestingly, none of these teams dominated their respective playoff opponent in the regular season, so some very tight series are looking possible here.
