Salavat welcomes Traktor for the first time since the epic 7-game series in 2018 while CSKA faces off against a Spartak Moscow team that it’s had plenty of problems with this season.

Jokerit looks to be back on track with some key forwards scoring with reckless abandon just now, but Lokomotiv has been preparing for this all season long. Ak Bars is ready to take it to a Torpedo club that is the playoffs’ truest underdog.
