Each of those three are down 2-0 in the series and have produced precious little offense. Two goals for Torpedo, one goal for Spartak, and 0 for Jokerit just isn’t going to cut in the KHL playoffs. A loss today will make the fourth defeat little more than inevitable, right?

Traktor heads home having split its road games in Ufa, but the series is looking as tight as any thus far in the playoffs. Expect nothing more than another hard-fought battle with neither team being able to gain too big a lead in the process.
