A Game 7 victory over Lokomotiv has led us all to a match-up everyone has been looking forward to. For the fifth time in the last six years, these teams are facing off in the Western Conference final, with CSKA having won the last three such series.

SKA is coming in a bit more rested after having dismissed a Dynamo Moscow team that had been a thorn in its side all season long. CSKA had to stave off elimination just a few nights ago.

Let the battle begin!
