Thanks to a thrilling Game 7 overtime victory, Avangard has knocked off the mighty Ak Bars Kazan and will now play for the cup in what is a rematch of the 2019 Gagarin Cup finals. Coming out of a series in which the road team won every game, the men from Omsk will have no problem kicking off this series in Moscow.

For CSKA, which has had a few days off to rest and work on things, the advantage of home ice and some healed bodies looks almost insurmountable for an Avangard club that has got to be worn out a bit.

Make sure your front and center to see how things are decided in Game 1 where they should be – on the ice!
