When Lokomotiv hosts Dinamo Minsk today, it will do so for the first time in 10 years and with heavy hearts. The tragic day in history back in 2011 left almost no corner of the hockey world untouched and cost the lives of the team, the staff, and all in the flight crew – people that are missed to this very day. Their spirits are to be honored as the team marches on into competition with their memory never forgotten.

Elsewhere, Metallurg and Salavat face off as two teams having gotten off to fantastic starts. They each enter today’s contest with a 2-0 record, but someone’s going home a loser tonight.

Torpedo hasn’t lost at home in quite some time against Sibir and it doesn’t intend to tonight either, but Sibir isn’t going to giving them anything without a fight. Of course, they’ve lost two in a row, so one’s got to wonder what the level of confidence is heading into today’s game.
