The Finnish franchise is hunting its seventh consecutive victory as it visits Yaroslavl tonight after last week's 2-0 home win. Besides the Yaroslavl showdown, Monday will feature another five games.

The fourth regular-season week will kickstart with six exciting matches, with Jokerit facing Yaroslavl hunting for a seventh winning game. The Jokers can climb up to the top of the Western Conference with a win, but Dynamo Moscow will be three games short. On the other hand, Lokomotiv will want to get the ball rolling after a rocky start of the season.

Another hot team is Metallurg, who will face Admiral after defeating Amur on Saturday. The Steelers have five players in a scoring streak of at least three games: Brandon Leipsic, Philippe Maillet, Semyon Koshelev, Anatoli Nikontsev, and Josh Currie.

One of Sibir and Kunlun Red Star will break a scoring streak, while Traktor will also try to increase its number of consecutive wins in a home game against Dinamo Minsk. Ak Bars vs Vityaz, and Neftekhimik vs HC Sochi are the two remaining Monday showdowns.
