The Latvian franchise hosts HC Sochi on Monday night as it tries to revert the trend after three straight losses. Another Dinamo side - the Minsk one - is also looking to return to victory hosting Amur. In Balashikha, Avangard welcomes Lokomotiv at its second game with a new coaching staff.

Dinamo Riga has improved its defense recently but will try to get its way to the opposition crease when HC Sochi moves to the Latvian capital. Sergei Zubov's men lost three matches in a row; the Black Sea franchise is at two. Therefore the fans will see the potential birth of a new positive series.

The showdown between Barys and Avtomobilist will open Monday's battles, while the Bisons host Amur after an OT loss to SKA and Avangard faces Lokomotiv. The motormen seek their first win with the new coaching staff led by former CSKA's bench boss Igor Nikitin.

Meanwhile, Severstal continues its playoff push hosting a cold Sibir side, while Traktor travels to Nizhny Novgorod seeking its third straight W. In the last game of the night, Vityaz faces SKA.
