Jokerit's fantastic streak may go on as the Helsinki side faces Severstal at home. Moscow will see three matches with Ak Bars, Barys, and Neftekhimik as opponents. Magnitka and Salavat Yulaev will remotely battle for Eastern Conference supremacy.

The team led by Lauri Marjamaki is having an incredible series, with ten wins in a row and several players pumping up their numbers. Severstal looks like a good victim for the Jokers, but underrating the opposition sometimes comes at hand when you get used to winning. Earlier in the gameday, Metallurg will also try to lengthen a hot streak facing Avtomobilist at home. Salavat Yulaev will battle with Magnitka in the standings with a home match against Sibir.

Things promise to be interesting in Moscow when CSKA faces Ak Bars with Adam Reideborn in excellent shape. Still, perhaps the most complicated task will be on Barys' netminders: will they be able to stop Vadim Shipachyov?

The third game in Moscow will see Spartak and Neftekhimik clash. Both sides are on a negative series; thus the fans are going to see the potential birth of a winning streak.
