A long road trip awaits Dinamo Riga, with the day starting early in the Far East, with both Khabarovsk and Vladivostok hosting games. Later, Traktor will try to get out of problems while facing Avangard, and Kunlun Red Star hosts Vityaz.

Dinamo Riga lost its previous game against Severstal, failing to score as Dmitry Shugayev had his first career shutout. The Latvian franchise needs to be producing more than 15 shots this time to create more chances in front of Amur's crease.

Recently, Traktor had been a bit on a slump and for the first time this season lost two games in a row. Facing Avangard at home, Anvar Gatiyatulin's men have a great chance to return to taste victory and stole points from an Eastern Conference rival.

In the other two games of the day, Admiral will try to revert the trend facing Torpedo at home, while Kunlun Red Star welcomes Vityaz after losing to SKA.
