The Finnish franchise will play for its 12th consecutive victory as it visits Chelyabinsk, who is currently the third seed in the East. Dinamo Riga is also playing in the Eastern Conference, this time in Vladivostok. The KHL matchday will see other four games.

Jokerit is having an incredible season so far. The Finnish franchise had a bit of a rocky start, then had 11 wins in a row as it climbed to the top of the Western Conference standings. However, the game against Traktor won't be a walk in the park for the Jokers. The Chelyabinsk side showed excellent hockey this season, and is currently the third team in the Eastern Conference.

Dinamo Riga suffered from a baffling SO defeat in Khabarovsk on Saturday, and they will play their second consecutive game in the Russian Far East against Admiral. The Vladivostok-based squad defeated Torpedo on Saturday, and it won't be easy for Dinamo Riga to finally get two points.

The Far East will see another early match as Amur welcomes Vityaz. Sibir Novosibirsk hosts a cold Torpedo, with things heating up when Avtomobilist clashes with Avangard at 17:00. In Moscow, CSKA faces Kunlun Red Star.
