Jokerit travels to Ufa with the task of halting its two-game losing streak, while Dinamo Riga moves to Sochi as the Latvian side tries to gain points for its playoff push. Sibir vs Vityaz and Barys vs SKA complete the KHL matchday.

The Helsinki side had an incredible hot streak earlier in the season, but now it's down to two consecutive losses and a difficult trip to Ufa. However, the Jokers have enough talent to turn the situation and start another winning streak. Moreover, Ufa has historically suffered against Jokerit at home.

Dinamo Riga moves to the Black Sea shores as Pavel Zubov's men try to defeat HC Sochi again to climb up in the standings. The playoffs line is not far, but the Latvian side needs points to tighten the gap.
