The Blue-and-Whites lost their previous couple of games after a long winning streak, and they will want to return celebrating. Amur and Kunlun Red Star try to get their revenge against Traktor and CSKA, while Avangard welcomes Spartak, Torpedo faces Dinamo Minsk, and Neftekhimik hosts Avtomobilist in an action-packed KHL Saturday.

Vadim Shipachyov will try to return to the scoresheet after being silent in a rare Dynamo Moscow defeat against CSKA on Wednesday (0:3). CSKA, on the other hand, faces Kunlun again after Monday's home win.
