The Jokers are back in Helsinki and will try to get out of the hole after losing htree straight games following a fantastic winning series between September and October. Dinamo Riga welcomes Sibir, Ufa hosts the season's second Green Derby and other two games complete the KHL matchday.

Despite an unfavorable losing streak, Jokerit is still one of the top teams in the Western Conference's standings. The Finnish side lost some points down the road, but it's reasonable to think that they will return to be one of the teams to beat in the West once the storm has passed.

In the meantime, Dinamo Riga hosts Sibir as the Latvian franchise tries to get back to playoff places. The Riga side is just one point off the eighth seed in the West as the competition for a postseason spot is very tight since the start of the regular season.

Another team on a bit of slump is Ak Bars. However, the Tatarstan franchise won the season's first Green Derby, and they will undoubtedly want to make it two as Dmitry Kvartalnov's men travel to Ufa. The exciting KHL Tuesday is completed by the second consecutive clash between Admiral and Traktor and a showdown between Dinamo Minsk and Kunlun Red Star in Belarus.
