The KHL Monday features four exciting games, with the highlight of the matchday being the third Moscow Derby between Spartak and CSKA. Torpedo will try to build momentum in a home game vs Avtomobilist, while one between Vityaz and Sibir will interrupt an unpleasant losing streak. And finally, Avangard travels to Sochi.

Spartak and CSKA often play close games, despite being in different parts of the standings. Their latest showdown - last than a week ago - had CSKA winning with a tight 1:0 score, with the game's lone goal coming off Sergei Plotnikov's stick. It was an exciting goalkeeping duel between Adam Reideborn and Oscar Dansk, but it was also the last game played by the Spartak netminder so far.

In Nizhny Novgorod, things get exciting for the home crowd as Torpedo has a chance to stretch a winning streak against Avtomobilist and further climb up in the standings.

The action moves to the Moscow Region, where Avangard hosts a more aggressive HC Sochi - the team recently appointed Andrei Nazarov as their new head coach - and Vityaz welcomes Sibir as both teams are desperately seeking a win to halt losing streaks.
