Dinamo Riga is now trying to get back to victory after three straight losses, but it will face an enormous task when SKA visits them on Wednesday. After losing 8:0 to Jokerit, the team will want to react and return to winning. The Armymen, however, just seriously strengthened the team with Nikita Gusev and Mikko Lehtonen.
Moreover, the Latvians don't win at home against SKA since 2016 - it would be the right time for Dinamo to return defeating St. Petersburg on home soil.
