The Jokers start the KHL matchday with an early game in Vladivostok after losing to Amur on Thursday. Another five clashes are on tap on a busy KHL Saturday.

After a bitter SO loss to Amur, Jokerit continues its Far East tour with a visit to Vladivostok. The Jokers got a point off their game in Khabarovsk, and are just three points behind SKA in the Western Conference standings. However, it won't be easy for the Finnish side, as Admiral will want to rever the trend after three straight losses.

In the other Far East game, Amur faces Barys in a playoff qualification battle, while Metallurg welcomes Vityaz trying to keep the ball rolling.

Later in the day, a battle is expected in Chelyabinsk when Traktor hosts Ak Bars, while other KHL games are on tap in Yekaterinburg and Sochi.
