Moscow and St. Petersburg renew their rivalry with two distance matchups when SKA hosts Metallurg and CSKA welcomes Avtomobilist on an eventful KHL Tuesday.

Five games are on tap tonight, with plenty of action in the Western Conference. Severstal is on a hot six-game winning streak and is looking forward to stretching it in a home clash against Spartak. The Red-and-Whites are pretty cold, with two losses in a row. Another important game for the playoff standings is the Torpedo and Lokomotiv showdown.

However, the temperature will rise further when SKA welcomes Metallurg and Avtomobilist visits Moscow to face CSKA. Both the Armymen and the Steel Foxes are on a hot streak, and it will be exciting to see what side will prevail and go on with its victories. CSKA will instead host Avtomobilist - the Motormen's season is full of ups and downs, but they are still the fifth seed in the East and shouldn't be underlooked by the Red Army.

A Dynamos showdown in Minsk completes the KHL matchday with five games in store.
