The Jokers are moving to the Kazakh capital to seek yet another win after blanking Sibir on Monday. Five games are on tap in an exciting KHL Wednesday.

Jokerit is trailing SKA just one point in the Western Conference standings. They will certainly want to catch the Armymen up, if possible, before the league stops for the upcoming Karjala Cup in Finland. Moreover, the Jokers have a hot goalie in Janne Juvonen - the 27-years-old netminder allowed only one goal in the latest two games as he's doing the best use of his chance.

In the East, Avangard pays a visit to Nizhnekamsk - the Hawks defeated Neftekhimik six consecutive times, and Bob Hartley's men will want to make it seven in a row, while Admiral will try to surprise Traktor just as Vityaz did on Monday.

The showdowns between Salavat Yulaev and Amur, and HC Sochi and Kunlun Red Star complete the KHL matchday.
