After losing to Dynamo Moscow on Monday, the Jokers are back in Helsinki with a home game against Admiral. Eight games in three countries are on tap on a busy KHL Wednesday.

After a bitter visit to Moscow on Monday, the Jokers return to Helsinki trying to boost their mood with a home game against Admiral - the latest team in the league’s standings. However, the Finn side shouldn’t wait for a walk in the park - the Sailors are in desperate need of points and will also want to break the spell as Admiral is yet to achieve a win in Helsinki.

The KHL matchday starts in the East with a showdown between Avtomobilist and Neftehimik. Another two exciting games are on tap in the Eastern Conference, with Metallurg hosting Amur trying to revert the trend - the Steelers lost their previous three matches. In Chelyabinsk, a winning streak is going to be abruptly interrupted as Traktor welcomes Sibir - both teams achieved four straight wins.

The action then moves to the Western Conference. In Belarus, Dinamo Minsk faces Severstal coming off a loss to CSKA after nine straight wins. SKA welcomes Lokomotiv, while Kunlun Red Star hosts Avangard trying to break their losing streak. However, the other Western Conference’s summit clash is the Moscow derby between CSKA and Dynamo. The Red Army won the first edition with a 3:0 shutout victory, but the Blue-and-Whites will likely want to get their revenge and fireworks are to be expected.
