The Latvians face an Eastern leader after its win over Admiral. Vityaz hosts Salavat Yulaev, and Spartak welcomes Barys in a light KHL Thursday.

Dinamo Riga's 2021-2022 campaign has been up and down, but playoff hopes are still alive with half of the regular season in front of the Latvian franchise. Moreover, Dinamo had a nice win over Admiral on Monday and this may morally help the Riga side to face a contender like Ak Bars.
