Just one game is on tap today, with the Belarussian side trying to get points in Sochi. But the Black Sea franchise is fiercely battling to catch up with the other playoff contending teams.

Dinamo Minsk has already defeated HC Sochi this season, but it was a whole another story. Now, Sochi changed head coach, appointing Andrei Nazarov, and won six of its latest ten games – that’s a playoff-worth pace. Dinamo Minsk lost some momentum in November, but after a six-match losing streak and a trickle of injuries, the Belarussian side is back on track – they ultimately had a convincing win over Traktor, lost to SKA by one goal, and had a sound win over Vityaz on Friday. It’s a light KHL matchday today, but with plenty of interest and emotions in front of the fans.

17:00: HC Sochi (14-17-4, 10th W) vs Dinamo Minsk (17-12-6, 7th W)
