The Jokers are again leading the West after defeating Amur on Monday, and today face Severstal trying to maintain the lead. Nine games are on tap on a busy KHL Wednesday!

Jokerit is having a tremendous season, and they have a chance to gain another two points with a visit to Cherepovets. Severstal is also in great shape, but Jokerit has everything needed to win and retain its leadership.

Dinamo Riga has also a good chance to gather precious points in a home game against Amur. The Khabarovsk side is also eager for points as it currently sits in the ninth place of the Eastern Conference standings. The two sides have already met this season, with Amur prevailing after SO. This time, however, Dinamo Riga will have Vladimir Krikunov behind its bench.

The KHL matchday starts in the Eastern Conference, with its leaders busy with home games as Metallurg hosts Kunlun Red Star, and Traktor welcomes SKA trying to revenge its defeat in St. Petersburg.

Neftekhimik faces Sibir in the last game in the East for this Wednesday.

In the West, Dinamo Minsk hosts Vityaz trying to enlarge the gap over the ninth seed, while Lokomotiv is called to a challenging night against Avangard without one of its leaders, Maxim Shalunov. The action then moves to Moscow. In the Russian capital, Dynamo hosts Admiral and CSKA welcomes Torpedo in an action-packed KHL Wednesday.
