Kunlun Red Star had a decent start of the season, but now they are sitting in last place in the Eastern Conference standings after Admiral surpassed them recently. On the other hand, Dinamo Minsk has been just fine lately, conquering a point in Helsinki after an OT loss to Jokerit. The Belarussians need points for their playoff push, and they will seek the maximum result in the lone game of a light KHL matchday.
