The Dragons are not in their best moment – the side lost its previous eleven games, including a 1:5 defeat to SKA on Tuesday. Kunlun allowed twelve goals in its previous couple of matches, and scored only two – they need to find a way to improve their defense and produce more chances in the offensive zone. Severstal isn’t either in its best period – the Andrei Razin’s men only achieved two victories in their last five games, although the victims were of high caliber with wins over Ak Bars and Dynamo Moscow.
