The Dragons lost their latest twelve games in a row and today they host Traktor – one of the hottest teams in the league. Only one game is on tap on a light KHL Saturday.

Kunlun Red Star has just lost any hope for a postseason qualification, but this doesn’t mean that they should stop playing just because. And most likely, they will not. Traktor is again the Eastern Conference’s second seed after Metallurg’s win of yesterday – they will likely want to win to get back to the summit. All this on this KHL’s Saturday lone game.

19:30: Kunlun Red Star (9-30-7, 12th E) vs (Traktor 33-11-3, 2nd E)
