Riga just can’t seem to buy a win and Minsk certainly doesn’t plan on gifting the home team with one in today’s match-up. Spartak looks to win its third game in a row on the road against Severstal as struggling Kunlun kicks off a 6-game home stand against an even more desperate Neftekhimik club. Barys has been one of the KHL’s best teams and hopes to keep its winning streak alive in Ufa while Dynamo Moscow takes its show on the road to Chelyabinsk. A bit banged up at the moment, league leader Vityaz is taking on a tough Torpedo team in Nizhny Novgorod – and fully expect another win.
