Despite a recent loss, Jokerit has been hot of late and looks forward to greeting a Torpedo club that has had its share of problems in Helsinki over the years. Kunlun plays its fifth home game in a row and welcomes a Dynamo Moscow team that it has yet to ever defeat.

Severstal ends a 3-game road trip all the way out in Vladivostock against a strong Admiral club that it has beaten in each of their last four meet-ups. Meanwhile, Ak Bars hits the road in Ufa with its 14-3 record looking to take down an always tough Salavat opponent.
