Torpedo completes its 3-game road trip in Moscow against the league best CSKA, which is on a 6-game winning streak and features two goalies who’ve played more than 100 straight minutes of shutout hockey. Yikes!

Amur is on a nice 3-game winning streak itself, but hosts a Dynamo Moscow team that it hasn’t beat at home in nearly a decade. Kunlun wraps up a 6-game homestand and hopefully a 3-game losing streak as it hosts a Sochi club in the midst of a 6-game losing streak.

In the middle of their own undesirable 4-game losing streak, Avtomobilist welcomes an Ak Bars club that is one of the KHL’s best teams thus far. Wrapping up today’s action, Lokomotiv starts up a 3-game homestand against Traktor, which is visiting Yaroslavl in the middle of a 4-game losing streak.
