Only four points separate 8th from 10th in the Eastern Conference and all four teams involved are in action. Amur simply MUST defeat Neftekhimik in order to possibly bounce into a playoff spot. Of course, the opposite is the same for Neftekhimik.
Kunlun currently occupies the 8th spot and is playing its last home game in Novosibirsk. It simply cannot afford to lose as one of Amur or Neftekhimik would otherwise jump over them. They’re playing a Dinamo Riga team that has nothing more to win or lose, but would be very happy to be the spoiler.
Admiral hosts the ever impressive Barys with its back against the wall, needing to win all its games in regulation time from here on out in order to have a playoff prayer. Fortunately for them, they’ve beaten Barys 3 times this season and seem to have their number.
