Two KHL Eastern Conference games are on tap today.

Metallurg lost to Barys on Sunday, but since the loss arrived in OT, Magnitka earned a point that tied them with Traktor at 71 points on the top of the Eastern Conference’s standings – having 26 regulation wins, they are again on the summit. However, Traktor has a tremendous chance to return to the top facing Kunlun Red Star in its second straight game against the Dragons. Most recently, Traktor defeated Kunlun with a 4:0 score, will they be able to repeat the feat today?

In the first game of the KHL matchday, Amur faces Sibir for the second straight day. Yesterday, Harri Sateri’s sixth shutout of the season gave Sibir a win and enlarged the gap between Barys and the Tigers for the East’s eighth seed. However, Amur is just three points shy of the playoff line.
