In case of victory, one of the teams will lead the Western Conference. After a pause for the Eurotrip, the rivals were defeated in one match and won two. CSKA lost to SKA (2: 3OT) and beat Jokerit (3: 1) and Dynamo Minsk (6: 4). The White-Blue defeated Avtomobilist (7: 1) and Torpedo (6: 3), but lost to Sochi (2: 3OT).
Unexpectedly, but the bookmakers give serious preference to CSKA. The odds for his victory in the match are 1.77. Guests – 2.17.
The teams have met three times this season. In early October, when Alexei Kudashov’s charges were in decline, CSKA won 3: 0. Then Dynamo were more successful in the shootout (3: 2). And in early December, in overtime, the victory was celebrated by the team of Sergei Fedorov (3: 2).
Muscovites who have the best KHL player Vadim Shipachev a priori cannot play badly in attack, since no coach knows how to neutralize this striker. Therefore, it is logical that Dynamo is the best team in the West in terms of performance. CSKA in the beginning was the most boring club in the league. But those days have passed and now the “army team” and play themselves, and give the opponent.
That is why we believe that the scythe will not find on the stone and we bet more than 2 guests on the total with a coefficient of 1.8.
