AK Bars surprises with its uncompromising nature to the limit. They replaced Znark with maestro Bilyaletdinov, but the problems continue. The match at home with the Admiral is a natural bottom. Hockey players from the Far East tried, gave their best, but it was obvious that their resources were limited. Kazan managed to miss the first one and could not equalize for a long time. Saved one minute before the end of normal time. There are so many stars in the roster, but no teamwork, and individually they have long learned to turn off the game.

Salavat Yulaev lost the last home match against Magnitogorsk Metallurg, but the first two periods looked better than his opponent. There was speed and aggression in the attack, but the execution let us down. SU managed to open an account and in the third period conceded three goals in a row in a short time. Of course, the coaching staff will pay attention and modify the actions of the defence. Ufa’s players play differently on the road, but they give it their all against top clubs. While AK Bars are going down, SU should take advantage of that and score.
