CSKA St. Petersburg take on Saturday its chief rival in the regular championship of the Continental hockey League Finnish “Jokerit”. This year the clubs have met in the beginning of the season, and stronger in that match was the team of Oleg Znarka – 2:0. In General, by the way, Jokerit lost only twice in the current season. And now the Finns are not too far from being able to break the record SKA 20 wins in a row in the CHL. Now the team of Yucca Alanina Victoria for 15 in a row.

Russian Grand spent in the last seven days, four games. Such a complex schedule affected the results of the St. Petersburg SKA lost at home and HC “Sochi” and “AK Bars” with the same score 2:3. Both the defeat the army suffered in overtime. But then the schedule Ilya Kovalchuk companions will not be easy – already on Monday, will play in Moscow against CSKA.

Before the match the head coach of the Finns Jalonen added fuel to the fire by comparing the financial capabilities of both teams. He said he knows the size of bonuses for the game, which are paid in the army command, and they far exceed the reward in the “Jokerit”.

However, hockey playing, not money, and people. And only in the hockey arena it will become clear which of the clubs at the moment, the strongest in the NHL, and maybe in all of Europe. Very strange, incidentally, that this supermatch will not be shown live not only on TV but also on a dedicated TV channel KHL.

For the army it is very important to score in this match three points. The team of Viktor Gancharenko had a poor performance in the Champions League: lost to “Basel” – 0:2. And in the match with the Swiss CSKA did not cause any impact to the target opponent. Hope in the hearts of army fans gives us that the hospital team is almost empty. For the match against St Petersburg will not be able to recover from damage only Alan Dzagoev.

Zenit in the last round of championship unexpectedly lost at home Tula “Arsenal” – 0:1, and the distance between Saturday’s opponents was reduced to four points. In addition to the greater depth of the composition of the club, Roberto Mancini has one more advantage – the statistics: CSKA could not beat “Zenith” for 8(!) matches.
