I realize Magnitka has the best power-play in the KHL, but Slovan is among the best KHL teams in short-handed play, especially in recent months. That's exactly why I predicted no PPG for Magnitka today. I can't remember when was the last game that Slovan allowed a goal while short-handed. Of course, this can all collapse today.

Two of Slovan's regular defensemen, Štajnoch and Tabaček, are injured, and the replacement Mihálik has been extremely shaky this season, except in the very last game when he even scored the opening goal against Avtomobilist. Sigalet committed quite a few gaffes in recent games. If the NHL season starts soon and Višňovský with Sekera leave, Slovan will have to worry about making the play-offs at all.
