Torpedo and Dynamo Moscow going to OT number 2, and no goals scored yet. Pretty good first day

What a game. 49 shots for Dynamo and finally get the winner from Karpov. Hietanen had 10 shots by himself. 33 saves for Yeryomenko. Hats off to Biryukov as well.

Torpedo never lets me down, I love this team. Skudra is my main candidate to start World War 3.

Probably something related to all the hits Biryukov was taking from Dynamo players.

Nothing wrong. I'm talking about his stubborn and aggressive attitude in general. He essentially turned Torpedo into a special team.

Man, what a back breaking loss for Torpedo. Fighting so hard to get another game to the OT, and then Biryukov gaves up a goal from the red line :

Minsk taking a beating is the biggest surprise for me, they seemed to be very solid during the regular season. Looks like another play-off disappointment for Minsk.

Torpedo-Dynamo and the third time they go to OT. Must be nerve-racking for the fans. Jokerit-CSKA also to OT. Pretty good game from Jokerit but every time Jokerit scores, CSKA finds a higher gear. Frustrating to watch.

Maybe frustrating but CSKA is clearly far better team and I'm not even big fan of them. Lol at people who thought they can make long run (they are 3rd in votes from poll above).

As for Podolsk, Im glad they made playoffs but series against SKA is mismatch

Those are homer votes, I mean 4 people voted for Kunlun which no rational person ever would.

Also I thought Loko - Minsk will be the most interesting first round series and yet Dinamo is getting steamrolled.

Sure, but with two matches decided on OT, the series could quite easily be 2-1 for Jokerit. CSKA is better and they've been in control most of time, but they are giving Jokerit a chance and they seem to have a hard time creating quality scoring chances despite all the possession.

Not with Jokerit track record in OT. Including Liiga games, Jokerit have only one win from their last 14 OT games in playoffs.

Jokerit played well today, I had to leave during the OT. I think Jokerit is missing game breakers, they need more players of Regin's quality.

Busy year for me, wasn't following as much as I would have liked to, but Jokerit finishing 8th????

"Built for playoffs" with more physical players and less skill on the team, one KHL level 1st/2nd line, 3 4th lines = result. They don't have the money to compete for better players.

He looks like he aged 25 years since he left the NHL.

Keränen was supposed to be good idk why.. Hishon was also very bad and I guess he cost way too much for what he brings. He is not worth 5 pucks and thats why he isnt even playing in the play offs.

In fact it's the same problem Jokerit face the last playoffs, they just don't have enough talent on the roster to compete against CSKA.

Great game, full house and fantastic atmosphere in Vladivostok.
I still think that looking for suprises /in our predicton game / in the playoffs will cost me /Hansom, don't be angry with me))/, because Avangard look like the stronger and the more experienced club.
Still at this point the games in the East Conference are much more entertaining.

Avangard with some really bad defensive mistakes, cost themselves a game. Nice effort from Adiral though to cut the lead! Kazakov with 4 goals in 3 games btw.

Not enough talent and the coaches seem to be quite inept. Apart from Karri Kivi, I don't have much confidence with Finnish coaches. Old fashioned tactics that are more like 90's hockey than modern hockey. A Swedish coach and a couple of good centers would turn Jokerit into a powerhouse.

Yes, the only Finnish coach to have won a Finnish league title, a World Junior Championships and a World Championship is inept. Raipe though... Success doesn't exactly follow him everywhere.
