The next game day of the KHL playoffs will end with a confrontation between two teams from the Western conference, Torpedo will host SKA on its site. The fourth game in the series will be held on March 22 at 19:30 Moscow time. Our portal has prepared a forecast for you on the outcome of this game.
Igor Larionov was able to surprise many during the tournament by building a really powerful team. "Torpedo" failed the start, but after that he adjusted the game and calmly in the playoff zone. In the relegation matches, the Reindeer managed to confidently advance to the next round in the series against Dynamo Moscow. It is already much more difficult for the Reindeer to play against SKA, so after three games the team has three defeats and there is no more room for error.
The Petersburgers controlled the course of the series with Dynamo Minsk in the first round and easily passed the opponent, even despite two offensive defeats. One can feel the margin of safety of the Petersburgers, which makes them one of the main contenders to win the tournament. So, in the opening matches with St. Petersburg, they have already defeated Nizhny Novgorod three times and can already qualify for the conference finals in the next game.
Statistics and figures:
- The last match between these teams ended with a 0:4 victory for SKA.
- Torpedo has won only twice in their last five meetings.
- SKA has a good streak of five consecutive wins.
