KHL Game Day Preview | September 10, 2022

Will Metallurg ends its losing streak?

Magnitka didn’t have the start of the season Ilya Vorobyov was expecting – the Southern Urals franchise only won once in its first four games, and a home game against Spartak may be the best moment to break the series. The problem for them is that Spartak is in outstanding shape and is undefeated so far – and they will on the lookout to stretch the streak. Most recently, the Red-and-Whites came away from Magnitka with a victory.

On the other game of the night, Neftekhimik will seek its first win of the season when they host Dinamo Minsk. The Belarusian franchise had a much better start and will be on the front run to get to three wins.
