Week review

Tournaments table and other statistics here.

Many interesting and unexpected results were fixed after the last KHL break. The teams from the bottom part of the tournament table are still fighting for a place in the play-offs; the clubs that lost these chances are just trying to show a good game and steal points from the leaders.

Currently 12 teams have guaranteed themselves participation in the play-offs. Dinamo Riga is among them. The names of three division winners are also known - winner of Kharlamov division is Yaroslavl's Lokomotiv, of Chernishev division - Kazan's Ak Bars and of Bobrov's division - Salavat Yulaev. Ufa's club is also the winner of the regulars! In Tarasov division two teams are still fighting for the first place - Magnitogorsk's Metallurg and CSKA.

It's nor far left 'till the relegation games. 2-3 matches are left to play for each team. The last game day is the 26th of February. The play-offs will start on March 1st.
