Our team continues its road trip with the visit to Estonian capital.

Pre-game breakdown

The Army Men did not stop in Nizhny and went to cold and windy Tallinn during the night after the game. The team practiced on the arena in the afternoon.

The roster remains unchanged: Pavel Korobkov, Mikhail Kulagin and Kyle Hines continue their post-injury rehab in Moscow.

Victor Khryapa played his 600th game in Nizhny. Andrey Vorontsevich may do the same tomorrow.

Word to the coach

Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We continue our road trip against Kalev, the team that is chasing the playoff spot. They will be definitely motivated in the game. We have to be focused, determined and competitive from the beginning until the end.
