Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Dynamo Moscow vs SKA

Dynamo Moscow

Aleksey Kudashov continues to trust the youth, having built a completely combat-ready team from the hockey players at his disposal. The pessimistic forecasts that rained down on the team after the summer sale of the stars have not yet come true. On the contrary, if several past white-and-blue championships were entirely dependent on the game form of Shipachev's first link, now each of the game links poses a threat. Serious progress is observed in Dzhioshvili, Rashevsky, Sushko, Muranov, who were mainly used as rotation players last season.

A slight decline in the blue and white began in the second half of October, when Dynamo lost three matches in a row (Sibir 3-4, CSKA 1-3 and Lokomotiv 2-4). An unpleasant series was interrupted in Minsk, when the Muscovites won the game against Belarusian teammates with a minimum score of 1-0. The situation with injured players is somewhat disturbing. Now there are four hockey players (Menell, Yakimov, Igumnov, Efremov) in the blue and white infirmary, each of which is an iron player of the base. Nevertheless, Dynamo are confidently in the top three strongest teams in the Western Conference, with 31 points scored, sharing second place with fellow countrymen from CSKA.


And it is SKA that leads not only in the West, but also in the consolidated standings of the KHL. The St. Petersburg club demonstrates enviable stability, never losing two matches in a row in two months of the championship. In total, the army team has two defeats in 22 matches played, one of which was inflicted on them by the hockey players of the capital Dynamo. It is not surprising that such results have already allowed the army team to seriously break away from their direct competitors. At the moment, the St. Petersburg club has 41 points, which is 10 points more than CSKA and Dynamo, and 8 points more than the best team in the Eastern Conference - Magnitogorsk Metallurg.

So far, SKA looks like a team without weaknesses. Alexander Samonov, who was injured at the start of the season, was confidently replaced at the gate by young Dmitry Nikolaev, who immediately became one of the best goalkeepers in the League in terms of the percentage of reflected shots. Alexander Nikishin perfectly joined the defensive formations, who, together with experienced Igor Ozhiganov, is one of the most productive defenders of the League. At the same time, the main star of the army club, and, perhaps, of the entire championship as a whole, was Marat Khairullin, who came from Neftekhimik. The 26-year-old striker has already scored 23 points (13 + 10), and according to this indicator he is second in the League, losing one point only to Masek from Avtomobilist.
