SKA Petersburg vs Medvescak by Sors
SKA St. Petersburg is the hottest team in the KHL in this moment, as the hosts seek their eleventh straight win and sixteenth in seventeen games at Ice Palace in Saint Petersburg.
The hosts seem simply unstoppable in offense lately, having totaled 45 goals during the ten-game winning streak, 29 of them in six home games against CSKA Moscow (2-0), Jokerit (6-0), Dinamo Minsk (6-2), Dinamo Riga (4-1), Podolsk (5-1) and Slovan Bratislava on Tuesday (6-1).
Ilya Kovalchuk is in red-hot form with 5 goals and 5 assists in the last six games, Vadim Schipachev contributed 2 goals and 6 assists in this period, while Evgenii Dadonov – 2 goals and 3 assists.
Medvescak Zagreb comes from a 1-3 loss in the visit to CSKA Moscow on Tuesday, tenth for this team in fourteen away games this season (3-1-2-8 27/45) and fourth consecutive after those against Dynamo Moscow (1-5), Podolsk (2-3) and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl (1-2).
The guests have obvious problems in defense in the first half of the season, having conceded 70 goals in twenty-four games (more than any other team in the Western Conference with the exception of Slovan Bratislava) and three or more goals in six of the last seven away games.
On the other hand, Medvescak Zagreb is one of the three teams who managed to score more than three goals against SKA St. Petersburg this season (5-4 overtime win in Zagreb on Oct. 2), which is not a big surprise actually, considering the tradition in the games between these two teams (seven of the previous nine games between SKA St. Petersburg and Medvescak Zagreb have ended with six or more goals).
SKA St. Petersburg and over 5.50 goals is my choice here.
