Amur Khabarovsk and Sibir Novosibirsk will take the ice on Saturday in the only game on the KHL slate.
While several NHL players have signed with KHL teams as a result of the ongoing lockout, Saturday's game does not feature any of them.
Sibir Novosibirsk (9-9, 37 points) is clinging to eighth place in the East Conference standings with a slim two-point lead over Barys. HC Sibir has fared well in shootouts this season, with three wins and just one loss. The club is coming off a long layoff, having last taken the ice against on Nov. 1, in a 5-3 win over Lev.
Amur Khabarovsk (6-17, 23 points) is in 11th place in the East Conference, just one spot above basement-dwelling Avtomobilist (3-16, 16 points). HC Amur lost their last game against Metallurg Nk, 4-2, on Nov. 15.
Game time is scheduled for 2 a.m. ET at LDS "Siberia" on Saturday.
