Freescoring Jokerit ready to cut loose again at Helsinki home
Torpedo's defence in for another testing time
Jokerit v Torpedo
Goals could be on the cards in Helsinki as an offence that can't stop scoring takes on a defence that crumpled in Moscow last time out.
Hosts Jokerit have scored 20 goals in their last five matches, while Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod's fine run of three straight shutout wins was brought to a crashing halt in a 4-0 defeat to CSKA.
Torpedo keeper Stanislav Gamilov had gone 160 minutes without letting in a goal but was beaten inside 30 seconds on Sunday, and his side could have fallen to a heavier defeat had CSKA kept their foot on the gas throughout.
Jokerit made it nine straight wins - one in overtime - with a 3-1 success over Severstal on Sunday and the run included an impressive 5-1 victory over Spartak last week and a 4-0 success over CSKA.
The Finnish side's success has highlighted the depth of their squad - teenage rookie Eeli Tolvanen came to the fore on Sunday with the winning goal and an assist while Pekka Jormakka hit a hat-trick in the previous outing against Spartak.
They have games in hand over the sides above them and look set to move up the standings with another comfortable win.
