Avangard Omsk has the best defensive line in KHL after 3 rounds. The offensive line is close to the best in the whole league with players like Ryan Spooner, Vladimir Tkachev, and Reid Boucher, who already scored 4 from 9 goals. They played three home games in a row winning against Novosibirsk 2-1, Yekaterinburg 2-1 (after overtime), and Barys Astana 4-1 in the last round. I love to oppose Amur Khabarovsk when they are on a long road trip. This is their 5 straight away game, traveling from Khabarovsk (far east near the China and Japan border) to Moscow, Tolyatti, and Omsk. They have 3 defeats in a row and only 1 win against Vityaz Balashikha in the opening round. Usually, the fatigue will do the job after 5 long trips in just 9 days, where big losses are expected. Last season, they were the worst away team with 19 defeats in 34 matches. In their mutual matches at G-Drive Arena, Avangard Omsk has 9 victories in a row (one after overtime).
