Atlant Moscow Oblast – Amurskie Tigry Match Prediction | 10-09-2019 12:00

During the 200506 season, the team relocated within the Moscow Oblast, from Voskresensk to Mytishchi. In the spring of 1998, the status of the team changed, representing not only the city of Voskresensk but also the entire Moscow Oblast. This event took place on their 45th anniversary. Following this, the team changed its name to Atlant, prior to its inclusion in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Top eight in each conference make the playoffs. To further cut down on travel, the two road games against each opponent will be played back-to-back (this means of course that the two home games against each opponent will also be played back-to-back). As for the schedule itself, it will follow a fairly easy format, as each team faces each other team in its conference four times twice at home and twice away for a total of 64 games per club. There is no inter-conference play during the MHL regular season.

The MHL team is being re-named ORG Junior Beijing, but will play 6500 km. That may sound a bit strange at first, but it is actually not unprecedented at all; Kunlun Red Stars junior team played its inaugural season, 2017-18, in Riga before moving to Harbin for the most recent campaign. ORG Junior will play at the 1300-seat Volvo Sports Centre in the Latvian capital. Switching locations for 2019-20 is Kunlun Red Star Beijings junior team, which played as KRS Heilongjiang in Harbin, China, last season. northwest of the Chinese capital in Riga, Latvia. The other team moving is MHK Dynamo Moscow (junior club, unsurprisingly, of the KHLs Dynamo Moscow); they will keep the Moscow part of their name, but are trundling a couple of hundred kilometres up the E105 to the city of Tver.

Both HK Rostov and KRS-Beijing will slot into the West Conference, with the Chinese side in Division A and Rostov in Division B. The remainder of the 54-game regular season will be made up with games against teams in the clubs own division. The season format has actually not changed drastically from what I described in this post here. In the meantime, each team will play each other team in its own conference twice, and each team in the other conference EITHER once at home OR once away. That means that the West will have 18 teams and the East 16; well see if there is a realignment after this coming season. After the Silk Road Cup wraps up on the 18th of February, the top eight in each conference will make the Petrov Cup playoffs, with the division-winners seeded first and second in each conference as is standard.

New team Sakhalinskie Akuly will play their first game on the road, against Dynamo St. Petersburg on September 5th, and will open at home on September 14th against Kapitan Stupino. The 2019-20 MHL regular season opens on September 3rd, when defending Kharlamov Cup champions Loko Yaroslavl host Almaz Cherepovets. The season wraps up on March 6th, with the playoffs slated to start on March 10th.

That same financial crisis forced the team's reserve squad, the Golden Amur Khabarovsk, to withdraw from the Asia League where it played for the 2004-05 season. A relegation to the Vysshaya Liga occurred in 2004 when the mining company that funds the club had financial difficulties. The team could finish the season and take part in the playoffs, however; they finished third in regular season standings and failed to reach the playoffs finals. In 1996, Khabarovsk promoted to the Russian Superleague. The Tigers could promote back to the top level in 2006.

In three years, Khimik was graduated to the top league of the Soviet Union. Three bronze medal results between 1965 and 1984 were capitulated in 1989 when the team achieved silver under prestigious head coach Vladimir Vasiliyev, a major accomplishment for a team from a small town. More impressive is how much successful homegrown talent has come out of the Khimik system, withs names including future Stanley Cup winners such as Igor Larionov and Valeri Kamensky. The old team traced its history back to 1953. Leading the team was playing-coach Nikolay Epshtein. Atlant was founded in 2005 when a team (Khimik) based in Voskresensk was relocated to Mytishchi. Immediate success allowed Khimik to play in the Championship of the Soviet Union.
