The Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) Conference Finals are the Eastern Conference and Western Conference Championship series of the KHL. The Conference Finals are best-of-seven series. The two series are played after the first and second rounds of the playoffs and before the Gagarin Cup Finals. The final two teams in the Eastern Conference and Western Conference face off. The series are the conference equivalents of the Gagarin Cup Finals. The conferences were established during the second season of competition. In the inaugural season there were no conferences, only four divisions. The respective winners of the Eastern and Western Conference Finals receive the Eastern Conference winner cup (Russian: Кубок Победителю конференции Восток, Kubok Pobeditelyu konferentsii Vostok) and Western Conference winner cup.(Russian: Кубок Победителю конференции Запад, Kubok Pobeditelyu konferentsii Zapad).[1]
