Biel's game will be the Tempo, a lot of movement, very balanced ice times for all four lines, and remarkably short inserts that Go well with flying and still accelerating.

As Brunner celebrated in game 2 the 2:2 compensation hit, he climbed onto the Berne Tor, the fit. Also, Brunner stresses the joy to be a part of the Biel team: "You feel you also, if you are sitting on the bench and the other lines are watching."
Törmänens game in Bern
And then there was this Episode here, the documented might be the ease with which the EHC Biel acts: A tactics-Gag – in the middle of the game.
Törmänen is known to be not a head coach, the lines, the fights are promoted, although this play at home, if he has the last change in the case of Game interruptions, his rights would be. Berns Kari Jalonen works completely different, this is a "Line-Matching" belongs in the games in the Postfinance Arena to his solid Coaching methods.
Now like this:
happened on Tuesday in game 1 - The game begins. Törmänen starts with the storm-Trio Künzle/Diem/Riat, Jalonen sent according to Scherwey/home/Sciaroni for the first Bully:
Only 14 seconds to the first Game, because Törmänen already sends new striker on the ice: Rajala/Kärki/Pedretti to take, according to Jalonen responds and brings Bieber/Ebbet/Mursak:
- Only a 14-seconds-of-use? Strange ... there Can be but, perhaps Törmänen planned a special Bully-variant in the offensive zone? Nothing there! Because after exactly two minutes, this happens: Törmänen sends Künzle/Diem/Riat to the Bully, Jalonen responds accordingly with Scherwey/home/Sciaroni:
- Just 16 seconds later, it comes back to the Game, but Törmänen actually changes once again, brings Rajala/Kärki/Pedretti. To send for Jalonen, the characters, the Bieber/Ebbet/Mursak was on the ice:
- Now 11 seconds just until the next Bully. And Törmänen brings a lot of new people: Künzle/Diem/Riat back after a Mini-break on the ice. Actually, Jalonen would counter normally with Scherwey/home/Sciaroni, but the SCB Coach the Whole thing is now too colorful. He brings instead, Moser/Arcobello/Rüfenacht, so that the line may his Topskorer finally time for a Bully ran:
"around A bit
silly ..." Short assignments of around 30 instead of 45 seconds in honor, you are part of Törmänens battle plan – but in Shifts of only 16, 14 and 11 seconds right at the start of the game? Not yet ...
But, Törmänen does exactly this: It allows a Spässchen on Berner cost. Or as he puts it: "We know that the Bernese at home, look for these lines-Matchups. I wanted to be around a little
silly ... " Funny a Spässchen Yes it is only when we see the reaction of the counterpart. So Törmänen looked after this short exchange jumble of eager in the direction of Jalonen and the Bernese Bank: "I saw a few questioning glances in our direction: "don't know What they do?""
After that was done, funny, Törmänen, the "normal" Coaching, he renounced in consequence of this "Short-Spässchen". Finally, the hockey was there, Yes, to win the game. (By the way: After 7 minutes, Biel has already led 2:0 ...)
"so what I have thought about it yet!"
As a Coaching stunt in a Playoff semi-final, the start time back ... Törmänen in the negative not even: "Yes, this could have a negative impact, but we did it just ..."
This Episode shows, on the one hand, Törmänens Schalk, on the other hand, but also his confidence in his players and in their own Strengths. The pace of Biel's, this Fresh – all of this is also allows accurate due to the generally short inserts and the solidarity distributed ice age.
Actually, should be able to pull Törmänens Team is now, take the longer the series, benefits from it. Or not? Törmänen thought for a long time, until there is a reply, the corners of the mouth go up always until he said finally: "you Know, I've thought about it yet!" Yes, of course, we now believe ...
