In the Swiss championship cashed in Davos in home games, ten times in a row defeats. In extremis, the Davos ended under New Coach Harijs Witolinsch immediately prior to Christmas against Ambri-Piotta after a 0:2 behind until two minutes before the end of this series.
The Spengler Cup Davos has now won two home games in a row: On the 3:2 from Thursday against the Ice Tigers from Nürnberg is a 3:1 against the Czech top team Ocelari Trinec followed in the quarter-finals.
To say that the people of Davos were after four Wins in the last five Games on the mountain, would be premature. The win over Trinec of the HCD owed primarily to his reinforcement to players. Linus Klasen scored the 1:0 and in the 48. Minute the 2:1. At his parent club, the HC Lugano, sass Klasen in five of the last six games to be surplus under the rug.
support of Simion
Dario Simion of Leader train, when changing from Davos to train the release for the Spengler Cup in the contract in writing, prepared both Goals. Andres Ambühl, the Captain of the HCD, swirled with Klasen, and Simion on the ice.
Ambühl denied 45. Spengler Cup game, and ran more often than any other in modern times, the tradition of the tournament. The final point Dino Wieser put in the very last tenth of a second with a long shot into the empty goal.
Linus Klasen was definitely one of the match winner of the HC Davos . Goaltender Anders Lindbäck (27 saves) was also one of the most important players. Lindbäck won for the first time since the 5:1 of the HCD in the indoor stadium against the ZSC, the game. At the time, the last time Arno Del Curto was at the gang of the HCD. All the Victories since then, tending Gilles the gate Senn.
Senn will come on Sunday night against KalPa Kuopio back to the kiss on the Hand. Coach Witolinsch sent out before the quarter-final clear signals that he wants to achieve at the home tournament and with the semi-final qualification is still not satisfied. With a view to the decisive tournament games Witolinsch spared, for example, against Trinec Topskorer Inti Pestoni, who had counted on Thursday at 3:1 over Nuremberg, one of the best actors.
Trinec never gave up on
Davos played very well - had to do but also. The Czechs never gave up. Alone in the last five minutes, the Czechs have three excellent opportunities to equalise with messenger. The bad luck bird of the game, Martin Ruzicka, the Czech world champion, multiple champion and multiple Skorer-king. Ruzicka would have been able to Trinec in the first section and twice in the final section in the lead shoot.
The completion of happiness, but he did not hold. A series remained so: never in the HCD failed at his home tournament before the semi-final.
