Team Canada, the latest from 2015 to 2017, is always the winner of the tournament, the Spengler Cup again in the Final. In the semi-final, the Canadians defeated the Ice Tigers Nürnberg 4:2.
Already in the preliminary round, the Canadians had won thanks to four Goals in the second section against Nürnberg 6:2. In the semi-final, they made an even earlier short process. After 13 minutes and two Goals and an Assist from SC-Bern-striker Zach Boychuk led the Team Canada 3:0. After 23 minutes, 4:0. In the Finish, the Nuremberg came through the third ever tournament goal of the former Davosers Brandon Buck on 2:4.
the collapse of The Germans after the great 3:1-success on the previous day against Metallurg Magnitogorsk was not surprising. The Ice Tigers denied within 67 hours of the fourth game. After the exhausting game against Metallurg the batteries were empty and they were charging within 21 hours.

Four wins in the series, the Canadians, the start since 1984 in Davos, Switzerland, from 1995 to 1998. Since the semi-final defeat four years ago against Geneva-Servette (5:6) was won by Team Canada at the Spengler Cup in 15 of 16 Games. Only in 2016, they lost a first round game against Dinamo Minsk (4:7). (sda)
