It is Saturday night, after 22 o'clock, the striker of the ZSC Lions gear to the Corner, the Arena is in the Wardrobe, freshly showered and brooding. As the Leader of the Zurich travelled to Ticino, to increase the lead on many of the closer spaced tracker in the best case, this is against a HC Lugano, of the was for weeks as the crisis club of the League, because he had lost ten of their last 12 games.

But now he has wrestled the table first with fighting funds and the annoying floor man: "We have won two battles, we were us, even after the bullies very badly, in which we supported a lot to us too little."

it Is also a feeling of fullness?

Maybe it is a little normal, human weakness that has overwhelmed the team in the last few days and weeks. Success can, of course, also make sick of it. Previously, the Zurich had strung together several strong games together, had convinced with a lot of game and run with joy, and as a reward for the top of the ersiegt.

"I don't looked the least gross on the table. Now I have to ZSC again"-wings, Simon Bodenmann

After a 7:2 at home against exactly this Lugano, the Ticino was less than a month ago finally for the crisis club, which is just a really compelling game succeeded, the 5:0 at the first tracker in Davos last Saturday, ironically, in the only game, in which the early loss of 1st place threatened. "I don't looked the least gross on the table. Now I must again," says Bodenmann.

The ZSC Lions showed typical symptoms of a successful team, the away in small increments to precisely the game that distinguished him previously. Because Zurich is also in Lugano phases in which you dominate the opponent, as if you had pressed on the button.

you cash in on but also three similar goals, to go to which always simply the assignment in the Defensive seems to be lost. "And that is a shame, because these are precisely the things about which we are talking," says Rikard Grönborg.

"Then you will not be rewarded"

The Lions coach praises the opponent, and this urgency in the game, the Ticino, which is described in football language with "Desperation", of desperation, is meant in here is the unconditional willingness to fight. "We can, but today I saw it almost exclusively in the last few minutes, and this is too little," said Grönborg.

And it is hardly meant to be, if Grönborg says also: "It would have helped if more players had something contributed."

This 1:3 in Lugano, it is the last game of the Zurich before the national team break. "Of course you can't do a whole season at Top level play," says Bodenmann. "That no one has yet managed." But still, he didn't want to with a good feeling in the free week, so a "Sch...game had come now". And, Yes, also about this stay conclusion: "The upset, that sucks."
