So little goals like never before
Although the Davos another day of rest was denied, the starting position for the last Spengler Cup day interesting. Since the introduction of the new mode, with six Teams in the HCD achieved the semi-finals. If this series does not rip even under the Coach Harijs Witolinsch against the Leader of the Czech championship (scored in the first two tournament games only two goals), meeting in Davos in the semi-final not to Canada and Metallurg Magnitogorsk, the two top favorites, but to the Finns in Kuopio, the national championship will be just as unsatisfactory as the HCD in the National League.
The canadian runaway victory in the final group game sugar, the first-round goal scoring records. Never less goals were scored at the Spengler Cup. In the first five tournament games by 13 goals plus 2 penalty resulted in just shooting. Thanks to the canadian 6:2-success fell with a total of 23 goals in six tournament only one match to play less than in 2014, as the striker had also jammed and the Goalies had suppressed the Event the stamp.

A 0:0 after 60 minutes: not given at the Spengler Cup a long time since the introduction of the final game in 1986. On new year's eve morning, 1980 Spartak Moscow filed a 0:0 against Vitkovice at Spengler Cup victory. Three years before the game of the Swiss national team against AIK Stockholm because of snow if it was cancelled, then cancelled, and with 0:0 score.
Jokinen was responsible for the decision
geek Kuopio earned the victory. The Finns proved to be the better Team (27:18 shots on goal), but miss often the direct train to the gate, or acted in the Slot in front of the gate a bit too playful. One of these beautiful combinations, but resulted in the 63. Minute (62:47) to the winning goal by Captain Tommi Jokinen.
Not only because of the scoreless regulation time, the game offered a Special: Metallurg stormed father Dennis Platonov (37) and son Yuri Platonov (18) in the same attack formation. For the first Time in the almost 100-year history of the Spengler Cup, father and son stood together in a Team on the ice. KalPa Kuopio managed this feat four years ago in the Finnish championship but also: at the Time, stormed Sami Kapanen, now club owner and Trainer at KalPa, with his son Kasperi Kapanen (currently plays for Toronto in the NHL) in a straight line.
