The ice-skating club Bern remains, thanks to its away the strength to continue the race in the most. The Bernese were in Biel / Bienne 1:0 and made up for the semi-final series to 3:3. Bern won in these Playoffs for the fifth Time in the match and the play in just six away. The match key scene was already in the ninth Minute. Biel's defender Beat Forster had curls too far forward. He lost in the forward motion of the Puck, and lacked then the rear. Striker Mike Künzle tried to save what was to save, crashed, but twice. This led to the Berne Three-against-one Superiority in front of the Bieler Goal. Berns defender Ramon under the sander came to his second Playoff Goal.

Such errors made Bern 60 minutes. And yet, Bern was in luck: the passion, the absolute will to Win and the willingness to self-Sacrifice, the EHC Biel put to the day, would have had more than a goal worthy of. The Biel but failed to Bern's Goalie Leonardo Genoni (38 saves), came after two and a half months, finally once again to a Shutout.
Biel big opportunities
And the Bielern lacked the necessary luck. At best, the middle of the second period. Marco Pedretti was able to go solo on Leonardo Genoni. Genoni parried. The rebound fell to Mike Künzle on the floor. His final attempt would not have missed the open Goal. But the stick of defenseman Adam Almquist prevented the 1:1.
The Bieler came to many great opportunities. Marc-Antoine Pouliot had the first already in the start-up minute. Brunner would have had to compensate after 14 minutes. Four Biel could play in Overpayments. In the Finish Pedretti (46 offered again.), Defender Janis Moser (59.), twice Toni Rajala and Brunner the last of the big opportunities. Genoni had but just can't overcome.
Bad Powerplay-balance sheet
Unhappy must be Biel, in addition to the result with his Powerplay efficiency. Four numbers of chances was not enough to Powerplaytor. Out of the last ten power plays succeeded Biel only once. This is far too little, especially as the ice-skating club Bern in this balanced, still completely open for a series of six Powerplay goals scored.
The final opponent of the EV train is determined on Tuesday evening in Bern. The output in this "Belle" is completely open. Bern shone so far, playing in all the Playoff away. Home of the Bernese found the rhythm of the skill. Out of the last nine Playoff home games in the home Arena resulted in just three wins - one against the ZSC Lions (the semi-final series 2018), Servette (quarter-final in 2019) and Biel (semi-final in 2019).
