As of the cut off the last table comes from the Ticino in the Swiss Arena. The fan is to the last seat empty, which means that zero (0) spectators travelled from Biasca. And yet 4544 visitors were in the hall. This means nothing else than that the EHC Kloten itself is attractive enough to attract visitors. He needs no special Poster.
Because this team has developed after a heavy month of October, with seven defeats in a row to a Team that makes its followers more than satisfied. The also - from very small exceptions, never below a certain level. And that has worked so game for game in the table to the front. Space 2 is the current Position.
a year Ago, prevailed at the same time sadness in Kloten. Now a League lower, however, looks much very well. The team has won nine games in a row, the League record this season. The best brand had heard until yesterday Langenthal, the eight successes in a row, had been able to celebrate (but twice in the extension had to). Kloten repeated flawless 27 points. Throughout the month of December, the Team has won only. Of the last 18 Games of their 16. There are in the Swiss League Teams of different caliber, and the other record marks. The Ticino Rockets are the worst example, however, the longest loss streak for the EHC Winterthur through a Phase of ten defeats in a row.
8:1, 8:0 and 5:0 the results are Kloten against this inferiore farm team, which would have earned according to sporting criteria no place in the second highest League. After 30 seconds, Jeffrey Füglister scored the 1:0. After a rather restrained Phase, the Team decided, however, to entertain the spectators with good actions and an additional four gates, is appealing. It wasn't easy to keep the concentration high.
The good development
The team, according to coach Rötheli is a development and a process through. "Coaches, players, the life in the wardrobe, the mix of young and old works. We come to each other, as is necessary for a Team to have success." Now, the Team is in, for example, where Rötheli wanted to have it. This also confirms that he has assessed the players and their skills correctly, the roles are so distributed, that much fits together.
Much of the positive change the exchange, which sport made-in-chief Felix Hollenstein. A second foreign striker is now set. With Joren van Pottelberghe a Goalie came in the Swiss League the number 1. And with Jussi, a man with over 1000 NHL-Jokinen Play day-to-day lived as an example for what it takes to be a hockey player successful.
Jokinen also brought new ideas in terms of the numbers game. If you want to criticize something to the end of the year, it is the efficiency on the Powerplay. With Jokinen it worked outstanding in this discipline, was the Kloten a leader, even after Jokinens farewell. But with the failure of all foreigners are much the straightness is lost. In Visp, Fabian Sutter scored the only Powerplay Goal the last few games. Yesterday, Ryan MacMurchy and Jack Combs were at it again, there was no Überzahltor. Even at 5:3. There is still room for improvement.
Now, Kloten in a roundabout way, is reached in about there, where many saw the Relegated before the season. But who would have thought, for example, that a veteran is one of the key players, whose career was actually over?
Fabian Sutter wore yesterday, as MacMurchy, the helmet of Topskorers. The Center, which is next summer, 37 years old, has developed into the clear Leader of the field players. Behind him, Marchon, and Patrick Obrist show with Marc on those in the younger range of their qualities, Jeffrey Füglister is with 15 hits, the most successful shooter.
there, Too: Young and old work together perfectly. The mixture in the Team.
Kloten is not much time left to enjoy the new year. On the last day of the old year is still in training, on 2. February also. Because already at the 3. January comes next, with a hefty program: It follows the appearance in the train (actually at 15: 45), then the next day the game in Weinfelden against Thurgau, on Sunday (18.30) for the home game against Olten and back on Tuesday before a private audience of the appearance against the Leader of La Chaux-de-Fonds. Four games within six days - in comparison, a Playoff-rhythm looks downright cozy. (Tages-Anzeiger)
