The Playoff, writes strange stories. From losers to heroes be factors, from supposedly safe values, unexpected risk. In the latter role, Adam Almquist took place yesterday and out of nowhere.
1:3, 12 minutes still to play, and the SCB was the launching full of good will, a further race to catch up, as so often in this Playoff. But since Adam Almquist train caught by breaking Reto Suri with a Check to the head. Five minutes plus duration of the game was the logical verdict, which was the Berner's efforts abruptly to an end. And Almquist risked locking the several game. Ironically, the Swede, he is an unfair player, in his previous 56 inserts he had totalize only 24 penalty minutes.
Zuger came too late to

on the basis of sections two and three, the success was deserved, absolutely, the shot ratio of 22:9 reflects the game of the shares to be authentic. The turning point had managed to train in the middle third, Brian Flynn had deflected a shot by Santeri Alatalo untenable to compensate, Yannick-Lennart Albrecht Zehnder completed later highways, double-pass with Yannick. Zuger were in the Final arrived, but you had to say, Alatalo, the sense image. In the first third of man who has throughout the season on most of the ice age in the Zugern had committed a series of unusual errors. One led to the penalty, the Berns Slovenian Jan Mursak finally see value on the Backhand to hit the lead ausnützte.
Endorphin or energy, it is the question that always arises when two Teams are faced with different loads in the rounds before. And judging from the first third, had not done the EVZ, the one-week break since the end of the series against Lausanne. Hardly a dangerous shot, he brought the case of his future goalie Leonardo Genoni, the SCB does not seemed to be the muscles to feel 45 hours after the final siren against Biel is still negative. Also, the absence of Thomas Rüfenacht – the national players had to travel for personal reasons in the United States – did not have a negative impact. Kari Jalonen had changed from Tuesday to three lines.
One of the Strengths of Central Switzerland, however, is that you are undeterred in your game system, even if you even temporarily from the course. Or, as in the first third of the nervous. They let the legs continue to run, more and more, and with the intense Forechecking and the high Tempo of the SCB had more and more trouble. Understandable, 326 minutes Bern had spent in the Playoff so far, more on the ice. Five and a half games more than the train, or in other words: More time, as a train against Lugano or Lausanne needed.
21 years old yesterday, passed on the day, since the ECC reiterated in Davos, the only title in the club's history. For 21 long years, in which the train never led in a Final. Until just yesterday. Happens, as all agree, but it's still not much, been plenty of explosive action in the game. However, so far, not because of the high-rate power hockey, which can celebrate both Teams, but due to action by Garrett Roe. With the score 2:1 he had a touch of Beat Gerber on the leg, but was subsequently in such a way, as if a Fly would have looked at the Brazilian Neymar. Tristan Scherwey was then barely, and it was good that the minds of soon in the second break could cool down.
Tomorrow is a success series will go to the end of The EVZ has won all 5 previous home games in the Playoff, the Bernese on foreign ice 5 of 6.
