Bern – train 2-1
The Bernese showed morality against the leader from Central Switzerland. Even the home team did not lose a backlog. Andreas Martinsen had given Zug the lead with his 1st National League goal in the 2nd game with the kind help of SCB defender Justin Krueger (14th). But Captain Simon Moser (32nd) and Andrew Ebbett in the Powerplay (39th) turned the game in the middle third.
Both gates had been preceded by unnecessary disk losses from the guests. In addition, the Central Swiss announced bad luck with 2 goals on the goal edge. The victory of the Bernese, who were equal to the leader, was by no means stolen. Nevertheless, the “Mutzen” remain the bottom line with 6 games remaining.
Freiburg – Lakers 5: 3
After an early deficit, Gottéron seemed to be heading for a safe win at 4: 1 in the middle of the game, before the rebellious guests brought back the tension with a double strike (37./40.). In particular, Andrew Rowe’s goal from behind the goal line was hard to beat List. 2 seconds before the end of the second third the Canadian Lakers was successful with the back of Freiburg goalkeeper Reto Berra. Marc Abplanalp then secured victory with an “Empty Netter” shortly before the end.
