EV Zug – HC Lugano 5-4
Our game summary, the key player, video highlights and game statistics.
This time Zug had a hard time… but prevailed once again against Lugano and are now very close to make it to the semifinals!
At the Bossard Arena it looked like everything went south immediately for Lugano… because only 47 seconds after the first puck drop, the hosts took the lead with Reto Suri. Then, however, the Bianconeri finally showed what they are all about. Firstly they equalized with a strange goal scored by Dario Bürgler… and then were able to survive during 6 minutes shorthanded. We mean, they turned the momentum of the game in their favour… and during the early stages of the central period took the lead with Giovanni Morini!
At that point the game became crazy for a while… Zug equalized with David McIntyre, Lugano restored their lead with Raffaele Sannitz, Zug equalized once again with David McIntyre but Lugano restored their lead once again with Dario Bürgler!
The score was 3-4 and Lugano would have even deserved to extend their lead. But they failed to do so and paid a high price for that… because finally during the third period Zug increased their level of play and between the 42nd and the 48th minute of play turned the score around with Dominic Lammer and Raphael Diaz… and set the 5-4 final score!
