Two Ranking Round’s games are scheduled for tonight.
ZSC LIONS vs HC DAVOS
Zürich and Davos are used to face each other in the playoffs… yet tonight, they’ll face each other in a different and even “sad” context. The Lions won both Ranking Round games, firstly they earned a 2-1 home shootouts win against Gottéron and then went to win 3-2 on the road in Rapperswil. Quite the opposite than Davos, that are coming off the two cosecutive defeats suffered against Rapperswil (1-3) and Fribourg Gottéron (3-7).
HC FRIBOURG GOTTÉRON vs SC RAPPERSWIL-JONA LAKERS
Who knows what Fribourg Gottéron will think tonight when will host Rapperswil… the painful home defeat suffered against Rapperswil few weeks ago in fact, was one of the “crucial ones” that prevented the Dragons from making the playoffs. Mark French’s troops firstly lost 1-2 after shootouts in Zürich and then won 7-3 at home against Davos in this Ranking Round. Rappi for their part firstly went to win 3-1 on the road in Davos and then suffered a 2-3 home defeat against the ZSC Lions.
Good luck and… have fun 🙂
