SC Bern – Genève Servette HC 4-3 (OT)
Our game summary, the key player, video highlights and game statistics.
Once again, the overtime was required to establish the winner of the game between Bern and Genève Servette… Once again, Bern took a 2-goals lead… Once again, Genève Servette were able to comeback… and finally, for the third time, the Mutzen won the game and now need only one more victory to make it to the semifinals!
Kari Jalonen’s troops win in game-5 is well-deserved. They performed well and took a 2-goals lead thanks to Daniele Grassi who scored twice during the early stages of the central period. Genève Servette, however, once again made their fans proud. The Eagles never gave up and, always during the central period, were able to turn the score around with Arnaud Jacquement during a power-play opportunity, Noah Rod who scored shorthanded and again with Arnaud Jacquemet during a power-play opportunity!
At that point though, even Bern showed that have some real character. The Mutzen came back after the break with every intention to equalize and successfully did it with André Heim at 9 minutes to the end!
Anything could happen then… especially when the overtime period started. This time the players were magnanimous towards the fans and kept them at the PostFinance Arena only for 7 minutes and 59 seconds more… that is, the time required by Yannik Burren to score the game winning goal for Bern!
Daniele Grassi (SC Bern)
Once again a great performance for Daniele Grassi who even scored two goals!
