We will present you, from now until the end of the playoffs, in this semi-serious column, the quotes that in our opinion particularly suit the eight teams who are battling to become Swiss Champions!
This column will be published regularly…
SC BERN vs EHC BIEL-BIENNE 0-2
“Don’t treat animals as animals. Treat them as living beings. That’s what they are!” – Anthony Douglas Williams
Hurting animals and/or to make them suffer it’s something shameful for the whole mankind. Yet, sometimes it happens. Last night, against the Bears, Bienne scored the equalizer during the final stages of the game and then won it during the overtime period. We mean, they made a Bear suffer and that’s outrageous. Bern should fill a report… the Seeländers should be charged with mistreatment of animals!
“I learn from my mistakes. It’s a very painful way to learn, but without pain, the old saying is, there’s no gain!” – Johnny Cash
Bienne are deservedly 2-0 ahead in the semifinal against Bern. Mh… does this ring a bell? 12 months ago, at the same stage, the Seeländers were 2-0 ahead in the semifinal against Lugano. During game-3 then, they even took a 3-goals lead… but then we all know how it ended. It was painful… but without pain, the old saying is, there’s no gain, right? Well then again, if you’re a supersticious fan… touch wood!
EV ZUG vs LAUSANNE HC 1-1
“There is always a first time for everything!” – Melissa de la Cruz
Zug lost game-2 of the semifinal in Lausanne and therefore suffered their first defeat in the 2019 playoffs. 5-4 after overtime period, the final score in the Lions Vaudois’ favour… and just to say, the Bulls were able to comeback from 2-goals down in the third period. It wasn’t enough though as afterwards Lausanne won it in the overtime period. There is always a first time for everything, after all…
“I’d say he’s like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde type of person!” – Curtis Deloatch
Whenever Lausanne disappoint us… then impress us during the next game thanks to the players’ real character. The Lions Vaudois went from the “snooze festival” performance delivered in game-1 at the Bossard Arena to the exellent performance delivered in game-2 at the Malley 2.0. It’s not the first time this season that they do something like this… we mean, Lausanne are seriously the modern version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde!
