EV Zug – SC Bern 2-3 (OT)
Our game summary, the key player, video highlights and game statistics.
Bern earned a 3-2 overtime win in Zug and therefore, starting from Tuesday night, a very exciting best-of-five series will start!
It’s gonna be very exciting because last night we could assist to a very nice hockey game, a game that was surely worth a Final! Zug were better during power-play situations… Bern were overall better when the two teams were even strength… there were emotions… physical play… we mean, there was everything to gift the fans with an exciting game!
The first period ended goalless and then during the central period fireworks started in terms of goals. Bern took the lead with Gaëtan Haas 3 minutes and 56 seconds into the second period… shortly after that, Zug took advantage of their first power-play opportunity of the night to equalize with Dennis Everberg…. then, shortly after the half-an-hour mark, the Bears restored their lead thanks to Jan Mursak… but then finally, during the latest stages of the central period, Dennis Eververg again equalized for Zug again during powerplay situation!
When you score a goal during the latest stages of the second period, oftentimes it’s a godsend for the morale. And in fact, Zug came back after the second break and were overall quite dangerous. Kari Jalonen’s troops, however, proved once again to have some real character. And, most and above all, were able to prevent Zug from scoring during a power-play opportunity during the last 5 minutes of tha game…
So we moved on to the overtime period. When, also a bit inexplicably, it looked like Zug forgot to come back on the ice after the third break… Bern for their part came back on the ice, and how! The Bears created few scoring chances – they even had a goal disallowed, rightly so – and finally in the 64th minute of play earned the win thanks to Gregory Sciaroni’s goal!
Overall we repeat ourselves… what a great game between two great teams!
Dennis Everberg (EV Zug)
Zug lost the game but Dennis Everberg was impressive. He scored twice… and thanks to his speed and size he was a constant danger for Bern!
