GENÈVE SERVETTE HC
Genève Servette are coming off the 2-1 home defeat suffered against Bern that followed the two consecutive wins earned against ZSC Lions and Lausanne. The Eagles won 4 of their last 6 games and are in good form. However, they lost 3 of their last 5 home games… we mean, Patrick Emond’s guys – who are second to no one when it comes to team spirit – can improve their home record.
Bienne are coming off the 3-2 home win earned against Rapperswil that followed the 4-3 overtime road win earned against Zug. The Seeländers, who even won in Sweden against Frölunda mid-week in the Champions Hockey League, won 3 of their last 4 National League games. Noteworthy, moreover, the fact that Antti Törmänen’s troops won 3 of their last 4 games played on the road.
The last time that a game between Genève Servette and Bienne played at les Vernets went to overtime/shootout dates back to September 16th, 2014. That last time, over 5 years ago, the Eagles earned a 5-4 shootout win. Ahren Spylo, Dragan Umicevic, Gaëtan Haas and Oliver Kamber scored for the visitors during the 60 minutes of play while the hosts’ scorers were Alexandre Picard (2), Romain Loeffel and Daniel Rubin. During the shootout series then, Juraj Simek and Romain Loeffel earned the extra point for the troops back then coached by Chris McSorley.
