SEASON HEAD TO HEAD
Click on the desired game to read the recap.
It’s not up to as to talk about the coronavirus emergency. It’s certainly not our place to undermine any decision of the authorities. When it comes to sport instead and considering this delicate situation right now, we let ourselves express our thoughts. Wouldn’t it be better to stop the season until March 15th or further notice? After that, if possible, play the last regular season games and the playoffs with best-of-3 or best-of-5 series. Otherwise, maybe cancelling the whole season would be wise. To play games behind closed doors means to distort this beautiful sport. Hockey is FOR fans after all.
Rapperswil and Lugano face each other for the sixth time this season. The Bianconeri won 4 of the 5 head to head.
Let’s see the two teams’ form.
SC RAPPERSWIL-JONA LAKERS
The last game
Rapperswil is coming off the 3-2 overtime home win earned against Lausanne that followed the 5-2 road defeat suffered against Bern. The Lakers are in great shape and won 2 of the last 3 games. Noteworthy the fact that they are undefeated at home since 4 games and that at the SGKB Arena they won 4 of the last 5.
Lugano is coming off the 6-0 home defeat suffered against Bern that extended its losing-streak to 3 games. We mean, these defeats came at the worst possible ttime. However, thanks to the fact that Bern lost in Davos on Tuesday, the Bianconeri have now their destiny almost in their own hands again… if they win against Rappi and Ambrì in fact, they will miss the playoffs only if they will be tied on points with Bern and Lausanne at the end of the regular season.
Rapperswil and Lugano face each other behind closed doors. Without fans. That’s so sad.
