ZSC Lions – HC Ambri-Piotta 4:2
Here you can read the game in the ticker!
The game: The Lions start well, quickly score two goals. Both go to the account of the Krüger line, which coach Grönborg put back together as it once was by ordering Hollenstein back into the second storm. But when Perlini shortened in a power play with a shot that whistled Goalie Waeber around the ears, the Zurich team froze. Next penalty, next hit. Long a bank this season, Lions boxing is now a mortgage. The Ticino, who need a win to stay in the pre-playoff race, are picking up speed and developing a lot of pull on goal.
But Waeber holds tight. In the midst of the general uncertainty in Zurich, something happens that one could hardly have expected: Roman Wick meets. The last time the long-time goal getter scored a goal, the world was still more or less in order. That was on December 6, 2019 against the SCRJ Lakers. After that, Wick remained 59 games without scoring.
Now the 35-year-old is back on the Tor Bulletin. He’s saving the first goal, he said jokingly a few days ago, thinking of the playoffs. But he could hardly have found a better time for his goal premiere. Because the fourth defeat in the fourth duel against Ambri would have missed the ZSC playoff chances another blow. Ambri doesn’t have to blame herself. And you had to reckon with missing the pre-playoffs after the bankruptcy against the Lakers. (sr)
The best – Roman Wick (ZSC Lions). The burden of goallessness finally falls off the shoulder of the veteran. His efforts are finally being rewarded.
The plum – Jannik Fischer (Ambri). Pays the penalty that leads to 2: 4.

EV Zug – HC Davos 4: 2
Here you can read the game in the ticker!
The game: The Grisons are hot. Because in purely mathematical terms, they could still climb into the top 6 and thus secure a place in the playoffs. So the duel against qualifying winners Zug is explosive.
This is probably one of the reasons why the emotions with HCD trainer Christian Wohlwend go through when the 1-0 after a positive on-ice decision after the video study is denied (12th minute). Because Herzog falls on the way to the EVZ housing without the influence of Zgraggen and then hinders goalie Genoni, the hit does not count. Wohlwend’s verbal dropout results in a penalty, which, however, has no consequences.
After their 1-0 win, Zug missed numerous opportunities to extend their lead even further (Albrecht, Thorell, Simion, Kovar). A misunderstanding between Abdelkader and Captain Diaz opens the door for Herzog to equalize. The HCD striker cannot be asked twice.
Thanks to a sugar pass from Corvi, Davos is again in the front. But as is so often the case when the EVZ needs a goal, it delivers one as if it were the easiest exercise in the world. Straightforward and efficient. The 2: 2 is already Klingberg’s tenth scorer point in his last four games, his decision maker into the empty goal with it the eleventh.
Before that, Palushaj does not bring the disc out of the danger zone and Senteler can simply insert it to 3-2. (NV)
The best – Carl Klingberg (train). Decisive for the match with his goals, tirelessly, toil in front and behind.
The plum – Teemu Turunen (Davos). You can hardly see him against dominant teams, without any influence on the game.
The goals: 23. Abdelkader (Martschini) 1-0. 31. Duke 1: 1. 48. M. Wieser (Ambühl, Corvi) 1: 2. 50. Klingberg (Zehnder, Kovar) 2: 2. 57th Senteler (Abdelkader, Stadler) 3: 2. 59. Klingberg 4: 2 (into the empty goal).
HC Fribourg-Gottéron – SCL Tigers 6:2
The game: Julien Sprunger (35) managed just one goal in the last 16 games. And it was still an own goal by Zug’s Dario Allenspach. But now Gottéron’s captain strikes three times. And that of all things against the SCL Tigers.
In December, Sprunger (currently 672 scorer points) trumped the record of club legend Slawa Bykow in a 5-0 win against Langnau with a goal and an assist. And now the striker Gottéron is shooting into the playoffs. Jumper’s last hat trick? On January 28th in the 6-5 win in Bern.
At Langnau, after 23 minutes and the Sprunger gates, the air is out. In the final third, Gianluca Zaetta replaces regular keeper Ivars Punnenovs. And keeps his gate clean. The only downer with Friborg? Reto Berra’s first shutout will not work again. (BRA)
The best – Julien Sprunger (Gottéron), who else? Second hat trick of the season.
The Plum – Benoît Jecker (HCFG) spoils the first shutout due to his passivity Berra.
The goals: 11th Sprunger (Bykow, Walser) 1: 0, 17th Sprunger (Walser) 2: 0, 23rd Sprunger (Gunderson, Mottet / PP) 3: 0, 33rd DiDomenico (Gunderson, Desharnais / PP) 4: 0, 37.Dostoinow (Erni) 4: 1, 39. Marchon (Herren, DiDomenico) 5: 1, 40. Bykow (Walser, Abplanalp) 6: 1, 59. Erni (Huguenin) 6: 2.
HC Lugano – HC Lausanne 1: 3
The goals: 13. Herburger (Wolf, Josephs) 1:0, 27. Bozon (Almond, Frick) 1:1, 34. Almond (Bozon, Krakauskas) 1:2, 39. Bertschy 1:3.
