Even though the Italians had more shots on goal they only scored once in power play. Salzburg was leading 2-0 after first period, Bolzano came back with the 1-2 but the home team made the win clear with their second power play goal this evening. The game Almaty – Katowice in Zeltweg started with 7 (!) goals in first period when „home team“ Aisulu took a 5-2 lead to the first break. In second and third period only one more goal was scored and so the game ended with a 6-2 win for the Kazakhs. Already on Friday KMH Budapest prolonged the winning streak with a 6-1 against hardest competitor Bratislava – it was the 9th win in 9th league game. The Hungarians were leading already 5-0 after first period, SKP was trying hard and had a total of 43 shots on goal but they could score only once.
