Ice hockey: Freiburg bows but brings back a point from Ticino
Led 3-0 in Lugano, Freiburg still managed to take a point in Ticino. The Dragons lost 5-4 ap while Berne raised his head to a 3-2 win at Rapperswil.
Freiburg blows hot and cold. In the last six games, the Freiburg players have never been able to win two in a row. But Christian Dubé’s men are still on the National League podium. Because this Gottéron has character and despite a deficit of three goals in the 25th, there is no question of giving up. And from Mottet’s 1-3 to Stalberg’s 4-4 in the 57th, the Dragons showed an interesting face and a certain character.
Stalberg’s equalizer also praised the Swedish striker’s job, which was poorly paid in the first 20 minutes. The initial third saw the number 25 miss three potential goals including a head-to-head in front of Schlegel. And these missed opportunities have logically benefited the Ticino. On the first power play, Mark Arcobello was able to use a rebound to open the scoring (17th).
A point in your pocket
The debates got a little heated during the second period with Luganais fast to take three lengths ahead and Fribourgeois crooked and eager not to let themselves sink.
The extra time does not fit frankly with the match of the Fribourg. But no doubt happy to have at least one point in their pocket, Desharnais and Co. stammered their hockey a little in overtime. Curiously left alone on the right side, Tim Heed was able to send an unstoppable shot after just 31 seconds of play.
Lugano recorded his third straight success and remained in 6th place.
In the other game of the evening, Dan Nachbaur was able to breathe a little. Berne beat Rapperswil 3-2. The Canadian coach can thank Gaetan Haas for a three-point game with one goal and two assists. The Bears ended a five-game losing streak and finished in 8th place.
