HC Davos gets a lesson in Spengler Cup Group B match. The host submits to Sparta Prague 2: 9 and misses the semi-final direct qualification.

After a 2-1 win over Team Canada on Tuesday night, Davos defender Claude Cordin-Bascaud said such a win gives a lot of energy. There was nothing to see from this, rather the population of Graubünden was introduced by the Czechs.

Sparta Prague celebrated “simple” ice hockey, which was played very calmly and efficiently. Davos already served the team well with a 1:2 lead after 20 minutes. Matej Stransky’s goal a few seconds into the first half was more than just a lucky one. HCD defender Michael Krotel’s shot was immediately parried to Stransky’s skate, as the puck went into the goal.

Amateur defense work

This blow didn’t really give the locals a boost. On the contrary: when they played the powerplay for the first time in this match at the beginning of the middle period, they surrendered 1: 3 (22) – defender Michel Kempeny was to blame for this. Dominic Igli and assistant player Marc Michaelis were very enthusiastic in the Davos team.

When Jan Buchtele (26) made it 4-1, HCD guard Gilles Senn allowed a pass. Davos conceded 1:5 and 1:6 in the 33rd minute in 43 seconds, with Roman Horak and David Vitos calling for the goals. The Eastern Europeans showed no mercy in the final section either, but Andres Ampol managed a 2:9 with 20.9 seconds left. However, there was still a lot missing from Davos’ biggest defeat in this tournament, in 1984 they lost 2:13 to Dukla Jihlava, who also came from the Czech Republic.

Davos now against Helsinki

It is now up to HCD to leave the evening behind as quickly as possible. The next match will indeed be on Thursday evening against IFK Helsinki. Because of the Davos defeat, there will obviously be no Swiss final this year. If Davosers defeat the Finns, they will face Ambri-Piota in the semifinals on Friday.
