No one was expecting that. After all, EHC Kloten under sporting director and coach Larry Mitchell had lost eight straight games and found it very difficult, especially on offense. However, the ZSC Lions failed to get anything going at the end of the derby weekend. Denis Malgin on Saturday and defender Patrick Gering on Sunday scored late goals to make it 1-2. In the end, Kloten was able to make everything clear twice, with a shot into an empty goal.
Juha Mitsola, Kloten's Finnish goalkeeper, turned out to be the winner of the double match. After making 36 saves on Saturday, Metsola made 31 more saves on Sunday. He saved 67 of 69 shots, which corresponds to a very good catch rate of 97.10 percent.

Along with goalkeeper Mitsula, 32-year-old Canadian Tyler Morley shined. On Saturday, he scored two goals. On Sunday he gave Kloten the lead with a shorthanded shot in the 19th minute. Morley has scored nine goals so far this season – a third of them against the ZSC Lions this weekend.
ZSC Lions are probably still the leaders in terms of points lost: one point behind Friborg Goteron with a game in hand. However, the Zurich team will have to take stock after their third derby defeat of the season against Kloten. Since the phase at the end of the year when they looked almost invincible and won eight in a row, the Lions have won just three of their nine matches. Goalkeeper Simon Hrubek suffered his fourth consecutive defeat in Kloten. In attack, ZSC rarely has any good scoring chances, despite their best efforts. (seda)
