Current scores in Hungarian playoffs (best of 7)

Final:
HC Csikszereda 0 Alba Volan 2

Third place match
SC M Ciuc 2 DAB 0

I't looking increasingly like the two Romanian clubs are going to prove to be the best teams in Hungary (aside from the out-of-this-league Alba Volan)

You can check the averages for LNA and LNB here. Those are rolling averages, including all playouts/playoffs games.

Interesing figures, those, and they make Fribourg's performance against Bern all the more notable.

I hadn't realised that Lugano were suffering at the gate as well as on the ice. It used to be rather difficult to get a ticket there, but that seems not to be the case anymore.

Closer to home, Milano Vipers have a decisive game 5 at home tomorrow night to see if they join Ritten, Fassa and Bolzano in the semis. Pontebba are giving Vipers a much harder time than was anticipated after Vipers won the "master round" to determine playoff seeding while Pontebba finished fourth (out of five) in the "relegation round".

This is the kind of thing that can happen when you have a league with 9 teams, 8 of which make the playoffs.

Ajoie had 2500 fans in Bienne btw for the decisive game, it's an hour train/drive away but nonetheless, that's pretty impressive in the context of Swiss ice hockey. Ajoie is the name of the area in the north of Canton Jura, with the main city Porrentruy being the capital. I have family there and I've quite fond of them. They even managed to play for a season in LNA in the early 90's.

Lots of clubs play in small towns, like Lugano or Davos and they have lots of fans coming from outside the area, a dip in the performances and the floating glory hunter won't bother. BlueWin also shows 250 games a season now and that's bound to have an effect as well...

Only a Geneva boy would call Lugano a "small town" . . .

There's a rumour on the IHF forums that Kärpät and Red Bull have submitted applications to play in the Russian Open League next year.

Same source as the Jokerit rumour?

Are Red Bull Austrian, or has Mateschitz expanded his evil empire yet again? Either way, I can't see them being competitive in a Russian league (whereas Karpat could be, if they could handle the travel and aren't hometowned by the refs every night).

An interview with Medvedev.

there is a story on Iltalehti's website that says, breathlessly, that there will be a SALARY FLOOR! in the ROL, as if this was some kind of news. I may well be missing nuance here.

It does seem as if Gazprom have covered all bases for next season, and if any credible international competition emerges they will be in charge.

Good Lord, not an evening for those fragile of nerves....

In the LNB final, Bienne take the advantage, after a 3-2 win against Chaux-de-Fonds.

In the LNA playouts final, Ambri wins away to Basel 5-3 to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

In the LNA playoffs, Zurich beat Davos 4-3 OT. In the other semi, Fribourg scored the equaliser 23 seconds before the end of the game, 6vs4 after some more acrobatics by "Ronaldo" Sprunger to get a man sent off. Mind you it seems we did the same on saturday when we scored our equaliser 6 vs 4...Anyhow, no goals in OT and it went down to penalties. After 3 rounds, it was still tied so it went to sudden death penalties, both clus choosing to stick to one player and at that game, GSCH were the winners with Serge Aubin scoring twice in a row and Mona stopping their last attempt. 2-0 in the series, get in!

It starts again on thursday...

Allez les Grenats!

That's an interesting rule about being able to keep the same shooter if it goes past three; it would change the dynamics of football shootouts quite a bit.

Down here, the hometown Vipers won their game 5 (though Pontebba came back from 3-0 down to make it 3-2) and will take on Bolzano Foxes in the semis; the other semi being between Ritten Sport and Fassa Levoni.

During the 3/3 penalty series, only Aubin and the other chap scored as well...Impressive from Aubin as he has not been that good on penalties this season.

In american high school futbol, they allow the same shooters after 5 shots. This does tilt things tremendously in the goalkeeper's favor in soccer, as they know exactly where they're going to go. Unless, of course, you're a Roberto Baggio (pre-1994) who can go in either corner. In all 3 shootouts I saw, it ended with the 6th shooter going into the same corner as before (including Heather O'Reilly in our CJ IV sectional title game, my greatest-ever win.)

Hockey is different because there's a lot more improvization at the time of the shot. The best penalty shooters in hockey can switch holes that they're going for in a split-second.

Congrats Croute. Although, I don't like the idea of shootouts in playoffs. That's what Sodden Deth Playaouf Hawkey (my Canadian accent impression) is for.

Oops.

Toskala lets in a 190 foot plus "shot" against the Isles (and then stones for the rest of the game as the Leafs win).

Another day, another round of playoffs...

In the LNB final, Bienne is now 2-0 up thanks to an OT win in Chaux-de-Fonds (7000 spect!), with notably two goals 4vs5.

In the LNA playout, another rout for Basel, with Ambri leading 3-0, it looks like the Basler are simply keeping their energies for their final decider against the LNB winners...

In Davos, Zurich won 4-0 to lead the series 2-1.

In Geneva, Servette beat Fribourg 4-1 and takes a 3-0 lead in the series. The better be no complacency with that scoreline, Zug and Lausanne can testify to that.
