Pardubice failed in the derby against Hradec Králové on Sunday and failed to score two goals in a row for the first time this season. At the same time, they came up empty handed for the first time on the opponent’s ice. Against twelfth-placed Litvínov, Dynamo can claim a sixth consecutive win, but in their last two duels Pardubice have won only after separate forays and with a goal after extra time.
The hockey players from Liberec and Sparta met on November 25th in the O2 arena and the people of Prague rejoiced over the 3:1 victory. Now the White Tigers want to avenge the loss, even if they are not doing very well at home this season. Here they have won just four out of 11 games, only Karlovy Vary have a worse record. Last time Liberec lost 2:3 against Vítkovice on Sunday in the Home Credit arena.
