“Tigers” in guests with the result 1: 4 (0: 0, 0: 3, 1: 1) acknowledged the superiority of “Biel – Bienne”.

Punnenov stood the first period “dry”, but at the beginning of the second third he was delayed in the locker room due to equipment and 19-year-old Damien Stetler entered the goal. After two minutes and 13 seconds, the new goalkeeper was forced to capitulate and Punnenovs returned to his position. The Latvian then conceded three unanswered goals, but in the last minutes of regular time, the guests regained one “goal”.

Punnenovs fought 23 of 26 opponents thrown in the 56 minutes and 30 seconds.

Tiger striker Tom Anderson played nine minutes and 57 seconds, during which he scored once and scored a negative efficiency of -1. Rihards Melnalksnis remained out of the application on Saturday.

In another game, Denis Smirnov and Sands Smons’ Geneva “Servette” gave up Ambri Piotta with 1: 2 (0: 1, 0: 1, 1: 0) away.

Smirnov spent ten minutes and 59 seconds on the ice, winning one of the three throws and achieving a neutral efficiency. Smons stayed out of the application.

“Lausanne”, represented by Ronald Ķēniņš, is currently in the lead and takes third place in ten games with 22 points. Servette is fifth with 19 points in ten matches, while Tigers is the penultimate among 12 teams with eight points in ten duels.

Last season, the NLA tournament ended after a regular championship, so for the second time in history and for the first time since 1940, the Swiss champion in hockey was not crowned.
