Drastic way to solve problems :yikes: unprecedented act in the mid tournament in world hockey history

 

 

The only way... Rautakorpi is just not the right coach for junior teams. Jussi Ahokas however is. He won the U18 gold medal last year.

IIHF CONTINENTAL CUP 2016/17

Nottingham writes history

First British team to win Continental Cup

  _DSF6279.jpg?height=550&width=750

 

The Nottingham Panthers also won their third game of the final tournament, 4-1 vs. Ritten, and became the first British team to win the IIHF Continental Cup.

 

The British were more efficient and physically stronger than their opponents and decided the game with three power-play goals.

 

Already after four minutes of play the Nottingham Panthers opened the scoring. With Ritten’s Ivan Tauferer in the penalty box after shooting the puck out of the ice, Matt Carter succeeded from the left side to give the Panthers an ideal start into the game.

 

Ritten tried to come back but didn’t capitalize on its chances and like yesterday made life difficult with penalties. That gave the Panthers the opportunity to play with a man advantage for almost four minutes at the end of the first and the beginning of the second period. 24 seconds after the start of the middle frame Chris Lawrence scored to make it a 2-0 lead for the British team.

 

Nottingham continued to have more chances. During a next power play Erik Lindhagen almost scored the third goal when Ritten goaltender Patrick Killeen seemed almost beaten after a horizontal pass but a miraculous save kept Ritten in the game. And a minute later the home team scored its first goal when Markus Spinell capitalized on a rebound after a shot from Alex Frei.

 

The Italians got their huge chance to tie the game when Andy Sertich was sent to the sin bin for interference and Jeff Dimmen had to follow him just four seconds later after a delaying-the-game call for shooting the puck out of the playing field. But despite the lengthy two-man advantage Ritten was still a goal behind and at 14:16 during a power play British national team forward Robert Farmer scored the 3-1 goal for the Panthers.

 

Ritten tried its best and had more scoring chances during the rest of the game but Nottingham goalie Miika Wiikman had a strong night. With 37.7 seconds left Farmer scored the 4-1 goal into the empty net to make things clear.

 

The Nottingham Panthers had qualified for the Continental Cup Final as the first British team in seven years and winning the competition is the biggest international success for the team and will give it a chance to play in the Champions Hockey League next season subject to formal approval by the CHL board.

Frolunda, Sparta reach CHL Final

 

Frolunda Indians (SWE) and Sparta Prague (CZE) will play the 2016/17 Hockey Champions League. The Match will be played in Goteborg the home place of the Frolunda Indians due to their better record during the competition on Tuesday, 7th February.

 

 

2802_920x518.jpg

 

In the yesterdays semifinals second legs, Frolunda won in Fribourg (SUI) 0-4 (1-9 in aggregate) and Sparta defeated at home Osters Växjo (SWE) 4-0 (6-1 in aggregate).

 

Gothenburg makes third straight Finals appearance

 

The Champions Hockey League Final will be played on Tuesday, 7 February 2017 in Gothenburg between defending Champions Frolunda and first-time finalists Sparta Prague.

Czech powerhouse Sparta Prague is the first Non-Nordic team in the Champions Hockey League Final. The eight times Czech champions follow Luleå Hockey (SWE, 2015), Kärpät Oulu (FIN, 2016) and Frölunda Gothenburg – who actually made it to the CHL Final for the third time in a row and will now host the final game for the first time.

Sparta defeated the Växjö Lakers (SWE) 6:1 on aggregate in the Semi-Finals, while Frölunda marched through against Fribourg-Gotteron (SUI) with 9:1 on aggregate.

The CHL Final will take place on Tuesday, 7 February 2017, in Gothenburg. Frölunda earned the right to play at home due to achieving the best accumulated record (Group Stage + Playoffs).

Frolunda Gothenburg 4 – Fribourg-Gotteron 0 (9-1 aggr.)

Frolunda Gothenburg came into Fribourg and cruised to a 3-0 shutout victory, propelling the Swedish club back into the CHL Finals.

The Indians already had a comfortable 6-1 lead on aggregate ahead of the second leg rematch against the Swiss club, who failed to make a dent in the lead and wasn’t able to get any pucks past Johan Gustafsson, who put up his second shutout of the CHL playoffs.

Sean Bergenheim opened the scoring with a goal midway through the first period, and added an assist in the second for a two-point night. Henrik Tommernes, Robin Figren, and Carl Grundstrom rounded out the scoresheet for Frolunda.

In the short history of the Champions Hockey League, Frolunda has been a mainstay, having now reached the Finals in all three seasons. 

Sparta Prague 4 – Vaxjo Lakers 0 (6-1 aggr.)

A big road win in ther first leg gave Sparta some breathing room playing at home against Vaxjo, and the Czech club took care of business at the O2 Arena in Prague putting up a 4-0 victory and a trip to the CHL Final.

Captain Jaroslav Hlinka and Lukas Klimek led the offence with a goal and two assists each, while Tomas Popperle made 25 saves for the shutout and earned Best Player honours.

Sparta put together a 2-0 lead going into the third period, then took advantage of some desperate play by the Lakers to put the game away with back to back goals from Hlinka and Petr Vrana to seal Sparta’s trip to the CHL Final.

The victory means that Sparta Prague becomes the first Czech club to reach the CHL Finals. The team will be looking to add one final chapter to what has been a historical run with a victory against Frolunda on 7 February.
