Buček were able to score in the 7th minute, but he hesitated in front of a half-empty goal. Rockwood had a fantastic opportunity to put Nitranov up another goal 10 minutes into the match, but he fired just over the crossbar. A minute later, Hrnka scored an eighth goal in the playoff with an eighth goal in the playoffs, who, with Rahm’s contribution, used a power play. During the first period, Nitra was held by the goalkeeper O’Connor, who in the 13th minute with an effective intervention prevented the flying puck from ending in the goal. This gave the Corgoňs the opportunity to confirm a familiar rule, you won’t give. In the 15th minute, Krivošík sent Nitra into the lead. The second third brought more careful play from both sides. In the middle of the third, the “Bryndziari” had the advantage of a power play of four against three, but in its implementation they offered too much and in the end they hesitated several times. With 37 minutes played, Rockwood could have brought this one home for Rahm as he charged up on the left, but his hooked ball went just a bit too high. The Elected tried to erase the one-goal shorts with all their might. Near the goal, the guests were in the 47th minute, when the puck stopped leaning against the goal construction. Zvolen also lacked emphasis in the 50th minute at Saracin’s arrival. The guests tried the final bait, but the home team did not allow Zvolen to equalize with a sacrificial game. Nitra advanced to the finals. Photo gallery (21) Source: SITA / Martin Havran Match 6 – semifinal Kaufland play off Tipos extra league: HK Nitra – HKM Zvolen 2: 1 (2: 1, 0: 0, 0: 0)
