On the evening half of the twenty-third game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, Kuznya could regain their lost place in the standings, with the Chetyre Ledokola gradually starting to come on the heels of Almaty.
Ferrum continued their unbeaten streak. The number of defeats is gradually approaching obscene, and a glimmer in the game is not even visible. Tomorrow the team will get a new goalkeeper, but with the current defence, it will hardly help the team.
Kuznya hold the status of a confident mid-table side in the tournament and continue to strengthen their position. They’re a long way from the highs the team reached at the beginning of the tournament, but their playoff hopes are certainly worthy of a better draw. Today the team lost only to the Icebreakers, while playing without their captain.
Their resilience is staggering: The Almaty team once again defeated only Ferrum, while losing heavily to the rest of the field. Thanks to their strong performance, the team stays in the elimination zone, but with these results they can only count on a low seed. There’s still time to turn things around.
On the word of the pursuers, Almaty – the Chetyre Ledokola are already very close to the team from Kazakhstan. The gap is some 2 points, and the Ledokoly themselves show a confident game, once again winning a series of 3 victories.
The results of the evening half of the twenty-third day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Ferrum – Chetyre Ledokola 5:9
Kuznya – Almaty 6:1
Almaty – Chetyre Ledokola 4:6
Kuznya – Ferrum 7:6
Ferrum – Almaty 1:4
Chetyre Ledokola – Kuznya 5:4
The Armeets and Molotoboytsy are back in the 24 game day. For the Balashikha team, tomorrow is a realistic chance to move into the championship lead. The Molotoboytsy, on the other hand, have to start deciding on making the playoffs here and now, because time is too short, and their lead over the Chetyre Ledokola is 35 points.
