In the evening half of the twenty-sixth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, Belsk and Krystal could close in on Armeets, while Ledianye Voiny had an excellent chance of getting closer to the top three if they beat their direct rival Uralets.
Crystal were on top again. I’m not talking about the position in the standings, but about the way the team played. Three wins in three games, 24-12. Given the dramatic change in the squad, one can only marvel at the fact that the team’s play has only gotten better.
The Ledianye Voiny have been slow, unexpectedly losing all their games. Yes, the team is playing without nearly all of their leaders, but such a roller coaster ride in team results is a rather unpleasant surprise to all fans of this squad.
Due to the lackluster performance of the Ledianye Voiny, the Uralets were able to create a solid lead over this team, losing only to Crystal, and beating the Ledianye Voiny in a head-to-head encounter. Unfortunately, injury of the Kachkanar team goalkeeper may bring a lot of problems to the team, but if they find a decent replacement, it is likely that the high position in the standings will help the team to go as far as possible in the Jakhn Cup.
Belsk lost only to Crystal, pushing the Minsk team four points clear of their 2-3 place rival. The team are in confident positions and the gap from 1st place is only 9 points, and the Minsk team will definitely have a chance to get closer.
The results of the evening half of the twenty-sixth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
