In the morning half of the thirty-sixth game day of ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021 Belsk fought for their place in the top three, while Crystal had the task to return closer to the top. The main battle was between 2nd and 5th places, as all other positions are clear and will not be changed by the end of the championship.
Crystal only defeated Ledianye Voiny, who objectively have no problems at the end of the championship. But all is not well for the Electrostal team either, as should Kuznya do well tonight, Crystal will drop to 5th place in the table, giving them the bottom seed for the play-offs.
Chetyre Ledokola played similarly to Crystal, winning only 1 match, just against the team from Electrostal. The team is ranked 7th in the league and will face the team that finishes 2nd in the table.
The Ledianye Voiny are failing at the end of the championship, sometimes producing quality individual performances in individual matches. The team has already solved their play-off issues, finishing in 6th place in the table.
Belsk continue to unseat their opponents and fight for 2nd place in the standings. The team has won 3 games in a row, increased their lead and didn’t let Crystal get any closer, scoring a big win in their head-to-head encounter.
The results of the morning half of the thirty-sixth match day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Crystal – Chetyre Ledokola 4-6
Belsk – Ledianye Voiny 4:2
Chetyre Ledokola v Belsk 4:7
Ledianye Voiny – Crystal 3:6
Chetyre Ledokola – Ledianye Voiny 5:6
Crystal – Belsk 3:7
The evening session of game day 36 sees the return of Kuznya, who can move Crystal even lower from the top 3, but for that the team will need to win all their matches, otherwise the team will remain in 5th place. After this game day, the Ledianye Voiny go on pause, and will return in the last, 38 game day of the regular season.
