On the thirty-eighth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, the biggest surprise was Team Ferrum, who won 3 victories in a game session for the first time at the tournament. The surprise on the negative side was Crystal, who lost 2 matches out of 3.
Chetyre Ledokola had the worst showing today, losing all three matches. The loss before the playoffs really hurt the team, as today’s defeats were all pretty big.
Almaty lost their first game to Ferrum, but then the team defeated the Icebreakers and Crystal, besting the team from Electrostal 8-4.
Crystal defeated the Chetyre Ledokola, but suffered crushing defeats in their other matches. Crystal’s fate is now in the hands of Kuznya, the Molotoboytsy and the Armeets. If the Uralets lose all their matches, which is highly unlikely, then Crystal will heroically retain third place. In any other case, the team will drop to 4th place.
The real furore for all short hockey fans today was produced by the Ferrum hockey team, who won three games in one day and managed to rise from last place in the table for the first time in the whole tournament.
The results of the thirty-eighth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Ferrum – Almaty 4:2
Chetyre Ledokola v Crystal 2:7
Almaty – Chetyre Ledokola 4:3
Crystal – Ferrum 6:7

In the evening half of the game day the main prize will be the Uralets, whose performance will determine the pairings for the first round of the play-offs, as well as the name of the team that will win the bronze medal in the regular season. In fact, the team needs only one win in games against Kuznya, Armeets and Crystal.
