With a spectacular third period, newcomer Mountfield HK of the Czech Extraliga beat Yekaterinburg 4:3. In the evening game the host, HC Davos was close but in the end, lost to long time rival Team Canada 4:3.


Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg - Mountfield HK 3-4

Yekaterinburg had the better start to the game when Dmitry Monya scored with the first shot on goalie Rybar. Although the Russians took four minor penalities in the first period the Czech representative wasn't able to capitalise on the one-man advantage. They did get the equalizer in the 5th minute when Richard Jarusek scored unassisted on Vladimir Sokhatsky. Mountfield took their first lead of the game with five minutes played in the second when Gregorc passed on Kukumberg. Just as a Russian boxplay expired Anatoli Golyshev put the score up 2:2 in the 38th minute. But this wasn't enough action for the second period: Mountfield's Michal Dragoun was benched for holding when Avtomobilisk set up their powerplay and reclaimed the lead with 17 seconds left in the period.

Each team took a minor penalty in the third period, both had no consequences to the score. Seven minutes were left on the clock as Roman Kukumberg with his second goal brought back hope to his team. When Yekaterinburg was given their seventh minor penalty of the game, Richard Jarousek took his chance on the powerplay and scored the game winning goal with a little more than four minutes left. Although Avtomobilisk had another powerplay chance with three minutes left, the Czechs took the win in their first game of the tournament while Yekaterinburg will have to win one of the quarterfinals the day after tomorrow if they want to remain in the race for the 90th Spengler Cup. Mountfield will play the other winner of yesterdays game of the group Torriani, Lugano, to determine the first semifinalist. 

HC Davos - Team Canada 3-4

It's what you call a "Classic" at the Spengler Cup when Davos and Canada meet. The Canadians had lost their first game to Dynamo Minsk the day before while Davos entered the tournament today. Both teams were firing out of all canons, making it a fast paced game in the starting minutes. Team Canada had the slight upper hand but in the 12th minute it was Per Ledin who scored on a rebound off of Zach Fucale. Davos' Gill Senn had all hands full in the following minutes but kept his goal clean. With three minutes left the referee indicated a penalty against the home team as the Canadians sent a sixth attacker on the ice it was Charles Genoway who saw Mason Raymond standing clear, passed the puck and Raymond simply deflected the shot past Senn to make it 1-1.

Cory Emmerton's shorthanded goal was the lone goal for the Canadians in the 28th minute in an otherwise "quiet" second period. The Swedish defenseman Daniel Rahimi had the equalizer in the 46th minute but Jacob Micflikier put his team on top again just a minute later while on a powerplay. Andres Ambühl was benched in the 53th minute for crosschecking and Team Canada didn't fiddle around very long. 18 seconds into the one-man advantage Andrew Ebbett netted the fourth goal for the red and white. But whoever thought that Davos had given up was far of the truth. Coach Del Curto took his time-out and he seemed to have given his team the right instructions. Per Ledin with his second goal closed the gap to only one goal with 4 minutes to play. With less than a minute to go, Del Curto removed Senn from the goal to place an additional attacker on the ice but the Canadians were able to hold up their lead and now have a win and a loss.
