PS : i was also surpised about the comment made by the commentator that, the evening preceeding this game, in his hotel in Helsinki, he watched on a finish TV a Swiss NLA game live !!
I understand that Finland may be a hockey country ... but wouldn't they watch at KHL or Swedish liga ? whatever it is pleasant to know that NLA has recognition abroad.

yup let's hope that swiss players will finally get the recognition they deserve from NHL/KHL/SEL/Finnish league/....
