End of the regular season, playoffs start next saturday !

In the only meaningless game of the day, Lugano beats Fribourg 3-2 in overtime. ZSC needed one point to secure the third place, which they got in a 6-4 win in Lausanne. Also 10 goals in Rapperswil, where Zug won 7-3 in game where the winner could secure home ice advantage for the first round.

In the games concerning teams fighting for the last playoffs spots, Geneva and Ambrý didn't need any help, beating Langnau 3-1 and Davos 2-1 respectively, making Bern - Kloten decisive for the last berth. Despite being on a 7-1-0 streak since a loss against ZSC the 14th of january, Kloten didn't get a single chance as they where completely outplayed from the start, with Bern scroing three early goals on their way to a 10-1 win which prevent them from being the first ever defending champion to miss the playoffs.

Apart from Kloten, the biggest loosers of the day were Rapperswil, who fell to the 7th place and will have to face Davos, and Lugano, who was rewarded for its first place with a rematch of last year's final against Bern.
