The third derby awaits the hockey players of Pardubice and Hradec Králové

Prague – The East Bohemian derby will offer Wednesday’s program of the 45th round of the hockey extra league. The seventh Pardubice and the fifth Hradec Králové will go into it with a good current form, the home Dynamo will try to turn the rival for points for the first time in the season. The leader of Sparta will present himself on the ice of the fourth Liberec, the second Třinec will play against the sixth Pilsen. Praguers and Steelworks share only two points, so the competition can have a new leader.

The people of Pardubice scored five times in a row, winning four times. “Hradec is a challenge in every match, it’s our neighbor. The rivalry is there and it is impossible to start the match other than 120 percent. defender Jan Zdráhal.

Hradec Králové won both previous fights of the year. He is currently on the wave of three wins and is losing only a point to Liberec. “Pardubice plays great hockey, they are fast, good backwards. We have to prepare for them and play our game. I hope that we will get three points. If the four ends, we will be very happy,” said striker Marek Zachar.

Liberec has won four times in a row and will play against Sparta, which it has defeated twice out of three duels. After a series of nine wins on Monday, the leader of Sparta lost to Karlovy Vary after the raids and scored points for the sixteenth time in a row. The last time she came out empty on January 3, when she lost at home to Liberec 1: 3. In the north of Bohemia, the people of Prague lost five times in a row, including the Summer Cup, the last time they played here in normal playing time was in December 2016.

“We are glad that it is played right away. We only have one practice and we will not rummage in the last match. This is ideal,” said coach Miloslav Hořava after the duel with Energie, which Sparta lost due to a collected goal in weakening in the 59th minute. “Now it will be similar to the playoffs, but we prefer it when it is played,” he added to the program of four matches in seven days.

Trinec has won eight of the last nine matches and is still chasing Sparta. Against Pilsen, they will be deploying Stránský’s and Špaček’s representatives, to whom coach Václav Varaďa left off after the Swedish Games on Monday.

“They had a challenging program and an equally demanding program is ahead of us, we didn’t want to risk anything. After a break, it always takes a while to get into it. It was such a lean unsalty from us overall, but I believe it will improve,” he said Varaďa, who only lacks the wounded Jaroměřský. Třinec defeated Pilsen five times in a row at home.

Pilsen complicated the fight for a place in the first four with a 2: 4 defeat in Mladá Boleslav. “There is nothing that can be done, we are moving on, we will fight until the end,” said striker Petr Kodýtek.

Karlovy Vary ended a series of five defeats at Sparta on Monday and want to continue their improved results at home against Brno. “We have two home matches ahead of us, in which we will try to build on the performance from Sparta. I hope that it will continue to trample us,” said forward Tomáš Vondráček, the team’s second best scorer and former Kometa player with 15 goals.

The comet moved to Vary straight from České Budějovice with a valuable win of 5: 4. Not only for gaining three points, but also with the knowledge of improved play, although not for the whole 60 minutes. “We fouled a lot and were punished for it. We have to improve this. I hope that the win will kick us, we will confirm it in Vary and we will start tuning in to a key phase of the season,” said the center Petr Holík.

Olomouc has not been able to score fully in five games in a row and it seems that it has the twelfth place reserved by the end of the basic part. The ideal chance to turn it around and get closer to the tenth Litvínov is to win Wednesday’s match on home ice. “We are now playing five matches in nine days, there are a lot of matches and I believe that we will keep the position for the preliminary round,” coach Jan Tomajko indicated the main priority of the Hanáks.

Litvínov suffered a lot from Liberec for the last time, but he has been waiting for the win in the basic time since the end of January. “We are satisfied with the point against Liberec, but as far as performance is concerned, we have to improve in the next matches,” coached coach Vladimír Országh.

Zlín is moving away from participation in the playoffs every round, on Monday the Rams suffered their sixth loss in a row. On Wednesday, they will want to interrupt the black series with Mladá Boleslav. “We have nine matches to the end and if we want to fight for the preliminary round, it is not time to have our heads down,” said forward Antonín Honejsek, who returned to the squad after a national team break after a month.

Thanks to a series of three home matches, Mladá Boleslav also stretched the points line for six matches, of which the Skating Club celebrated its win five times.

Vítkovice has a chance to return to České Budějovice the debacle 0: 7 from the first match in Ostrava on home ice. “We are literally waiting for the final sprint. The matches are coming so fast now that it doesn’t even make much sense to decide who you are playing against. wounded Captain Pole.

The players of the last České Budějovice did not use the stumbling of the Rams in any way and they are still losing six points.
