Genève-Servette has recovered well from its defeat in the Lake Geneva derby. The Eagles dominated Davos 4-0 at the Vernets.
As usual, outsiders from GSHC set the tone. We think of Vatanen’s 2-0 and Pouliot, now Swiss, 3-0, on a delicious pass from Tömmernes which knocked down Davosian defender Thomas Wellinger.
And Jan Cadieux was able to count on a very good Tanner Richard, author of the opener in the 5th. Note that the grizzly rods were the last to hit the puck on the first two successes.
Without Bromé, Stransky or Nussbaumer, Graubünden seemed relatively harmless. It is difficult to find Davos, which was once leader of the National League. Without some decisive parades from Gilles Senn, the bill could have been heavier.
In the other cage, Dominic Nyffeler had the joy of experiencing a first shutout. Not bad for a freelance writer from Kloten in the Swiss League to compensate for the absence of Gauthier Descloux.
Geneva is still 9th in the standings with 1.382 points against 1.394 in Lausanne.
In the other match of the evening, Zug took a long time to overcome Ambri in Leventine. The Zougois finally won 3-2 after having recovered from a deficit of two goals. It was Sämi Kreis who scored the winning goal in overtime.
