After a 4-1 defeat against Rapperswil-Jona the Bernese players are not yet through to the ice hockey play-offs and are only three points ahead of Langnau, who are below the line with 37 points.

Fribourg celebrated their first victory this season by crushing league leaders Davos 3-1, which leaves the Romand team in third position.

Even though Kloten lost 3-5 against Lugano, the Zurich players managed to qualify for the play-offs.

Bottom side team Chur were beaten 3-4 by ZSC Lions, however, this does not make a difference as the Graubünden team were already headed for the relegation play-outs.

Below the line team Langnau defeated Lausanne 5-1 and the two teams are now only separated by one point.

After league leaders Davos and Lugano, currently number two, had qualified for the play-offs, Fribourg, ZSC Lions, Kloten, Ambri and Zug have now joined the list of qualified teams.

Apart from Bern, Rapperswil-Jona, Lausanne and Langnau are still fighting for a place in the play-offs.
