Even though trainer Wassili Tichonow left the Langnau team before the match against Davos, the Tigers' streak of bad luck did continue. It was the seventh time in a row the team lost on home soil with scoring less then three goals in every match.

After Davos was two goals ahead, Langnau defender Erik Hämäläinen managed to equalise by scoring two goals in a row. However, Björn Christen demonstrated great skills by scoring the winning goal 247 seconds before the final whistle.

Zug wins against Ambri

Having only just gained the top position, Ambri has been pushed down to second place by losing 2-4 against Zug. Goalkeeper Paul Jaks made two major mistakes, which lead to the defeat of the Ticino team.

Bern, currently number four in the table, lost against Lugano 2-1, even though the team's top scorer Christian Dubé was injured during a foul by Laurent Müller. He is not expected to be back on the ice before mid November.

League table number six, ZSC Lions, lost against Kloten 5-3 in front of 6,700 spectators. After a score of 3-3, Finnish national, Kimmo Rintanen, and Adrian Wichser managed to score two goals for Kloten in the last period.

The fact that Lions' player Edgar Salis was at home nursing a bad back and Michel Zeiter was sent off after 20 minutes into the match contributed to the team's poor performance.

Elsewhere in the league, Fribourg won a comfortable 6-2 victory against Chur and Lausanne defeated Rapperswil-Jona 1-3.
