Davos managed to retain their number one position even though Kloten beat the team 3-0.

Kloten's player Ronny Keller and goalie Reto Pavoni were the big stars of the match in Davos.

Keller scored the first goal for his team after only 121 seconds and Pavoni managed to keep the puck out of the goal at all times.

Davos had not lost any of their previous seven matches and had only conceded one point each during the games with Lugano and Bern.

It was surprising that it was the Kloten team, currently number eight in the table, that broke Davos' winning streak.

This is the first time the Zurich team has defeated Davos since December 10, 1999, when they won 1-0.

Ambri vs Langnau

Ambri stormed to a high scoring victory against Langnau with a massive 6-0 win.

Ambri started off very well and managed to score three goals within the first 182 seconds, with Cantoni netting the ball twice and Manuele Celio scoring the third goal.

The record for such a triplet is held by the EHC Biel, who took only 74 seconds to score three goals against Olten on February 26, 1994.

Fribourg vs Chur

Fribourg smashed Chur with a 6-0 victory with six different players managing to get the puck past the 17-year-old goalkeeper Tobias Stephan.

This was the biggest defeat for the league table's number 12 since October 9, when Bern smashed them 0-7.

It only took the Gottéron team three shots at the goal to achieve a 2-0 lead.

Slehofer and Ferguson scored within the first four minutes and Howald achieved achieved the 3-0 score before the first third was over.

The outcome was already decided after the second third, when Monnet, Roy and Leuenberger scored one goal each.

Bern vs ZSC Lions

After three away defeats in a row the Lions have finally won a match and defeated Bern 4-2.

Bern led 2-1 until the 35th minute when Lion's Adrien Plavsic managed to equalise. Mark Streit scored the third goal for the Lions before the second third was over.

Claudio Micheli secured the victory by scoring the fourth goal in the 55th minute.

This is the first time in three years that the Bern team have lost two home matches in a row, after Lausanne beat them 3-5 on Saturday.

In other matches Lausanne lost against Lugano 2-4 and Zug won over Rapperswil-Jona 4-2.
