Earlier in the season Zug were chasing the top spot, and they are still contenders. They are placed third, with 18 points; Zurich hold 21 points, followed by Ambri-Piotta.

Meanwhile, the canton Berne derby was less than joyful for the capital's side: Berne lost 3-1 to the Langnau Tigers. The Tigers stand fifth in the table, but Berne languish tenth, solidly in the relegation zone.

Lagnau have not beaten Berne away at the Allmend-Stadion since 1981.

In the night's other matches, Chur smashed into La Chaux-de-Fonds 6-0, Fribourg lost 5-1 to Davos, and Ambri drew 2-2 with Rapperswil.
