Tomorrow, the playouts start off. Four Swiss NLA teams play the first round of their best-of-7 games. They’re all fighting for one thing: staying in the NLA.
After the regular season, the four lowest ranked teams play playouts. #9 Waldkirch-St. Gallen meets Kloten-Bülach Jets (#12), while Chur Unihockey faces UHC Thun. Winning these best-of-7 series means your season is over and your club stays in the NLA. Lost the series? Then you still have a chance, as you’ll meet the winners of the playoffs from the NLB. In another best-of-7 series, it’s all about promoting/relegating.
Tomorrow at 15:00 and 19:30 (CET), the games will begin:
15:00 Chur Unihockey – UHC Thun
19:30 Waldkirch-St. Gallen – Kloten-Bülach Jets
On Sunday, the teams meet again. The other playing dates are March 7 (WaSa-Jets), 8 (Chur-Thun), 10, 11, 17 and 18.
