National League A (Switzerland)
HC Davos 6, EV Zug 1 (Davos wins series 4-0): Dino Wieser and Matthias Joggi each had a goal and an assist to help Davos complete the semifinal sweep. This really wasn't much of a series: Davos outscored Zug 20-5 total and 12-2 in the last two games. They'll rest up and await the end of the Kloten/Bern series in the final.
SC Bern, Kloten Flyers 1 (Kloten leads series 3-1): Ivo Rüthemann scored the winner with 7:04 to play and added an assist on a first period Martin Plüss goal in front of a crowd of 16,578 to lead Bern to the win. Marco Bührer made 28 saves as Bern avoids a sweep and forces a Game 5 back in Zürich on Thursday.
Rapperswil Lakers 3, Ambri-Piotta 2 (Playout Series tied at 2): Samuel Friedli scored the game winning goal as Rapperswil evened up the playout series with a road win. Martin Kariya scored twice for Ambri in the losing cause.
Luleå 4, Skellefteå 3 (OT) (Luleå leads series 1-0): Anders Bürstrom was the OT hero, while Par Aribrandt scored twice in regulation to give Luleå a road win to start their semifinal series. Anders Nilsson made 37 saves in the win.
Färjestad 2, AIK Stockholm 1 (Färjestad leads series 1-0): Färjestad got a goal and an assist from Magnus Nygren and carried the play enough to get two goals past the red hot Viktor Fasth. Having Alexander Salak as your goalie helps a lot in lower scoring games, as he made eleven saves in the third period to conserve the win.
