    I do think that after Soviet times Spengler means nothing but pleasent XMss holidays on ice to any Russian team participated.
    Last cup was kind of exception, just because Magnitka was much much better than others, made 'em "by one skate" whithout any visual tension.
    This time Khimik looks tough but you never know what about team's ambitions for that certain tournament. I wish there are. Though bet on HCD myself.

    I think Canada is going to win, just with Justin Pogge in net and Patt Quinn coaching.
    :stupid:

    Well, when you in N.A. say that a defense is as "tight as a sieve", reporters in Europe say it is as "holey as a Swiss Cheese " :045:

    But then also our mountains have a lot of holes in them...

    I will watch 3 games (and maybe the final) live in the Ice Palace, but mainly to meet a colleague from Finland who is there as well (and - believe it or not - rather for skiing than watching Ice Hockey, despite having a friend there who could get her free tickets for all games :eek:

    I don't care who will win, as long as it is the team which shows the most attractive and spectacular hockey !.

    BTW: If Canada should just win with good coaching, then rather because of Sean Simpson than Pat Quinn :-)....

    Spengler Cup Summary: Canada beats Mora in a penalty shootout
    Already the evening game on the first day of the tournament went in a penalty shootout. In the end Canada succeeded and beat Mora 4:3 although the Swedish team was closer to win the game in the regular time. But particularly in the shootout, Mora acted unfortunately.
    Even as Stacy Roest scored the 3:2 for Team Canada in the 53. minute, Mora tried to close the gap. 2 minutes before the end of the regular time Mikko Kurvinen scored the 2:2. Shortly before and after the 2:3 Mora hit only the goal post from Canada goaltender Justin Pogge. As Roest scored Mora’s goaltender Mikko Rämö gave an unmeant assist, and got injured.
    In the run-up to this Spengler Cup the first performance of Mora was highly expected. Nobody knew about the power of the 10th ranked Mora but during the game against Canada the team proofed, that it is a worthy Spengler Cup participant.
    In the first period, the Team Canada was superiority, but the result after twenty minutes was only 1:1. In the second period the Swedish “outsider” team played quite as well as Canada and in the third period even better. The point Mora gained in the penalty shootout is well-deserved.
    For the Canadians the story does not repeat. Exactly one year ago, they lost their first game against Metallurg Magnitogorsk in a penalty shootout. The team of legendary head coach Pat Quinn played like everybody had expected. The offensive was obviously better than the defence.

    Spengler Cup Summary: 9th starting victory for the HC Davos

    The HC Davos started optimal into the 80th Spengler Cup. The host team beat in the preliminary game the “Polar Bears” in the sold out audience 4:1.
    In the second period, the German team could not defend the lead. Two goals in 2 minutes by the HC Davos decided the game.
    18:5 is the official shot-statistic in the second period. But the HC Davos changed in those 20 minutes a 0:1 handicap into a 2:1 lead. Oleg Petrov, the Spengler Cup loan from the EV Zug, tied whit a Penalty (26.) and only 86 seconds later the HC Davos gained the lead by Alexandre Daigle. “The penalty pushed us”, said Daigle after the game. This was very important, because of so many idle chances in the first period. The German goaltender drove the host team into near desperation and was the reason why the HC Davos was not able to use one of its three power plays until then.
    In that prestigious comparison between a German and a Swiss team, the 6th of the German Hockey League (DEL) played for a long time even better than the HC Davos. It was an offensive spectacle for the 7080 spectators and without the HC Davos goaltender Jonas Hiller, the “Polar Bears” would have been leading after 40 minutes.
    For Daigle the key to win the game was the successfully box play of the host. All of the six box plays ended without a goal. Another two goals in short time by Reto von Arx and Nick Naumenko were the decision. For the HC Davos it was the 9th win in a row in a preliminary game and for Daigle, who’s changed this summer to Davos, an optimal debut.
    The former Number 1 Pick knows, what this starting victory means. “If we win tomorrow as well, it looks good to reach the final.” In North America the 31-year old forward watched the Spenger Cup games in the Canadian TV. Tomorrow evening (20.15) in the game against his fellow countrymen, he will be one of the most important players again.

    As always Spengler's atmosphere is great; fans're singin', teams're havin' fun of the game themselves, wooden walls and ceiling - charmingly special, are they?

    Oleg Petrov, time seems treat him kind, still in pretty good shape, sharp and wise as ever.

    Post game report from Davos:

    Ein Flopspiel. Wenn dieses Spiel überhaupt in die Geschichte des Spengler Cups eingeht, dann nur im negativen Sinne. Keine Spannung, keine Emotionen, kein Schwung; einfach rein gar nichts. Nicht Spengler Cup würdig. Nicht Eishockey würdig. Mora IK kam im Sparmodus zu einem 5:0 Kantersieg, das sagt alles über die russische Mannschaft Khimik und das heutige Nachmittagsspiel. ABER meine lieben Hockeyfreunde wir springen vom einen Extremen ins Andere. Das Nachmittagspiel war das Flopspiel, das Abendspiel ist das Topspiel schlechthin: HC Davos:Team Canada. Wer da nicht dabei ist, ist selber schuld.
    Very tough words.... :ignore:

    yes, unfortunatly they would have been splendid to watch offensively.

    besides that, good game today between canada and Davos HC.

    davos went up 2-0 in the 1st period only to allow 3 straight canada goals.

    davos took far to many penalties, and shot themselves in the foot with a few poor plays defensively.

    jonas hiller is splendid.

    Mora - Khimik 5-0 (1:0, 2:0, 2:0)
    10. Bergkvist (Jardine, Kurvinen) 1:0. 26. Brendl (Blatak/Strafe gegen Khimik angezeigt) 2:0. 35. Kurvinen (Johansson, Brendl) 3:0. 51. Bergkvist (Brendl, Beaudoin/Ausschlüsse I. Vorobiev, Sirokov) 4:0. 59. Jansson (Simons, Nilsson) 5:0.
    Penalties: 7 x 2 minutes Mora, 9 x 2 minutes Khimik. Att: 6,602

    Mora: Pitkämäki; Kultanen, Jonsson; Bruun, Määttä; Kurvinen, Blatak; Johansson, Wessner, Huml; Beaudoin, Bastiansen, Brendl; Nilsson, Simons, Jansson; Bergkvist, Granström, Jardine.

    Khimik: Barulin (36. Kolesnik); Metlyuk, Balandin; Bykov, Homitskiy; Titov, Puyats; Kosmachev, Semenov; Mikhail Sevostyanov, Sergey Sevostyanov, Boykov; Pronin, Leschev, Mozyakin; Schastliviy, Ilya Vorobiev, Krikunov; Bulyanskiy, Sirokov, Pavel Vorobiev.
    Best Players: Pavel Brendl / Albert Leschev

    As the last of the participant teams the HK Khimik started into the 80th Spengler Cup. But it disappointed. The Russian favourite was beaten by Mora IK 0:5. The Swedish team still surprises. The 10th ranked of the Swedish championship against the 3rd ranked Russian team – Mora IK against the HK Khimik was the only comparison of two club teams in original occupation in this year’s tournament.
    Mora won well-deserved – even with a 5 goal-lead. The team seemed having forgotten the lost last night in penalty shootout against Team Canada. On the contrary, it took the self-confidence and got even better.
    Two players in the Swedish team took center stage, Kenneth Bergkvist and Pavel Brendl. Bergkvist scored two times and the Czech hockey star Brendl scored one time and gave two assists. The two were the outstanding players in a homogeneous and disciplined team, which understood to crack the Russian defense.
    How difficult it is to score against Khimik, shows the statistic. In only one of the 35 matches in the running season, Khimik was beaten with 5 goals.
    Mora’s goaltender Juha Pitkämäki had an easy job today. The first tournament’s shutout is well-deserved. The Moscow chances to score were rare.
    Although the Moscow team had its day off yesterday, it seemed to be tired. If it really wants to reach the final on Sunday, there’s a lot of work waiting.
    Not on the opponent’s side. After two games and 3 points it is possible, that Mora reaches the final. At the beginning of the tournament nobody believed that – except Mora itself.


    Davos - Team Canada 3-6 (2-2, 0-2, 1-2)
    2. (1:01) Leblanc (Richter) 1:0. 3. (2:15) Naumenko (Daigle, Reto von Arx / Penalty T. Wright) 2:0. 4. (3:04) Jamie Wright (Strudwick, Law) 2:1. 9. Roest (T.

    7 x 2 minutes Davos, 8 x 2 minutes Team Canada, Att: 7,080 (F)

    Davos: Hiller (58. Genoni); Winkler, Crameri; Blatter; Khavanov; Jan von Arx, Richter; Naumenko, Müller; Riesen, Reto von Arx, Daigle; Petrov, Marha, Burkhalter; Nittel, Rizzi, Leblanc; Somervuori, Taticek, Ambühl.

    Team Canada: Pogge; Heins, Harrison; Doig, Syvret; Strudwick, Scalzo; Bright; Law, Kolanos, Jamie Wright; Gardner, Pittis, Maneluk; Tyler Wright, Roest, Herperger; Reid, Brent, Holden.

    Team Canada still has a clean record. In the tournament’s classic par excellence, the North American team beat the HC Davos 6:3. This although Davos led by two to nothing. Their fighting nature and coolness in front of the opponent’s goal leaded the Canadians to the 2nd victory in the 2nd game and perhaps to the final. Even a major mistake could not discomfit the North Americans. After somewhat more than two minutes and goals by Robin Leblanc and Nick Naumenko, the score was 0:2 from Canadian point of view. But the Team Canada was not shocked at all - six minutes later, the score was tied.
    The second goal against the HC Davos was very unfortunate because defender Gian-Marco Crameri redirected a shoot from Stacy Roest into the own goal.It was hard and nearly impossible to stop the Canadians because of their perfect transition.On the other side there were many inaccuracies in the structure of play, which led after a high-class first period to a break in the play of Swiss team. A penalty flood of the HC Davos between 26 and 28 minute was play crucial. The Team Canada could act over 200 seconds in double majority. But the Canadians would not be Canadians, if they had needed the entire time. They punished the HCD with goals by Krys Kolanos and Kirby Law within 33 seconds.The HC Davos lost now not only completely its order, but also its head.
    Their confused attacks in the power play led in the 43 minute to the shorthanded goal by Chris Herperger to the 2:5. A little later resulted for Domenico Pittis and Stacy Roast still further possibilities in the box play. Although Josef Marha could reduce the tree-goal-handicap to just one, the victory oft the North Americans was never in danger. This was primarily because of the fact that they increased clearly in the defensive in relation to the play yesterday against Mora IK.

    Penalties: 5 x 2 minutes Berlin, 5 x 2 minutes Khimik. Att: 6,171
    /Users/karstenskjalm/Desktop/GATS 2006.pdf
    Berlin: Dshunussow; Hirschi, Brimanis; Cole Jarrett, Wharton; Roach, Quint; Draxinger, Jillson; Mueller, Patrick Jarrett, Ustorf; Aquino, Monnet, Rankel; Walker, Pederson, Paterlini; Felski, Beaufait, Fairchild.
    Khimik: Kolesnik (47. Barulin); Bykov, Balandin; Semenov, Homitskiy; Titov, Puyats; Kruchinin, Metlyuk; Mikhail Sevostyanov, Sergey Sevostyanov, Boykov; Sirokov, Leschev, Mozyakin; Pavel Vorobiev, Schastliviy, Glukhov; Pronin, Ilya Vorobiev, Krikunov.

    Notes: 33. Pederson got injured. – 14. Shot on goal post by Leschev. – 30. Shot on goal post by Bykov.

    Best Players: Sven Felski / Alexander Titov

    The first two points for the Berlin Polar Bears on the 80th Spengler Cup. The German Champion beat the Russian representative Khimik 4:1. The Germans took the chances they had and that made the difference.
    The HK Khimik Moskovskaya Oblast (Moscow region) was considered as one of the favourite teams for the title. But after two games they are the most disappointing team of the tournament and without any points at the end of the table. The Russian team seems to have problems with the offensive pace of the other teams and they are very unlucky in front of the opponent’s goal.
    Even tough they played better than yesterday against Mora (0:5), it was not good enough to win the game.
    Man of the match was an origin Kazakh player of the Berlin Polar Bears. The 20-year old goaltender Daniar Dshunussow performed at his best and did many miraculous safes. Even though he was very lucky two times, as Khimik hit the goal post altogether he saved 37 shots on his goal. When the game was over, he immediately snatched the match-puck as souvenir.
    Dshunussow was obviously better than the opponent’s goaltender Kolesnik who is nevertheless the goaltender of the Kasakh National Hockey Team. After a mistake of Kolesnik, Sven Felski scored the 1:0 – the beginning of the end for Khimik.
    Dshunussow’s safes were demanded in the beginning and particularly as Ilya Krikunov scored the 1:2 in minute 34. Exactly in this pressure period Thibault Monnet started a counter-attack and Kyle Wharton scored the 1:3. During the game, the Canadian changed the position from defence to offensive, because Denis Pederson got injured.
    The scene which led to the 3:1 was symptomatic for the game and knocked the Russians out. In the last period they stopped their efforts, while Deron Quint scored the 4:1 for the Polar Bears. The team was supported by a group of fans during the whole match.

    Davos - Mora 4-1 (1:0, 1:0, 2:1)
    17. Somervuori (Riesen, Reto von Arx / Penalty Määttä) 1:0. 31. Riesen (Taticek) 2:0. 41. Brendl (Beaudoin, Skogs / Penalty Bastiansen!) 2:1. 52. Reisen (Daigle, Reto von Arx / Penalty Bergkvist) 3:1. 58. Daigle (empty-net goal) 4:1.

    Khimik: Barulin; Bykov, Balandin; Homitskiy, Semenov; Titov, Puyats; Kosmachev, Metlyuk; Mikhail Sevostyanov, Sergey Sevostyanov, Boykov; Leschev, Sirokov, Mozyakin; Bulyanskiy, Schastliviy, Pavel Vorobiev; Pronin, Ilya Vorobiev, Krikunov.

    Team Canada: Dubnyk (21. Munro); Heins, Harrison; Doig, Syvret; Strudwick, Scalzo; Bright, Murovic; Law, Kolanos, Jamie Wright; Gardner, Pittis, Maneluk; Tyler Wright, Roest, Herperger; Reid, Brent, Holden.

    Best Players: Alexey Sirokov / Mike Maneluk

    The HK Khimik got its first victory in its 3rd Spengler Cup match. With this victory the Russian prevented a premature final participation of the North Americans.
    Khimik was criticized very hard after its two first tournament plays. The team from the Moscow suburb Mytishi had a bad defence and in 120 minutes it had scored only once. What is possible, the Russian let the Canadians know today! Sometimes the game reminded of last year’s final, when Team Canada was humiliated by the Russian representative Metallurg Magnitogorsk with 3:8.
    For the first time at this tournament, Khimik stayed cool and disciplined in front of the own goal and cleared all the rebounds. In addition, Konstantin Barulin did 41 saves and the team could rely on him. The 22-year old goaltender proved with his shut out, why he is considered as one of the most talented goaltenders of the Russian ice hockey. The defence was one key to win the game, the offensive the other one.
    The HK Khimik needed only 14 shots on goal in the first two periods to increase the score on 5:0. That shows that the team is able to be merciless and that it can use the chances to score. Furthermore the 1:0 was an own-goal by the Canadian defender Shawn Heins. Canadian goaltender Devan Dubnyk had no chance to safe the next two goals but nevertheless he was replaced after 20 minutes by Adam Munro.
    Due to the victory of the Russians the Spengler Cup remains as exciting as rarely before. After seven of ten round robin games, still no team is qualified for the final on Sunday. All of the five teams have the possibility to be one of the two final participants.

    Mora - Eisbären Berlin 6:1 (2:0, 1:0, 3:1)
    5. Bergkvis (Blatak) 1:0. 14. Brendl (Kurvinen / Penalty Elomo!) 2:0. 25. Granström (Kapla, Jardine) 3:0. 42. Simons (Brendl, Jansson) 4:0. 48. Kapla (Jardine, Granström) 5:0. 50. Brendl (Elmo / Penalties C. Jerrett, Beaufait) 6:0. 53. Roach (Fairchild, Felski / Penalty Wessner) 6:1.
    3 x 2 minutes Mora, 8 x 2 minutes plus 10 minutes (Aquino) Eisbären Berlin. Att: 5,923

    Mora: Pitkämäki; Skogs, Kurvinen; Bruun, Määttä; Jonsson, Blatak; Bergkvist, Huml, Elomo; Jansson, Simons, Nilsson; Johansson, Wessner, Brendl; Kapla, Granström, Jardine; Tuokko.
    Berlin: Ziffzer (20. Dshunussow); Brimanis, Jillson; Roach, Quint; Hördler, Cole Jarrett; Draxinger; Mueller, Patrick, Jarrett, Wharton; Walker, Beaufait, Felski; Aquino, Monnet, Fairchild; Martens, Rankel, Baxmann.

    Best Players: Pavel Brendl / Andy Roach – After the game Pavel Brendel was honoured as Mora’s best player in the Spengler Cup.

    In its last round robin game Mora IK beat the Berlin Polar Bears sovereign with 6:1.

    Tomorrow, the Swedish team has its day off and must wait and hope that the 5 points are enough to take part in the final.

    It was the 4th game within 4 days for Mora IK. Who thought, that the Swedish team has to be tired, was wrong at all. Already in the 5th minute Mora’s Kenneth Bergkvist scored the first goal. Until the 25th minute Mora increased to a three-goal-leading. Afterwards they defended clearly the lead and Berlin relegated to innocent bystanders. Mora attacked with all its 4 lines. Once more, the Czech Pavel Brendl was unstoppable. He scored twice and gave an assist. In the NHL Brendl was called a lazy genius but in Spengler Cup he scored seven points (4 goals). After the game the 25-year old forward was honoured as Mora’s best player in this Spengler Cup.

    The Berlin Polar Bears on the other side could not repeat their good performance from yesterday against Khimik (5:0).

    The losses of the two injured key players Stefan Ustorf and Denis Pederson were obviously too much. Head coach Pierre Pagé had had to change the lines.

    The Berlin Polar Bears scored their only goal in the 53 minute, when the match was already decided. Nevertheless Andy Roach’s goal had an important meaning. He is the only player who could defeat goaltender Juha Pitkämäki in this year’s Spengler Cup.

    The Mora goaltender had not been defeated for 125 minutes and 37 seconds until then.

    Canada should qualify for the final by beating the German Polar Bears tomorrow. Davos need to tie the resurgent (?) Khimik to reach the final. Otherwise, the spot will be taken by Mora.

    I've read somewhere that Spengler Cup would be broadcasted on Eurosport, but i can't find it. Does anyone know if it is true and will be broadcasted later on?

    All Spengler games are available on cif.

    I still don't know why Canada didn't even score one goal, they stunk the whole game. However you have to take into account this team is always put practically 3-4 days before the tournament begins, with very little preparation against club teams who play for 2-3 months.

    Here is a clip of sportsnet's reason why they think Canada lost.

    Don't forget that Team Canada also plays Deutchland Cup in November and Loto Cup in December. For some reason, they didn't play Loto Cup this year. There is however a tendency that the Team Canada of Spengler Cup has a distinct Swiss flavour.

    I was wondering something was missing from the Loto Cup this year, I don't follow the tournament anyway.

    Does this same Team Canada team play in the Deutchland cup? I'm certain most of these players were called up 2 weeks before the tournament.

    No, as I said the team Canada of Spengler Cup usually have a distinct Swiss flavour. The roster is predominantly expats playing in Switzerland. One reason is there is no international break at this point in time. I don't know whether this makes Team Canada weaker than in Deutchland and Loto Cup. The players probably know eachother better from the NLA and the teams the play for in this league, as well as previous appearences in Spengler Cup.

    In any case, Team Canada seldom fail in those tournaments, unlike Khimik which has been a disgrace until today.

    Ok, I was confused a bit by what you were saying, thanks for clearing it up, I already knew that by the way. :)

    Here is another clip of Team Canada trainig the little Swiss cheeses:

    Having looked closer into this, what makes Canada's Spengler roster special is that there are quite a few AHL players. Quite unusual, but probably because of Quinn.

    Pogge & Harrison (Toronto Marlies) Brent (Portland Pirates), Reid (Manitoba Moose), Scalzo (Iowa Stars) and Syvret (Grand Rapids) and then there is Jason Doig from Amur (RUS).

    Only Munro and Sarault played in Deutschland Cup.

    Well, A team Canada plays the various tournaments, but I'm not sure that the lineup is the same every time, which will in the end still need time for the new additions to jel with the rest of the team...
    It's always fun to watch though, just to see who's considered to be good enough to play for Canada.

    @Butcher I think only swiiss national TV channels SF2,TSR2 and TSI2 broadcast all games live - those channels are broadcasting from sattelite Hotbird 13 deg. east and unfortunately aren't free - you need a card to watch those channels or ... like me,watch for free with a sat dish and little investigation.

    Okay. I know where to find the games, but it would be funnier to see them live of course.

    good canada win over a tired german club, 5-2. kudos to Eisbaren Berlin, 2 games in 18 hours is very tough.

    so its either canada/Mora or canada/Davos, depending all on the Khimik/Davos game tonite.

    davos wins, they are in. davos loses, Mora will be in the final.

    (Hopp DAVOS HC!!!!!)

    Not quite, Davos lost but is still in the final. They lost in OT and gained 1 point, and sice they beat Mora (also 6 points), they proceed to the final.

    Davos has won the 2006 Spengler Cup with a 3-2 victory over Canada!

    Congratulations to Davos.

    Apparently, Justin Pogge misplayed the puck on the winning goal.

    I wish we got TV coverage here in the USA. :(

    Can anyone tell me (other than Davos & Canada) on what basis competing clubs are invited to play in the Spengler Cup? Who decides?

    I think it would be great to see an AHL team compete in the future, or even a major junior or NCAA Division I team. Or perhaps a national squad like Hungary, Britain, France, Japan, or even Israel.

    The Rochester Amerks competed in 1996. I'm getting a tape of their game against Davos.

    I knew that the Amerks competed....I think they are the only AHL team to do so. My recollection is that they finished in 3rd place. I would love to get a copy of the tape. Can you burn me one if I send you a blank and pay for postage?

    I would love to see an AHL team compete again, especially one like the Amerks or the Hershey Bears, who both have rich traditions. The Chicago Wolves also have a great (although shorter) tradition, and would be a good choice.

    I was looking at photos from the Spengler Cup and noticed that every team had a similar jersey template.

    I know that the Spengler Cup provides the uniforms but where do they get the design? Is it HC Davos's uniform design they copied for all uniforms? And why is it that teams have special uniforms for just this tournament?

    Just curious, thanks for answers.
