The game was particularly important for the legendary Frantisek Ptacek. He has finished his career, but he was given the opportunity to play one shift against Brno and rounded the number of games played in extraliga at number 1210. The game was very exciting and most of the time the home team was better and had more shots on the net. Kometa led in the third period 2:1, but the goals of Cernoch and Jarusek were a turning point to 3:2 for Sparta. Six seconds before the end of the regular time the guests matched the score. In an extension, Brno again pushed through and gained two points.
