Decimated by injuries, a depleted Sparta team went into Chomutov and was beaten 5-0, although the final score was more one-sided than the actual flow of play. The Pirates were especially opportunistic on the power play, going 3-for-5. Jan Stranský and Andrej Valach were the two most dangerous Chomutov players, each recording a goal and two assists, and Canadian goalie Justin Peters made 22 saves for the shutout.
