Sparta returned to its usual winning form on Wednesday night, securing another set of three points up north in Liberec. The White Tigers took the lead in the first and Vladimír Sobotka later tallied the lone goal of the second, meaning the score was square before the start of the final period of regulation. Prague then proceeded to score four in the following twenty minutes and came away with the win after the home team was able to respond only once. Final score: 5-2.
