Best players of the game: Ondřej Machala - Richard Jarůšek.
Ondřej Machala scored the first and last goals of the game as Dynamo Pardubice won 4-1 on home ice over Sparta. Trailing 1-0, Richard Jarůšek (coming off his hat-trick vs Plzeň on Monday) brought Sparta back even in the 28th minute on an end-to-end rush and a shot off the post and in. However, just over a minute, Pardubice was back in front on Jan Kloz’s unassisted goal. Another Pardubice goal in the dying seconds of the second period gave Sparta a tough task for the last 20 minutes, and they just could not beat Milan Klouček again.
