After falling behind 3-1 after the first 11 minutes to visiting Piráti Chomutov, a second-period goal by Jan Buchtele and another by Petr Kalina early in the third evened the score. With overtime looming, however, Lukáš Vantucha made sure that Chomutov left town with all three points, reaching behind Matěj Machovský to tap in the winning goal.
