It was not a night to remember for Sparta on Monday, as the club suffered its first loss in nearly a month in a home game against Karlovy Vary. After the first frame concluded with the score tied at one a piece, Miroslav Forman and Jan Košťálek gave the home team a two-score lead in the second. However, Energie then responded with two breakaway goals by Tomáš Vondráček and following an uneventful overtime, the game went into the shootout, where the away club´s Jiří Černoch was the only one able to find the back of the net.
