Jakub Sedláček made 25 saves to earn his first shut out for Sparta this season, helping the team win its second game in a row, 3-0 over visiting HC Vítkovice Ridera. His biggest saves came in the third period with his team protecting a one-goal lead. After a scoreless and defensively played first period, Sparta opened up in the second period and fired 20 shots on the Vítkovice net. Early in the frame, Lukáš Rousek worked a perfect give-and-go with Kevin Klíma and opened the scoring with a quick low shot from the slot. That goal stood alone until the final couple of minutes of the game, when Steven Delisle and Matěj Beran added empty-netters.
