Sparta wanted to repay Hradec for the loss they suffered at their ice, and they were successful in the end. Hradec was in a one-goal lead after the first period, but Sparta answered with a goal by Jiří Smejkal in the second period. The third frame was the deciding one. Jan Buchtele scored the game-winning goal midway through the period, the Spartans then successfully defended Hradec’s powerplay, gained their thirteenth victory in fourteen games and secured their lead in the standings.
