In an exciting game between two of the Extralig’s better teams, Oceláři Třinec beat Sparta 3-1 before 10,589 fans on a Sunday afternoon at O2 Arena. Sparta fell behind early on an unfortunate bounce, when Vladimíř Roth’s centring pass from the corner hit Matěj Machovský and went in the net. Sparta then went on the attack, had several chances, and finally tied it through Jan Buchtele, beating Šimon Hrubec top corner after some sustained pressure. The game remained 1-1 until Martin Růžička scored the game-winner on a Třinec power play with 6:40 to play. Sparta tried desperately to tie it up again, but Martin Adamský’s empty-netter with nine seconds left finished it.
