After some road losses at the beginning of the season, HC Slovan Bratislava showed a much better performance in their first home games. With a 4-2 win on home ice against Dinamo Minsk, Bratislava gained very important three points.
They were able to continue this streak in the next home games so that they collected more important counters. A 2-1 victory against Sibir finally pushed them up in the standings and away from the bottom places. They are now just two places away from the upper half of the standings and have a chance to get into the play-offs.
Therefore, they need to continue their performance against the next strong opponent, Avangard Omsk, in front of the domestic home-audience.
