From careful defense in the first period, Boleslav went forward and achieved success. Osburn opened the scoring in the 16th minute.
Their defensive magic stopped working in the 33rd minute. On the power play, Cingeľ flipped the puck in front of the goal on the backhand and beat Novotný.
Holík completed the turnaround in the 36th minute.
But Kometa did not win. In the 54th minute, Mladá Boleslav rejoiced after Lantoš’s equalizer, but prematurely. The referees first recognized the goal even after consulting with the video, but then Komety Modrý took the coach’s challenge and on the second attempt, the video already found the offense – the passer Rohdin played with a high stick.
Brno scored at home for the fourth time in a row, of which they won three games and are fifth.
