Lugano-Zugo: analysis and highlights

Two goals by Martensson, two goals in powerplay, a wrist shot by Brunner and the incredible shootout scored by...Lorenz Kienzle.

Thanks to these four goals, Lugano won at the Resega by the result of 4-2 in game 2 and it's now 2-0 in the quarterfinal serie against Zug.

In certain ways, this game was really similar to the previous match at the Bossard Arena. Zug showed a better gameplay and territorial supremacy. Shedden's players have answered with sacrifice, defensive discipline, an amazing goalie and have scored in the right moments.

The first period closed with the result of 1-1, After Schlumpf's goal, Martensson (who played amazingly) tied the game after a fantastic play by the swedish line. The first ahead goal was scored by Brunner in powerplay. The number 98 was the protagonist of the unlucky owngoal that put the result on the 2-2. Before the second break Martensson scored again, after the post hit by Pettersson.

In the third period Zug tried to tie the game, Lugano was struggling a bit. With a breakaway Kienzle earned a penalty shot to close the game. In an enthusiastic Resega (6746 viewers), only a few believed that the number 16 could beat Stephan in the 1 vs. 1 duel. Lorenz scored instead, shooting in Stephan's five hole and the Lugano crowd went nuts. 

4-2 at the and of the game. See you again Tuesday in Zug for game 3.
