The Amur Tigers will host SKA-1946 in the MHL match. Will the hosts be able to fight?
The Amur Tigers will no longer be able to interfere in the fight for a place in the playoffs, so they finish the regular season, enjoying the process. In addition to the process itself, the team often pleases itself with positive results and points scored. In the four previous matches, the Amur Tigers won two victories. First we won 4-2 against Typhoon, and then we lost 1-2 to him in overtime, and then we coped with Typhoon in the first match already on our own court (2-1), but lost in the second (1-6).
But SKA-1946 continues to upset both itself and the fans, playing poorly in terms of quality, and disgusting in terms of results. After the first three matches of 2022, the Army team had two wins and a loss, and in the next five matches they performed terribly, suffering four losses, three of which outside the regular time. Even the Captain, who closes the Western Conference standings, has become a problem. If SKA-1946 won 5-2 in the first match, then lost in the second (5-6 after the shootout).
Statistics and figures:
- The Amur Tigers won two of the previous four games;
- SKA-1946 won in one of the last five matches;
- The Amur Tigers lost SKA-1946 in 22 previous games.
SKA-1946 is in bad shape, regularly missing at least two goals. I think that the Amur Tigers should take advantage of this by scoring at least three goals.
