Martin vs Nitra by Sors
Martin is on eighth position in the Slovak Hockey League, with five-point advantage over Piestany, but with only two wins from the last ten games (2-0-2-6 20/28).
The hosts look to avoid a third straight loss at Martin Ice Stadium after those against Trencin on Feb. 7 (2-3) and Zilina last Friday (1-2), but I expect another difficult game for them, given the fact that Martin will face one of the most balanced teams in the league.
Nitra is in the race for the second position, as only one point separates this team and Zloven, ten rounds before the end of the regular season.
7-1-0-2 31/21 for Nitra from the last ten games in the league, as those two defeats came against the other two teams from top 3 (1-5 vs. Zvolen on Feb. 16 and 3-4 vs. Kosice last Friday), while the guests won eleven of their previous fifteen games against teams outside top 4, eight of them in the regular time.
Martin took a 4-3 win in the first game between these two teams this season, but the guests won the next three (3-0-0 10/5), including their last meeting at Martin Ice Stadium on Dec. 26 (5-3).
I think that the guests will manage to win that game, most probably in the regular time.
