The final of the playoffs in the ice hockey Extraliga is tied at 2:2 after Liberec beat Sparta 4:1 at Prague’s O2 Arena on Tuesday evening. Victory for the hosts would have put them within one win of lifting the title in the best-of-seven series. Liberec goaltender Marek Schwarz, who was preferred to usual starter Ján Lašák, made a major contribution to the victory. The series continues at Liberec’s stadium on Friday.
