Třinec have won the Czech ice hockey Extraliga after beating Liberec 4:2
on Sunday evening to achieve the same result on games in the best-of-seven
final series of the competition’s playoffs.
It is the second time Třinec have lifted the title in their history and comes eight years after their first triumph. Liberec were losing finalists for the second year in a row.
Exactly 50 years ago today, the Czechoslovak national ice hockey team beat the Soviets in the world championships for a second time, setting off a series of celebrations – which soon turned into protests, at times violent, against the ongoing Warsaw Pact occupation. Though a moral victory, in a sense it proved a Pyrrhic one.
Two NHL teams will begin their 2019-20 campaigns overseas. The Philadelphia
Flyers and Chicago Blackhawks will start next season in the Czech capital,
Both teams have Czech-born players on their rosters: Radko Gudas and Jakub Voráček play for the Flyers while Dominik Kahun and David Kampf are with the Blackhawks.
The Blackhawks last opened their season in Europe back in 2009, when they played the Florida Panthers in Helsinki, Finland.
