Fast hockey has been played since the beginning, but the teams paid attention to the defense and the chances were brought up by the second half of the first period. In the 12th minute, Réway won the puck for Lapšanský, who did not surprise Parks up close. On the other hand, O'Donnell failed in two promising chances and Chovan's shot did not end with a goal, when Parks stopped the puck just before the goal line.
Slovan Goalkeeper held his team in the 23rd minute when he saved Poirier's breakaway chance. Košice was close to the goal in the subsequent power play, in which Réway hit the post of Parks’ goal. The Košice team were delighted in the 37th minute that they did not coincide during their own power play. But in the 39th minute, Slovan got their first power play in the match and O'Donnell with his shot overcame Sedláček - 0: 1.
In the 41st minute, after a breakaway, Matoušek did not prevail, but otherwise the final part was mainly about Kosice’s effort to equalize. Neither Lapšanský nor Klhůfek, who was caught by prompt were able to get the puck past Parks.
