HC Kosice in play-off finals with HKM Zvolen

In the semi-finals Kosice dealt with Nitra and Zvolen with Piestany, so now these two teams are in the finals of the ice-hockey Extra League 2012/2013 season. The fight for the twentieth title in the independent Slovakian league sees first-place Zvolen up against second-place Kosice. The final series began with two matches at the Zvolen rink, on Sunday, April 7 and Monday, April 8. The home team decided the first match 2:1 in their own favor, but only in a penalty shoot-out.

The next two games will be played at the Steel Arena in Kosice on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12.
