As Jérome Reynard (Sport-Center) reported earlier today, EV Zug confirmed their protest right after last night's game. This morning, EVZ has withdrawn their protest. The single judge will not become active in this case, as the league informs. More information will follow in the afternoon.

Zug's protest revolved around Cory Emmerton's 4-2 in the 40th minute of last night's Game 2 of the semifinal series against Lausanne HC. Emmerton's shot hit the post, bounced back, hit Tobias Stephan's back and went in. The referees deemed it to be a good goal after consulting the video.

EV Zug complained that the referees had consulted the video images without having first made an "on ice" decision, as required by Article 2.8 ("On Ice" decision) of the Swiss Ice Hockey Video Regulations. In this regards, Swiss Ice Hockey comes to the conclusion that, taking into account Rule 99.2 ("Use of the video-goal judge to determine goals") of the official IIHF rule book and Article 2.8, communication on ice by the referees in this situation was not optimal.
