"I am convinced that we will give our best in game 5. So stop speculating about the head coaching position," the team manager told the Corriere del Ticino. "We are not kicking him out in the middle of a series. This is not the time to change coach and staff."
Pelletier, for his part, told RSI that he was surprised by the report, but he was assured by Domenichelli that the rumors were not true. HC Lugano is currently 3-1 down in the series against the SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers. In order to stay alive, they will have to win tomorrow's game.
