For Tanner Richard it is the first playoff game this season. The forward has missed all of their quarterfinal games so far due to an undisclosed injury. The Grenat thus only have to make do without Jonathan Mercier and Marco Maurer, whose season is over due to injury.
On HC Fribourg-Gottéron's side Samuel Walser has to sit out in tonight's game. He has been provisionally suspended due to a slashing against GSHC's Eric Fehr in Game 3 on Saturday.
