  3. As HC Davos Dynamo's round 1 success has been celebrated in the VHL media and by their fans, Pat Svoboda's postseason re-emergence has gone somewhat under the radar. The Swedish right wing struggled during the regular season, but has tallied 5 goals and 3 assists in 8 games in the playoffs. "I guess I just saved all my goal scoring for the playoffs, and actually, that's when it matters, that's when you need to score. I got things clicking a bit for me finally at the end of the regular season, but then I really hit my stride in the playoffs and the rest is history. I think the coaches have noticed the difference, because they've given me extra ice time and I've capitalized on it. I'm known to be a bit of a streaky player, but now's the perfect time to get hot and start lighting the lamp. I knew I had the skills and the grade A shot to perform at any level of competition, but I just needed to start getting results to prove it. And now I have, and I'm quite satisfied with the way things have gone for me personally and for the team," said Pat Svoboda.
  4. After a long-standing playoff drought, the HC Davos Dynamo found it within themselves to overcome the stigma of their past and advance to round 2. But not only did they advance; they advanced in commanding fashion, dominating a long-time top contender in the Riga Reign. Davos came away with a 4-0 sweep, but in order to pull that off, it required some heroics in game 3, where they edged Riga in OT 3-2. Katie Warren scored their first goal of the playoffs to win the game, and it couldn't have come at a better time. The first two games in the series were comfortable wins, with Davos winning 3-1 in Game 1 and 4-1 in Game 2; Riga's offensive efforts were meager at best. Davos finished it off with a 2-0 shut out win in Game 4 to put an exclamation point on what was an excellent performance from their entire crew. The defense was lights out in the series, and the offense didn't miss any golden opportunities to bury the puck. That was the difference in the series: execution. Davos executed their plan to perfection and Riga didn't have an answer for it. The players were elated coming off of the victory during their talks with the media before round 2, and seemed ready to tackle whatever opponent they would face next. The Helsinki Titans, however, presented much more of a challenge in round 2 and would not be walked over; things right now look quite grim for Davos' Cup hopes, with the Dynamo trailing 3-1 in the series. It's quite a wide margin to trail by in this sort of series, and it got to this point by a series of mishaps out on the ice. They lost game 1 4-2 and game 2 4-3; allowing that many goals is devastating against such a ferocious opponent. Davos did get one win by smothering Helsinki's offense in game 3, earning a 3-1 win. But Helsinki extended their lead and forced Davos to the brink of elimination with a crushing 4-2 victory; again, allowing 4 goals proved to be too much to give Davos a chance to win. Now, Davos must win Game 5 to stay alive, but things aren't looking bright; they'll need more out of their goaltender. Finn Davison needs to play like he did during the Riga series and their game 3 victory for Davos to have a chance at pulling off a comeback. At the least, at least Davos won't have been swept in the way Riga was, because that would be an embarrassment for the players who have been suffering a long time to get this chance; they don't need their morale crushed that way. It's not over yet, but it's looking like Davos will need a miracle to just even up the series, let alone emerge the victory. Whatever the case, Davos will be looking for someone to play the hero in game 5 and the players should be playing as if they have nothing to lose.

  8. It has been confirmed that the HC Davos Dynamo will reach the playoffs after a long-standing drought, and struggling Davos right winger Pat Svoboda chimed in with his thoughts. "After such a depressing season for me personally, this is the sort of good news I needed to hear to lift my spirits. It's like a cloud has been hovering over me, and I was so caught up in my own misery that I zoned out in a way, didn't even notice the standings. But now, the postseason, for me will be a chance for redemption, and it'll be a whole new experience. I've never been in the playoffs before, and I have no idea how we can match up against Riga, but we can try. I just want to see what it's like for myself and put up a good showing; I want to be last season's Pat Svoboda during the playoffs. The whole team is very pumped and we want to win. We're willing to do whatever it takes, so now we just have to wait for the last three games to be over with and then the real season starts. It would all feel so much better if in a week's time, me and my teammates are hoisting a cup over our heads," said Pat Svoboda.

  10. In what has been a forgettable and disappointing season for Pat Svoboda, the Swedish right wing is attempting to find some glimmer of hope and salvage his numbers a bit. "Well, I guess on a team that's now packed with shooters on every line, from me to Dahlberg to Ryuu to Drago, you don't really need a volume shooter and my attempts have seemed to fall flat. But I'm glad I can at least say, while my personal regression is embarassing, I've reached double digits in goals, I just reached 10 in our last game. Who knows, there's still 16 games left, maybe if my shooting percentage corrects itself or I go on a hot streak, I can hit 20 goals before the season is over. I guess that's the best I can hope for, so that's my goal to finish out the year. Davos wants to hang on to third place and hopefully I can help us to do that, and then show up more in the playoffs for sure. I'm working on passing a little more since my shooting isn't working out, so if not I can put some sweet passes right on the tape and get some assists to help my squad," said Svoboda.
