After two demoralizing defeats in Normandy, the Pioneers of Chamonix will meet again the Dragons of Rouen for the quarter-finals of the Ligue Magnus play-offs.
With seven players injured, the Pioneers of Chamonix seem like they are in rather a bad shape, but they are still determined to give their best shot at trying to win.
Numa Besson, the captain of the Pioneers, has declared for France Bleu: "It's disappointing - having struggled all season to reach the play-offs, we can not fight with all our weapons."
Furthermore, he says: "We know that Rouen is a favourite, but we hope to make two good games in front of our audience" and adds that they rely on their fans support.
Come and cheer for your favourite team!
