It would seem Rabbits are dangerous when backed into a corner.
Facing elimination in front of a packed arena in Kushiro, The Seibu Prince Rabbits scored 4 unanswered goals as they defeated the Nippon Paper Cranes by a score of 7 -4. Takahito Suzuki scored a Hat Trick for the Rabbits in the win. The best of 7 Championship series now stands at 3 - 2 for the Paper Cranes.
Not only did the Rabbits stave off elimination and force game 6, but they also denied the Cranes a chance to clinch the championship on home ice. Games 6 and 7 (If necessary) will be played at the Suntory Higashi - Fushimi Ice Arena, Seibu's home arena, in Tokyo on March 22nd and 23rd.
