Two vastus lateralis biopsies were obtained either during the game (n = 7) or pre- and post-game (n = 6). Venous blood samples were drawn pre-game and at the end of the first and last period (n = 14). Activity pattern and physiological responses were continuously monitored using local positioning system and heart rate recordings. Further, repeated-sprint ability was tested pre-game and after each period.Results: Total distance covered was 5980±199 m with almost half the distance covered at high skating speeds (>17 km·h-1). Average and peak on-ice heart rate was 84±2 and 97±2{\%} of maximum heart rate, respectively. Muscle lactate increased (P≤0.05) more than 5- and 3-fold, while muscle pH decreased (P≤0.05) from 7.31±0.04 pre-game to 6.99±0.07 and 7.13±0.11 during the first and last period, respectively. Muscle glycogen decreased by 53{\%} post-game (P≤0.05) with ~65{\%} of fast- and slow-twitch fibers depleted of glycogen. Blood lactate increased 6-fold (P≤0.05), while plasma free fatty acid levels increased 1.5- and 3-fold (P≤0.05) after the first and last period.
