Ice hockey league - Innsbruck ends negative series ++ Salzburg wins!

HC Innsbruck has returned to winning ways in the ICE Hockey League!

After the last three defeats, the “Haie” won 3-1 (1-0, 1-0, 1-1) at home against Black Wings Linz on Tuesday evening. Since Red Bull Salzburg won 5-1 (2-0, 0-0, 3-1) in Ljubljana, the Tyroleans remain third in the table behind the Austrian champions. The Vienna Capitals secured sixth place with a 6: 4 (2: 0, 1: 3, 3: 1) against VSV. Innsbruck, who had slipped from the top of the table, wanted to end their negative series. The fifth-placed players from Linz did not necessarily arrive as their favorite opponents, but the game went to the taste of the locals. Corey Mackin (19th) on the power play and Daniel Leavens (36th) shot out a 2-0 lead after 40 minutes. Stefan Gaffal scored the first goal at the beginning of the third third, Innsbruck had to tremble until the final minute before Lukas Bär hit the empty goal on the other hand, five successes en suite. This was initially not reflected on the ice. The “Caps” deservedly presented, Alex Wall and Jeremy Gregoire from the second line made it 2-0 after the first third. The VSV knew how to counter and didn’t need long to do so. Felix Maxa and Robert Sabolic scored twice within 37 seconds.During a turbulent phase, the Viennese almost immediately responded through Darik Angeli – but they couldn’t take the lead into the dressing room, as Andrew Desjardins shot 3rd place on the power play 18 seconds before the siren :3 concerned. And it continued in the key: Matt Bradley’s goal for the Capitals countered Maximilian Rebernig. The Viennese presented a fourth time: The 5: 4 by Lukas Kainz (53rd) should be the final door opener, Gregoire (59th) made the decision before the final minute. Ljubljana gave up after only one win in the past 14 games announced the resignation of head coach Mitja Sivic before the meeting with Salzburg. Salzburg didn’t let that bother them. Ty Loney and Peter Schneider scored in the first quarter of an hour, but the Slovenians didn’t pose any real threat after that either. At the beginning of the final section, the goal came as a surprise. However, Paul Stapelfeldt restored the two-goal lead less than three minutes later. The guests should not let this be taken away from them.
