Poor awakening for the black wings
Klagenfurt. The nine-day break did not seem to be good for Black Wings ice hockey crackers. After four wins in five matches, the team beat from Linz to a 2: 4 (0: 3, 0: 1, 2: 0) defeat to record the champion KAC yesterday in Klagenfurt.
For the sixth time this season, the EHC survived, after just 8:28 minutes, "Rotjacken" survived 3: 0. The unfortunate goalkeeper Mike Ouzas then made the place of David Kickert unnerved.
So history repeats itself, it's not a good sign. The wings also lost 0-3 to Zagreb (5: 4 victory) and Villach (even 5: 4), but KAC is another caliber. A lot more talented that does not give tips easily out of hand.
"We can not afford us for any unnecessary disc losses," Linz co-star Mark Szücs had emphasized before the opening bulletin. That plan and reality are two pairs of shoes, but were ready after 31 seconds. A corner kick by Mario Altmann ranged 0: 1 by David Joseph Fischer. Marcel Witting (5th) and Nicholas Eric Petersen (9th) will stop EHC at an early stage.
Linz has fallen behind ten of their last 13 league games at least 0: 1, so much costs (mental) strength and are based on why the team at the moment is mediocre at best. It also changed yesterday the honor of Captain Brian Lebler to 1: 4 (44./pp) and 2: 4 (59th) nothing. Since Innsbruck won 3-2 in Salzburg, the EHC flew out of the six best.
In the second highest category, the Alper Hockey League (AHL), Zeller Eisbären has secured services by an experienced coach. Greg Holst, 64, born in Canada, former Austrian team-forward and champion of Villacher SV 2006, is now in the lead in Table 13. Thus, Holst, who succeeds former Linz junior boss Dieter Werfring, also Black Wings collaborator Ivan Korecky and Paul Koudelka under his wing.
