Red Bulls with 3:2 battle victory in LjubljanaStrong defensive performance in final third saves the 3-pointer // win2day ICE Hockey LeagueEC Red Bull Salzburg prevailed 3-2 in their away game against HK SŽ Olimpija in the win2day ICE Hockey League and thus remain at the top of the standings.
After two game-dominating third periods and Salzburg's 2-0 lead, the Slovenians suddenly turned up the heat in the final third and even played for the threatening equalizer at the end, but the Red Bulls were able to prevent it with a compact defense. The Salzburg goals were scored by Peter Schneider, Troy Bourke and Mario Huber.
Statement Oliver David
Recap The Red Bulls immediately took charge and worked the opponent in his defensive zone. First good shots followed, at first not yet compelling. But the pressure increased, Dennis Robertson tested Ljubljana's goalkeeper Lukas Horak with a cracker from half distance (7.). In the 10th minute Peter Schneider put the Red Bulls in the lead, the 'shooter on duty' scored on the powerplay with a well-placed shot from the right face-off circle. The Salzburgers continued to dominate the game, but now had to increasingly watch out for dangerous forays by the home side. Goalkeeper David Kickert was challenged two or three times, but did a good job. The Slovenians had the best chance on a power play before the first break, but they were unable to break through Salzburg's defense.
Salzburg remained the dominant team in the second period, but was not as dominant at the beginning as before the break. Peter Schneider again had a top opportunity alone in front of goal (28th), shortly after Ali Wukovits on a breakaway with a backhand (30th). The Slovenians did not hide, however, and tried to combine quickly in front of the goal. But in the 37th minute the Red Bulls increased the lead. Lucas Thaler took a hammer shot from the blue line past the goal and Troy Bourke netted the puck bouncing back from the boards from an acute angle. Ryan Murphy, back after a two-game break, got in front of the net alone before the intermission siren, but it remained with the deserved Salzburg 2-0 lead after 40 minutes, after David Kickert also thwarted Aljaž Predan's good powerplay chance (39th).
In the final period, the home side relied on toughness and tried to stop the Salzburgers from playing. They had another chance on the power play in a game that got rough at times, but then Ljubljana's Maris Bicevskis took an almost unassisted shot from the face-off circle (49th) and scored with the inner bar to make it 1:2 from the home side's point of view. Olimpija became more courageous, played now on eye level with the Red Bulls and made the game fast. But just at the right time (56th) Mario Huber in the (wild) powerplay sank the disc with a violent shot in the net and restored the 2-goal advantage. But Ljubljana answered, Maris Bicevskis scored again out of a crowd in front of the goal to tie it up (59th). In the last two minutes, the Slovenians threw everything forward and once again caused a real alarm, but the Red Bulls fended off all attempts with their tight defense and managed to hold on for the 3:2 victory, which was nevertheless well-deserved.
