Incredible young Red Bulls beat Linz in overtime Goaltender Simon Wolf with outstanding performance // win2day ICE Hockey LeagueEC Red Bull Salzburg won the home game of the win2day ICE Hockey League against Steinbach Black Wings Linz in front of a vocal crowd with a significantly rejuvenated team due to many absences with 2:1 after overtime and literally outdid themselves.
Finland's Kalle Myllymaa scored his debut goal in the second period to take the lead, which Linz equalized in the third period. Mario Huber then scored in the final minute of extra time to secure the second point, backed up by the superb goalkeeper Simon Wolf. The Red Bulls thus go into the international break as league leaders.

Highlights Red Bulls vs. Steinbach Black Wings Linz | 5.11.23
Game recap The game started without much ado, the Red Bulls were more active at the beginning and had the first opportunities. Paul Huber (4th) in the powerplay directly in front of Linz goalie Rasmus Tirronen and then Tim Harnisch (7th) on a breakaway after a pass from Paul Huber. The home side continued to set the tone, but the Black Wings got into the game better. Brian Lebler tested Salzburg's 19-year-old goalkeeper Simon Wolf from close range in his second ICE game (13'). This was followed by a good spell for the visitors, with a number of dangerous shots. But the Salzburg defense was on its toes and the Red Bulls pressed again in the final phase, albeit without any compelling shots on goal. Florian Baltram had one from close range (18th), followed shortly afterwards by Devin Steffler at full stretch (19th). After the first period with three and a half powerful Salzburg lines, the teams went into the first break goalless.
The second half was up and down. Florian Baltram had the first top chance (23') free from the half-high slot. Two minutes later, Linz's Emilio Romig took a good shot and Simon Wolf plucked it down. The game continued at breakneck speed with alternating opportunities until the 28th minute, when Kalle Myllymaa gave the Red Bulls the lead in his second ICE game. The 21-year-old Finn from the Red Bulls' AHL team scored from an acute angle over the shoulder of Rasmus Tirronen. The visitors then put pressure on the goal in two overtime games, but Simon Wolf and his front men held out and then had a very strong phase with several chances in which the puck luckily for the Linz team did not go into the net. After a highly exciting second period, the Red Bulls took the 1:0 lead into the dressing room.
And it became even more exciting, with both teams creating chances in quick succession. During a good powerplay by the visitors, the Red Bulls closed in on the goal and didn't let anything through. The Red Bulls were always close to the man and had the next big chance with Peter Schneider, the captain received the pass from Philipp Wimmer directly in front of goal (53'). However, the visitors equalized in the same minute, Shawn St-Amant scoring free from half-distance. The game went into the final phase with an open goal, in which the visitors had the better opportunities, but extra time ultimately had to decide the outcome. Linz had more of the play in this period, with Simon Wolf once again making two monster saves. And then Mario Huber put the disc into the net in poor visibility for the Linz goalie (65') and secured the incredible victory in overtime.
Statements Oliver David & Mario Huber
Forward Mario Huber
"I was pleased for the team. We put so much work into the 60 minutes plus overtime. The boys did an incredible job. We had so much positive energy on the bench and we knew before the game that if we just play, we'll look good. We had a blast playing with the boys today and in the end it just worked out."
