Linz’s goalkeeper made the Eisbullen despair

After a quick lead, Salzburg suffered their third away defeat in a row.

The Eisbullen’s hoped-for liberation in the ICE Hockey League was a complete failure. After two bitter away defeats in a row, Salzburg also had to admit defeat in Linz on Tuesday. Despite Troy Bourke’s quick opening goal, the Red Bulls lost 2-1 to the Black Wings after a penalty shootout.

Salzburg were missing three regulars in Linz. In addition to Peter Schneider, who was injured in Bolzano, Chay Genoway and captain Peter Schneider also had to take a break due to illness. Nevertheless, the Eisbullen got off to a perfect start. After just 76 seconds, Troy Bourke scored to take the lead 1-0.

But the hit was by no means the start of a shooting festival. Quite the opposite. Although Salzburg Linz keeper Rasmus Tirronen was bombarded with shots, no further goals would be scored. A former ice bull of all people punished this. Nico Feldner equalized after he had been sitting in the penalty box seconds before (43′). Linz only became really dangerous in extra time. At least Salzburg keeper Atte Tolvanen was able to distinguish himself there. Tirronen was also unable to be defeated by Salzburg in the penalty shootout. This is how Graham Knott scored to win. “Unfortunately we didn’t capitalize on our chances again,” said coach Oliver David angrily. “It’s tough that we didn’t take three points today.”

The KAC, however, had no problems scoring goals. The Carinthians further extended their lead in the table with a 12-0 home win over Asiago. And Fehérvár also increased its lead over third-placed Salzburg with a 3-2 home win over Villach.
