Carinthian ice hockey striker Michael Raffl was in action on Sunday evening against an unusual backdrop. Raffl and the Philadelphia Flyers played the NHL open-air game against the Boston Bruins in Lake Tahoe, California, and were beaten 3: 7. The game at 1,900 m above sea level began in the sunshine and ended after dark.

The standout player on the ice was Boston’s David Pastrnak with a hat trick. Due to positive Covid-19 tests, the Flyers had to do without forwards Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek, Travis Konecny, Oskar Lindblom and Scott Laughton as well as defender Justin Braun and thus six regular players. Raffl therefore moved into the second storm line and received over 16 minutes of ice age.

Sunday’s NHL Results: Boston Bruins – Philadelphia Flyers (mit Raffl) 7:3, Washington Capitals – New Jersey Devils 4:3, Ottawa Senators – Montreal Canadiens 3:2 n.V., Vancouver Canucks – Winnipeg Jets 3:4 n.V.
