Moser Medical Graz99ers will visit title favorites Salzburg tomorrow, Sunday. The Graz team wants to bring an aggressive style to the ice again and, above all, act more efficiently in front of the opponent’s goal.
Graz dominated the match against Vienna Capitals and also showed a strong physical performance against Capitals. The visitors were partly credited with the victory that evening, as all three goals conceded resulted from three dangerous errors committed by the 99ers. Above all, they conceded 1:2 in a match of their strength. “This should not happen and I don’t want to see that again,” coach Johan Penerborn said. Otherwise, Graz showed good combinations, shooting from all positions, but wasting great scoring chances. Cubs goaltender Steen also had a great day.
The Graz99ers will be guests at EC Red Bull Salzburg tomorrow. The Bulls are also considered favorites to win the title this year, with Mozartstadt clearly beating EC KAC 4-1 last night. The Bulls have a very wide squad and there is similar pressure within the team. The Bulls produced a strong performance in the match against the record holders and confirmed their title ambitions.
But the residents of Graz do not want to be impressed by this and will continue to disturb the residents of Mozartstadt tomorrow. “We have to play just like we did against the Vienna Capitals. It doesn’t matter if it’s the KAC or the Pittsburgh Penguins. We’re a good team, we have to believe in ourselves, and Sunday will be game No. 2,” says Kittinger, pointing the way.
