After five straight wins, the Adlers recently suffered a 6-1 away defeat to the Pioneers. This simply was not the night for the Whites, who never found their way into the game.

EC iDM VSV Coach Rob Daum:

“What we showed against the Pioneers in Vorarlberg was not enough in all respects. They were always a step faster and were one step ahead of us that day. It will be a completely different match against Linz. We must be completely ready again and play with our strength as we did in the previous matches at home – We stay composed, avoid turnovers, don’t take unnecessary penalties, and are fully focused offensively again.

VSV captain Philipp Lindner also analyzes the country’s “slippage” in clear words:

“We were not good enough, we lacked everything: the desire to run, commitment and fighting spirit. This means that we have to play with our heart again, skate a lot, impose our game on the opponent and put the opponent under pressure from the beginning. Playing with the body will also be very important private!

Lindner added: We analyzed the match and decided it, and we will recover well and prepare intensively to face Linz.

Especially with my partners John Hughes and Robert Sabolek, the chemistry is perfect.”
