In a thrilling ice hockey derby, the EHC Klostersee demanded everything from the Starbulls Rosenheim in front of a sold-out ranks.
The guests were prepared for extremely motivated and strong fighting Grafinger and lived up to their role in the 1:3 from the EHC point of view.
Grafing – The Wildbräu Arena was already full almost an hour before the start bully, and the atmosphere was already great during the warm-up.
While the red-whites used the warm-up time up to the last second, the guests finally tuned in in the dressing room.
Maximilian Vollmayer, who is not yet operational after surviving a viral illness, revealed which route was used for the first third: "No goal conceded and no penalty time."
The former worked, but the Starbulls allowed themselves a stay in the penalty box in the very intense first 20 minutes.
But the EHC did not capitalize on this.
Rosenheim was good in the box and defended very concentrated, so that the Grafingers could hardly find a gap to finish.
Lynnden Pastachak missed the best chance to take the lead before the guests were penalized (4th).
The Canadian had the 1-0 on his bat again when he started to break the man down, but after sprinting out of his own zone he no longer had the concentration to finish successfully (10').
The EHC was just complete again when it was 0:1.
Norman Hauner defeated Philipp Hähl from a tight angle (11th).
The striker, recently signed by the Bietigheim Steelers, was the most conspicuous player not only because of the following goal to make it 2-0 in the power play (15th).
Klostersee countered with the full number of players at eye level, but was immediately punished bitterly for two suspensions.
For the second period, EHC head coach Dominik Quinlan, who had been able to use four complete lines of attack for the first time this season, had to reduce his attacking skills to three.
The reason was bitter: Pastachak's game ended with an open flesh wound.
He was taken to the Ebersberg district clinic for treatment.
The Grafinger bit back into the action with a lot of willingness to run and commitment.
And they were rewarded: A run from the cross by Simon Roeder, who was back for the first time after an injury break of several weeks, opened the door for Vitus Gleixner to make it 1-2 (25th).
From then on, the EHC had a little more of the game, the Starbulls switched to counterattacks.
The decisive plus point for the guests was that, as the big favorite, they not only relied on the technical advantages of the game, but also accepted the fight.
In addition, the Starbulls defended very securely and without mistakes.
It was equalization or a decision for the final third.
The question was soon answered, youngster Kilian Kühnhauser scored from close range – 1:3 (46th).
That's where the Starbulls player flies: Manuel Strodel couldn't get past Klostersee's Nicolai Quinlan (right).
