The Linz-AG ice arena is about to become a fortress. At least in preparation for the season. After the tests against Nove Zamky (4:2) and Bad Nauheim (5:0), the Steinbach Black Wings Linz also won against the Straubing Tigers – albeit narrowly 3:2 after a shootout.
The Black Wings started well, the guests from the DEL had to help themselves with a number of fouls, especially at the beginning. Already in the fourth minute of the game, Matt MacKenzie took advantage of one of these numerical superiority opportunities and scored to make it 1-0 (4th/pp2). Just five minutes later, the disc was once again in the net behind the Straubing goalie. Graham Knott scored – again in the majority – to make it 2-0 (10./pp). Practically immediately, the guests also wrote for the first time, and Marcel Müller made it 2-1 with a follow-up shot.
After Rasmus Tirronen made two successful attacks for Linz in the middle section in dire need, he was powerless when Marcel Brandt made a follow-up shot in the 35th minute. With a score of 2:2 we went into the second break and ultimately into extra time and the penalty shootout because neither the final third nor overtime wanted to make a decision. And even in the shootout it was tied 0-0 after five shooters each before Shawn St-Amant scored the decisive 3-2.
The Black Wings’ next game is the opening game of the new season next Friday in Ljubljana. As usual, we will report again in the live ticker.
