Samstag, 09.September 2017 - 5:15 - Vienna Capitals opened the 2017-18 Erste Bank Eishockey Liga season with a 9:1 win at Fehervar AV19, scoring five power play goals. EC VSV also celebrated a big 6:1 home win against Medvescak Zagreb. While Moser Medical Graz99ers got a win in Klagenfurt, Dornbirn surprised at Volksgarten. In addition, HC Orli Znojmo and HC TWK Innsbruck were successful in front of their hoe crowd.

It was the Hungarians to start the game better against last season’s champion Vienna Capitals. Gilbert shot from the side at the beginning of the game, then Sárpátki fouled, which resulted in a Vienna goal: after a save from Rajna Sharp put the rebound in the net. Fraser was the next in the penalty box, and Fehervar tied the game, Reisz shot from the blue line and it was Sárpátki who scored from close. In the middle of the period, Rajna showed the save of the game but 3 minutes later he didn’t manage to do so. Uotila got a penalty, and last year’s MVP Riley Holzapfel didn’t miss. After the goal, Uotila was back in the penalty box again but this time, Vienna didn’t score. 2 minutes before the end, Music hit the post. The second period started with a shot from Klubertanz, then Hartl tried to score. On the other end, Jyrkkiö tried to score, without success. 5 minutes into the period Vause passed to Rotter who didn’t miss and soon there was a three-goal-difference, as Holzapfer scored his second goal. Daniel Koger was penalized after the goal, but the biggest chance in the powerplay was from Fehervar, Gilbert missed a breakaway chance. After another penalty, Vienna scored again, McKiernan saw an opportunity, Rajna didn’t see the puck and the defenseman scored. For the first time this period, Fehervar played in a powerplay at the end of the period, and although the Hungarians managed to attack throughout the remaining time, they didn’t score, moreover, Taylor Vause scored his team’s sixth goal from a penalty shot. Fehervar started the last period in the powerplay, yet, besides youngster Szita Donát’s hitting the post no chance was made in front of Lamoreux’ net. Holzapfel scored a hattrick after another powerplay goal. Gilbert, Uotila, Erdély, Luttinen and Sárpátki could have scored another goal for Fehervar in a powerplay but the result remained 1-7. 7 minutes before the end, Krisztián Szabó had to sit out for 4 minutes after boarding and Vienna scored their fourth powerplay goal. In the last minute, in a Fehervar powerplay, Hartl finalized the knockout with a breakaway goal. Throughout the game, Fehervar played with a lot of mistakes, Vienna showed on the other hand, how good they are.

Dornbirn gets surprising win at Volksgarten
Dornbirn Bulldogs came out hard and it took Salzburg some minutes to take over command. Late in the period the visitors came close to open the scoring but Luka Gracnar performed well. In the middle frame the Red Bulls pressed for the first goal but DEC goalie Ronan Quemener and his defense stood tall. After the halfway point of the game Matt Fraser deflected Brian Connelly's shot for a Dornbirn lead. Early in the third Brodie Reid doubled the score but Julien Brouillette pulled one back with a two men advantage. Some fans maybe thought that Matt Fraser made the premarilary decision when restoring the two-goal lead but Alexander Rauchenwald and Alexander Aleardi, both on powerplay, tied it at three, With 29 seconds to go Ziga Pance lit the lamp again for a 4:3 road win.

Innsbruck opens season with derby win
It was a game at eye level right after the beginning with Andrew Clark missing the first chance. Bolzano also tried to hit them on the attack but Innsbruck did well defensively. After 13 minutes Clark made the breakthrough and the fans saw two more goals in the opening period. First, Alexander Egger tied it but soon later Mitch Wahl restored Innsbruck's lead. The second was a mere ten seconds old when Tyler Spurgeon's one timer gave the sharks a 3:1 lead. With the hosts missing some chances for a higher result, Anton Bernard scored out of nothing. In the third a Petan goal made it 3:3 but Innsbruck bounced back. New arrival Kevin Wehrs added a fourth off a Jesse Mychan pass. Bolzano failed to score in a final push while Andrew Yogan made the game safe - 5:3.

VSV with successful start against comebacker
The EC VSV won against league comebacker Medvescak Zagreb with 5:1. After only eight minutes the Eagles build a 2:0 lead. Andrew Sarauer and Markus Schlacher scored the first goals of Villach. Michael Boivin narrowed the gap still in the first period. The new captain of Villach Niki Petrik recreated the two goals lead in the second period, before Nico Brunner scored for the 4:1 in a rough game. The final decision was a product of the Petrik brothers: Niki served the puck to Benjamin for the goal. Valentin Leiler was responsible for the last goal of the game and the result of 5:1.

Znojmo booked overtime-win over Linz
In front of a loud crowd with supporters of both teams, the game began in a fast tempo. Znojmo opened the scoring at 2:13 when Jan Pohl´s shot from the blue line found way past Ouzas into the net. The visiting goalie could not see anything through traffic in front of the net. Pohl could add another one just three minutes later, but he missed Yellow Horn´s pass in front of the open net. Black Wings came back into the game midway through the first period when Broda fired in a rebound of Lebler´s shot. Schofield and Lebler had more chances on powerplays, but could not add another goal. 33 seconds after the break Linz went in front after a great solo action by Dan DaSilva, rounding the goalie and finishing into the empty net. Znojmo responded stongly and just two minutes later, Patrik Novak converted a lucky rebound which squeezed under Ouzas into the net. Emotions run high later in the period with few brawls and a 5-on-3 powerplay giving visitors big opportunity to get ahead. Also the third period was emotional and physical. Znojmo took the control, but Mike Ouzas kept his team alive. Radek Cip ended the new three versus three overtime after only 51 seconds and brought the win for Znojmo.

99ers succeeded with late double-strike
The EC-KAS lost the season opener against the Moser Medical Graz 99ers with 2:4. Both teams had less chances in the first minutes. Just after the 99ers overcame a shorthanded situation, Rheault took the lead for KAC. Only two minutes later Zintis-nauris Zusevics tied the game in powerplay. The 99ers had a big chance during an unclear situation seconds before the period ended, but the KAC prevented another goal with all their forces. In the second period David Madlener delivered a highlight with a spectacular save. After a couple of good chances for the KAC Oliver Setzinger took lead for the 99ers. Martin Schumnig tied the game again, still in the second period. Clemens Unterweger restored the lead in the last period. The final decision was brought by Daniel Woger with the 4:2.
