Red Bull Salzburg has impressively shaken off the low in the ICE ice hockey league with five defeats in a row. Two days after their success against Fehervar, the Bulls outclassed previous table leaders Graz99ers 10-2 on Sunday.
Salzburg went into the first break with a 2-1 lead against Graz and made the decision in the beginning of the middle third with three goals within five minutes. In the highest victory since January 2019, nine different players entered the list of goalscorers. “Every row had a really good move towards the goal. You can say that everything went well today. We never let up in the back either, and then the result was a bit high. But we like to take that with us, ”said the only two-time goalscorer John Peterka.
For the 99ers it was the highest defeat in 17 years, since a 9-0 defeat against the KAC on December 5, 2003. Bozen could storm into first place, although the Foxes played four games less than the Grazers.
