The Vienna Capitals and the KAC were the winners of the second games in the semifinals of the ICE Hockey League. Thanks to a 2-1 win against HCB Südtirol in the “best of seven” series, the Viennese equalized 1: 1, while the Klagenfurt team also won their second duel 3: 2 after extra time against Red Bull Salzburg. The third matches will follow on Thursday.
In Salzburg, the best away team in the league also needed a good deal of luck. The KAC got off to a better start and took the lead through Rok Ticar (14th). But Salzburg countered. After the “cops” had received two power play hits in the first game, this time they managed a double in the majority. Alexander Rauchwald (28th) and Dominique Heinrich (57th) turned the match into an alleged home win. But Ticar saved the Klagenfurters in overtime just 26 seconds before the end. There the record champions had the better end for themselves despite being outnumbered: Clemens Unterweger fixed the hard-fought 3-2 victory after 4:22 minutes of extra time.
