Two very interesting tasks await the HC TIWAG Innsbruck-Die Haie next weekend. First the first Tyrolean derby rises Season in Bolzano, then the caps come to Innsbruck.
In the 3: 6 at home against the KAC last Sunday, Die Haie had to fight not only with their opponents, but also with themselves. The Tyroleans drew too many penalties, the master from Klagenfurt took advantage of it in the power play. Similar things shouldn’t happen against Bolzano tomorrow, says Haie head coach Mitch O’Keefe: “We have to stay out of the penalty box. At the same time, however, our special teams also have to take a step forward, more has to come. “
The South Tyroleans have recently shown themselves to be strong, defeating Salzburg in the Champions Hockey League away 5: 3 on Tuesday. As usual, a hot dance awaits the sharks in Bolzano.
The next day, on Saturday, the Vienna Capitals are guests in the TIWAG Arena. Coach O’Keefe expects his team to make amends for the last home appearances: “We have to offer our fans something, the last two home games were not the real thing,” said the coach. The Haie lost their first encounter with the Viennese away with 0: 3. For a long time it was 0-0, the Haie were the better team. On Saturday, this should also be evident in the result at the end of the day.
After a surprising 2-0 away win at the KAC, the Caps will take a 1-0 win against Laibach. Like the sharks, points at the weekend would do them good too.
