For the 9th time in a row Red Bull Salzburg took 2 points. At Graz the EBEL leading team went ahead 2:0 early and showed strong defense, winning 2:1 in the end.

EC Red Bull Salzburg started strong in Graz and got a quick 2:0-lead with goals from Garrett Roe (5.) and Thomas Raffl (8.). The guests continued to dominate the game, while the Styrians on the other side had problems to get the puck out of their own zone. Nevertheless 99ers scored the 1:2 in the 27th minute: Guillaume Lefebvre got the puck in the offensive zone, passed to Olivier Latendresse, who surprised Salzburg goalie Luke Gracnar with his shot through the legs. After this goal the hosts were in the game and had good chance for the 2:2, but Manuel Ganahl and Latendresse missed good chances. Salzburg stayed dangerous, but failed the last pass.

In the last period Salzburg controlled the game. The best chance for Graz to equalize had Ryan Kinasewich in the 50th minute, but his shot missed the net and also the last attempts in the last minutes didn’t bring success.
