On Sunday HDD Telemach Olimpija Ljubljana welcomes Graz, trying to get the first season win in the third attempt. HDD Telemach Olimpija Ljubljana showed their potential once again when they had an exchange of blows in the road game against Linz. They played solid for long periods but suffered a 5:2 defeat in the end. “It was experience. Linz has more of it, than we do. We played well in the first 30 minutes, but made a couple of bad mistakes. As soon as they took over the lead it got hard to play against them”, summarizes head coach Ivo Jan. Recently they have gave away important points at home, getting only two points in their last six games at Tivoli. The Dragons also suffered tight defeats in the first two games against tomorrow’s opponent of Graz, losing 2:1 twice. “As soon as we start using our chances, it´s gonna get a lot easier for everybody. We still have a little work to do in the defensive zone, but we have some time left before the playoffs start, so we´re gonna work on that”, adds Jan. Moser Medical Graz99ers suffered a setback in the playoff race when falling 6:2 to Villach at home. With ten games left, the Styrians have a five-point deficit to the top six. In December they won as well as they lost two games on the road. “We need a winning streak to achieve our goal and a place among the top six is still our goal. The first two games against Olimpija were tough and I don’t expect an easy one coming tomorrow“, says Manuel Ganahl.
