All Together Now
Olympic Ice Stadium, Munich – With six games to go in the regular season, EHC Red Bull München can see the end of the tunnel.
At the end awaits the light of the DEL Playoffs. If they can continue winning.
Munich defeated the Iserlohn Roosters 4-2 on Tuesday, finally seeing their hard work and persistence pay off in a big way. The win, combined with the Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers losing and Straubing Tigers only earning two points in a shootout victory, vaulted Pat Cortina’s club into ninth place in the standings and currently in a pre-playoff spot.
The work is not done. With control of their destiny, EHC will need to keep focused and not only maintain their spot with wins, but they will have to battle their Bavarian neighbors while doing so. It all starts Friday at home against ERC Ingolstadt, who currently sit nine points clear of Munich in the quarterfinals portion of the playoffs.
After that, a short roadtrip on Sunday west to Augsburg to tackle the Panthers who also are above EHC in the table in 7th. Next Friday, Munich will host the Ice Tigers, who will drive south from Nuremberg.
With multiple scenarios to be played out in just a week, there will no doubt be plenty of action on the ice in Bayern. For EHC, the time is now to come together and keep the eyes on the prize.
