Lesedauer: ca. 1 Minute
Both teams had to do without some players due to injuries, Munich even started with only three rows after they had a very exhausting game in the CHL two days earlier.
Augsburg’s last new signing Matt Puempel opened the scoring – the first third, however, remained very balanced, as did the result, Philip Gogulla equalized almost two and a half minutes later.
After TJ Trevelyan and Scott Valentine had given the Panthers a 3-1 lead with a slap shot from the blue line, Jonathon Blum was able to connect Munich. After a tough check from Scott Valentine, the main referee even had to completely remove him from the ice after using the video evidence. The Augsburgers automatically had to play five minutes short. Trevor Parkes was able to quickly equalize in the majority, when Adam Payerl was also sent to the penalty box, it was Zach Redmond who scored the Red Bulls’ first lead. Augsburg still had the equalizer on the racket, but the target only hit the post.
Not a single penalty in the final section made the Augsburg audience – the Curt-Frenzel-Stadion was very well filled with over 5600 spectators – just hotter for the rest of the game. Magnus Eisenmenger then equalized with his first DEL goal 15 minutes before the end. The game remained rough and lived up to the name Derby, but no goal was scored.
Extra time had to decide it: Less than two minutes were played when Vinny Saponari shot the target past Munich goalkeeper Daniel Fiessinger with a backhand that was well worth seeing. The Panthers were able to win this home game as well. On Sunday, October 17th, the Panthers will go to Krefeld.
