15.1. 19:15 HDD Olimpija Ljubljana - EC Red Bull Salzburg 2 @1,926 5/10 Pinnacle
Salzburg won all three matches this season convincingly with at least 3 goals difference. There are only 3 rounds left and then teams will be divided in two groups: first 6 (automaticly in playoffs) and last 6 (only 2 best are going in playoffs). All points gained by then will be erased and new ones, depending on clasiffication after these 3 round, will be added. Both teams have now 43 points so this is a direct fight for some additional points in so called Losers stage. Why on Salzburg? Olimpija is quite a different team without best player in EBEL, Mursak, who returned to Detroit and it shows in their play. In addition second most important figure in their team, goalie Kuhn, is banned for 3 games, so unexperienced Boh will be in goal. Salzburg lost two straight games without scoring a single goal. Something unimaginable but it happened. They are for sure the most attacking minded team in the league with probably best individuals in the team, so I expect some goals today from them.http://www.oddsporta...g-1355690/#ah;2FT: 1-5 15.1. 19:15 EC VSV (h-1,0) - HC Orli Znojmo 1 @1,901 3/10 Pinnacle
I expect another strong performance from VSV today. They've beaten Salzburg and Vienna and got 1 point out of Carinthian derby, they have only two OT defeats in last 7 games, other 5 victories in 60', so they are the in-form team of the league. Znojmo still have some hope for reaching top 6, but I think it's almost immposible (next round they play against Salzburg), so they have to win at least one of these two games. I rate them as a team that should be fighting for some 9th or 10th place but due to heavy start of the season they are where they are. Now it's time to play each game as serious as you can, so there will be no underestimation from the other sides. If VSV takes this one as they are suposed to, then they should win this one.http://www.oddsporta...o-1355689/#ah;2FT: 7-4
