The Steelers and the support team are currently on the longest away trip, because the next points are up against the Lausitzer Füchse today at 17:00. The game will be broadcast live on Sprade.TV. You can book here: www.sprade.tv
The Foxes separated from trainer Corey Neilson on February 1st. Co-trainers Chris Straube and André Mücke took over. The older Steelers fans will still be familiar with Chris, because from 2004 to 2006 the former German international played 110 times in Ellental and scored 73 points. André Mücke was the captain of the foxes until 2018 and is a cult player in Lusatia with 500 games. Under the direction of the duo, they scored six points in three games (wins against Landshut and on Friday in Bad Tölz). Only with the Kassel Huskies you had to admit defeat 2: 3. With 36 points you are in 11th place and have to score in order not to lose touch with the playoff places. The Steelers lost their first game in Lausitz 6-0. In Ellental they lost 3: 5, so it is time to get the first points against the Saxons.
The Clever Fit Top Scorer is Kale Kerbashian, who scored 14 goals and submitted 23. Rylan Schwartz is the second top scorer with ten goals. With Tomas Andres, Thomas Reichel, or Brad Ross, you have other dangerous attackers in the squad. With 78 goals, they scored the fewest in the league behind Dresden.
On the defensive, Nick Ross (brother of Brad) is the best with 17 points. Ondreij Pozivil and Nick Walters put a lot of experience on hold. 101 goals had to be swallowed in the previous 30 games.
In goal you have a strong man between the posts in Mac Carruth. The American catches 90.8% of all shots on his goal. He has conceded 3.05 goals per game so far. Tobias Ancicka, who made life so difficult for the Steelers on December 30, 2020, is not there. Eric Steffen serves as a backup.
With 14.9% of the special teams the power play is not exactly great, but against the Steelers they scored three hits in the majority of the two previous games. When outnumbered, it goes far better with 80.5%. Here you could already score four goals, behind the Steelers (nine goals) the second best value.
We wish the team a good trip to Lausitz and good luck in clinching the next victory! Keep your fingers crossed at Sprade.TV.
