EHC Munchen vs Iserlohn Roosters by Sors
Munchen continue to impress, as the hosts have recorded seven wins in their previous nine games in October (6-1-2-0 38/23) and seek their ninth consecutive victory at Olympia Eishalle after those against Schwenninger (3-1), Eisbaren Berlin (4-2), Kolner (3-2), Augsburger Panther (5-2), Adler Mannheim (4-2), Bremerhaven (5-3), Straubing Tigers (6-3) and Krefeld Pinguine on Wednesday (3-2 OT).
Don Jackson's side is well known for its powerful offense and this season isn't an exception, as the hosts have totaled 64 goals in seveteen rounds (3.76 per game) and four or more goals in seven of their previous nine games this month.Brooks Macek (rw /17 10+7) is in red-hot form lately, with 8 goals and 3 assists over his last five games, Keith Aucoin (c /17 4+22) added 2 goals and 7 assists in this period, Derek Joslin (d /17 2+10) has one goal and 6 assists in his last five games, while Steve Pinizzotto (lw /16 9+8) - 3 goals and 3 assists.
Iserlohn Roosters are in obvious upswing lately, as after just two victories in the first ten rounds (2-0-1-7 19/40), the guests have recorded five wins in their last seven games against Krefeld Pinguine (5-3/away), Adler Mannheim (5-2/away), Straubing Tigers (4-3 OT/home), Bremerhaven (2-1 SO/home), Schwenninger (1-2/away), Grizzly Wolfsburg (2-4/home) and Augsburger Panther on Friday (3-1/home).In the matter of fact, Iserlohn Roosters limited their opponents to two or fewer goals in two of their three games under the lead of their new head coach Rob Daum, but now they'll face an opponents with a much more powerful attack compared to Schwenninger and Augsburger Panther.
On the other hand, Iserlohn's offense shows some signs of awakening lately, as the guests have totaled 25 goals in their last eight games (3.13 per game), compared to just 16 goals in the first nine rounds of the season (1.78 per game).
Jerome Flaake (rw /10 0+0) and Jonathan Matsumoto (c /14 3+6) are out for the home team, while Iserlohn Roosters will travel to Munich without Blaine Down (lw /16 6+3).
I expect more than five goals in that game between the teams of Munchen and Iserlohn Roosters.
