The last time two teams met the Austrian team had a huge win over the Bears in Sisak.
Since that match, the Bulldogs won 3 matches and lost 8. During that span, the 8 games lost were all in a streak with two coming in overtime.
They lost to Fehervar (in overtime), Klagenfurt, Graz, Vienna, Salzburg, Bolzano, Znojmo and Klagenfurt again in overtime.
The wins came against Villach, Salzburg and Graz so they got some revenge on the teams that beat them before in Salzburg and Graz.
Currently, the team is in 9th place, one about the Bears. They played one more game and have 16 points.
If we look at the points their best players are Joel Broda has 11 points, winger Michael Parks has 10 points and so does defenseman Jerome Leduc.
In the net, they rely on Rasmus Rinne, with 14 starts he has 2.66 goals against average and 91.8% save percentage.
Since playing the Bears they also got Brock Trotter who in 4 games has 6 points so is definitely a dangerous player.
The Bulldogs have the lowest efficiency on the power play in the league with 12%, compared to the Bears with 15.1%.
With penalty killing the home team is at 80.4% while the Bears kill off 83% of them.
9.41% is the number that represents the Bulldogs scoring efficiency and for the Bears, the number is 7.67%.
Yann Sauve, the captain, leads the Bears in points with 9, tied with Sondre Olden. Another 3 players are tied with 8 points, these include Sébastien Sylvestre, John Armstrong and Jordan Samuels-Thomas.
The Bears will have a tough matchup but with the recent form they have shown their talent and will look to make it a good hard-fought match with the Bulldogs.
Let's all support the Bears together and help them towards the win on Tuesday 30th of October at 19:15. #ComeOnBears
