One of them is goalkeeper Michael Garteig. The Canadian has the best goals-against average (2.02) and one of the best save percentages in the DEL with 92.0 percent. However, he had to admit defeat to Wayne Simpson in the voting for Panther of the Month for December. The Ingolstadt top scorer set up 15 goals for his teammates last month, but will not be able to add to his tally in Munich. That's because Simpson suffered an injury at the start of the year.
Players such as Frederik Storm, Daniel Pietta and defenseman Matt Bodie ensure that the Panthers continue to score lively. Most recently, there was a 6:0 against Nuremberg.
Munich clearly ahead recently
Munich and Ingolstadt have met twice this season. In the first encounter in front of their home crowd, our boys won 3:1, and away they followed that up with a 6:3 victory. Currently, we have six derby wins in a row against the Panthers. On Sunday, the Red Bulls want to add a seventh - and get back on track.
