Reimer takes lead in DEL all-time goal scoring

Reimer takes lead in DEL all-time goal scoring

Markus Nisius16 Jan 2016Markus Nisius»

The duel between the middle of the pack teams Nürnberg and Hamburg had something special to offer in Patrick Reimer's record. In Düsseldorf a derby went to the Sharks, who could finally send out a life sign again.


Ice Tigers against the Freezers was supposed to be a game of two teams fighting for a good position to start the play-offs in. The Ice Tigers are currently trying to get one of the direct play-off spots, while Hamburg still has to fight hard to be at least in the pre-playoffs. And the game startet really well for Nürnberg. Marco Pfleger scored twice in the first period to give Nürnberg a 2-1 lead in the first intermission. In between his goals David Wolf could briefly even the game for the Freezers.

The second period saw Hamburg equalize once more in a shorthanded situation after only 2 minutes, but this was supposed to be the last time of the evening they were even with the Ice Tigers. Leo Pföderl and David Steckel established a 4-2 lead for Nürnberg before the second break and gave the game its final turn.

Although David Wolf could add his second goal of the night on a 5-on-3 powerplay in the last period, it was Nürnberg and especially Patrick Reimer, who had the last word. With 3 minutes left in the game Patrick Reimer scored his 263rd DEL goal taking over the lead in that all-time category. After the game Reimer mentioned that he, of course, is happy about that record, but his team's success still is more important and he expects Michael Wolf and Daniel Kreutzer to chase his record in the coming months as well.

Sharks with a life sign

In Düsseldorf the two biggest DEL rivals met for another derby. The host from the eastern Rhine side was obviously the favourite. Holding a 3rd place this season, the DEG had also dominated the last match-ups with the Sharks, while Köln itself lost the last three games and even fell out of the pre-playoffs. But sometimes being with the back against the wall brings out the fighting spirit.

Düsseldorf definitely applied a lot of pressure on Köln's defense, but Gustaf Wesslau was unbeatable that night. A 43-save shutout secured the Sharks a 3-0 win in the end as Sebastian Uvira and Jean-Francois Boucher managed to give the Sharks a 2-0 lead in the first half of the game. In the final minute Philipp Gogulla added an empty-netter to set up the final score.

The Sharks proofed there is character on the team, although the lack of discipline, resulting in what you would normally call too many penalties, still has potential for future worries. For the moment though Köln moved back into 9th place, while DEG stays in 3rd place behind Berlin and Iserlohn.
