“I’ll see you in Munich”

“I’ll see you in Munich”

Markus Nisius23 Mar 2016Markus Nisius»

It is getting emotional in the DEL playoffs. After games 4 no team could finish a sweep. Instead Straubing came back against Munich and set some signs to go forward.


EHC München vs Straubing Tigers 3-1 (5-0, 2-1 OT, 4-0, 1-2)

The Tigers received another tough loss in Munich on Sunday, when David Leggio shut them out one more time and goals by Konrad Abeltshauser, Jerome Samson and twice Mads Christensen secured a 4-0 home victory to set the series to 3-0.

On Tuesday in Straubing the Tigers fought back and emotions were flying high. Sean O’Connor of the Tigers and Munich’s Steve Pinizotto were constantly trash talking and making some arrangements for the next meeting in Munich, which won’t happen though as Pinizotto received his second 10 minute penalty during the playoffs for a check to the head and will automatically miss the next game. O’Connor seemed not to be aware of that as he shouted over to him: “I’ll see you in Munich”.

Both teams did play hockey, too. Early in the second period Martin Hinterstocker banged in a rebound off a Maury Edwards shot. Edwards himself doubled the lead midway through the last period and due to a stellar performance of goalie Matt Climie Straubing only had to receive one goal a few minutes before the final horn.

The series will go back to Munich on Thursday.

Eisbären Berlin vs Kölner Haie 2-2 (0-3, 1-0 OT, 5-1, 0-4)

Both teams could get some easy looking wins if you just see the scores, but still the series is very tight. In Berlin the Polar Bears could take over the lead with a 5-1 victory. The Sharks looked a bit out of place that day, but found back to their tremendous defensive efforts they had shown before in the series on Tuesday at home.

Back in Cologne goalie Gustaf Wesslau managed to blank Berlin for a third time during the series in regulation time. And since Köln made good use of their powerplays, scoring all 4 goals with the man advantage, they could even the series to a 2-2 standing.

Iserlohn Roosters vs Nürnberg Ice Tigers 1-3 (4-0, 2-4, 1-4, 1-7)

The Roosters have really fallen behind in this duel. The Ice Tigers are making a great job in locking down one of the most dangerous offensive lines in the league. In Iserlohn they came out concentrated and blocked the known Iserlohn rush in the first minutes and even came out with a 1-0 lead after the first period, a feed not achieved by many teams this season. With that positive experience backing them up, they went on to win the game in Iserlohn 4-1.

In Nürnberg they started, where they left off in Iserlohn. With 7 different scorers and only Marius Möchel having a 2-point night the Ice Tigers thrashed Iserlohn with 7-1 to establish 3 match pucks going forward.

Wolfsburg Grizzlies vs Düsseldorfer EG 3-1 (1-4, 3-2, 5-1, 1-0 OT)

Wolfsburg managed to pull away. At home in game 3 Gerrit Fauser scored twice in the third period to lead the game towards a 5-1 victory for the Grizzlies. Back in Düsseldorf it was more a goalies’ game. Both keepers Mathias Niederberger and Felix Brückmann kept their crease clean for 70 minutes before Brent Aubin played the role of the Grinch for the home crowd and won the game in overtime.

Wolfsburg will enter the next home game with the chance to close the series.
