Another change in leadership in DEL2 – EC Bad Nauheim took advantage of the Frankfurt slip in the top game against Ravensburg with a win against the promoted team from Selb and passed the Lions again. In the table basement, a lot remains the same, he gave no points for the trio at the bottom of the table. Freiburg and Heilbronn, on the other hand, showed how to score goals and celebrated clear successes against Kassel and in Weißwasser.
The games at a glance:
EHC Freiburg – Kassel Huskies 7: 2 (4: 2, 2: 0, 1: 0)
Brilliant first third in Breisgau – four goals for the home side and a double by Jamie McQueen (3rd, 9th) for the guests made it 4-2 at the first break. After that it was a bit more dignified. Scott Allen (29th, 38th) finally brought the wolves to victory with his double pack. The Huskies did not appear on the scoreboard in the last section either, instead Scott Allen (56th) made his hat trick and the clear home win for Freiburg perfect.
Lausitzer Füchse – Heilbronner Falken 2: 8 (1: 1, 1: 3, 0: 4)
The game in Weißwasser was also clear, although it was still 1: 1 after the first third. But then Simon Thiel (21st, 40th) and Justin Kirsch (22nd) turned the pointers on the away win, although the foxes in the person of Jens Baxmann (32nd) were able to keep the connection for the time being – 2: 4 after 40 minutes. But then the Falken-Express really started rolling again: Kirsch (45th), Fabricius (47th), Volkmann (54th), Blackwater (59th) – final score: 2: 8, the third win in a row for Heilbronn.
Löwen Frankfurt – Ravensburg Towerstars 2: 3 (0: 0, 2: 1, 0: 2)
The top game on the Main initially missed goals. Ryon Moser (28th) and Rylan Schwartz (33rd) broke the spell on the side of the lions. From then on, the tower stars also noticed where the box was, especially Sam Herr (34th, 41st). He initially scored the connection goal and at the beginning of the final section, outnumbered, also equalized. But that was not enough from the point of view of the Puzzlestädter – Simon Gnyp (54th) shot out the first lead for Ravensburg, which then lasted until the final siren – 2: 3 at the end.
EV Landshut – ESV Kaufbeuren 3: 4 (1: 2, 1: 0, 1: 2)
Things got going on Gutenbergweg – after goals from Maximilian Hops (5th) and Florian Thomas (10th) for ESVK and the goal from Henry Martens (7th) it was 1: 2 after 20 minutes. Lukas Mühlbauer (37th) then equalized for EVL, before Fabian Voit (51st) and Markus Lillich (58th) decided the game in favor of the Joker – 2: 4. The late following goal by Marco Pfleger (60th) didn’t change anything – for the home side it was the sixth bankruptcy in a row.
EC Bad Nauheim – Selber Wölfe 4: 2 (2: 1, 0: 1, 2: 0)
The Red Devils started very committed and took an early lead thanks to a double strike from Fabian Herrmann (5th) and Jerry Pollastrone (5th). The newly promoted Selb struggled and came through Brett Thompson (10th) and Feodor Boiarchinov (32nd) in the middle of the game to equalize. In the final section, however, it was the Hessians who won the game: Tomas Schmidt (52nd, 60th) ensured the home win in Nauheim with his brace. Due to the simultaneous bankruptcy of the Löwen Frankfurt against Ravensburg, the Red Devils climb back to the top of the table.
Eispiraten Crimmitschau – Dresdner Eislöwen 3: 4 (2: 1, 1: 0, 0: 2, 0: 1) nP
Excitement until the very end in the Sachsenderby. After Philipp Kuhnekath (8th) had put Dresden in the lead, the ice pirates turned things around: Luca glasses (13th) and two Filip Reisnecker (18th, 27th) made it 3: 1. It stayed that way until three minutes before the end. But then Johan Porsberger (58th) and David Rundqvist (60th) actually saved the ice lions in extra time. This comeback was rewarded again in the penalty shootout. Only Jordan Knackstedt was successful and thus secured Dresden the derby victory.
Bayreuth Tigers – Tölzer Löwen 5: 4 (1: 2, 2: 1, 2: 1)
Torreich went to Bayreuth. The guests won the first third 2: 1, the second went to the domestic Tigers with the same result – 3: 3 after 40 minutes. In the final section, Christian Kretschmann (47th) set the course for a home win with a double majority. Thomas Merl (50th) had something against it. Ultimately, however, Ville Järveläinen (56th) made sure that all three points remained in Upper Franconia – 5: 4.
