Mannheim – Top favorite Adler Mannheim celebrated their first victory on the third day of the German Ice Hockey League. On Friday, the team of coach Pavel Gross won a 3: 2 (0: 0, 1: 1, 2: 1) against the Nürnberg Ice Tigers.

Ex-Nuremberg Jason Bast shot the eagles, who were only playing their second game of the season, a good three minutes before the end of the game to their first win in their first home game, which was attended by 5854 spectators.

Master Eisbären Berlin, on the other hand, landed the second win of the season in an easy 4: 0 (1: 0, 3: 0, 0: 0) at the Fischtown Pinguins in Bremerhaven. After the third match day, the Eisbären are third behind EHC Red Bull Munich, who already won 2-1 in Schwenningen on Thursday, and vice-champion Grizzlys Wolfsburg. The Lower Saxony wrestled the Düsseldorfer EG 2-0 (0-0, 1-0, 1-0). Equal on points with Berlin (six points) are the Straubing Tigers, who won the derby against ERC Ingolstadt 4: 1 (1: 0, 1: 0, 2: 1).

At the bottom of the table, the Augsburg Panthers and the Krefeld Penguins have no points. Augsburg also lost the second game of the season against the Iserlohn Roosters 1: 4 (0: 0, 0: 2, 1: 2). It was really bad once again for the Penguins, who have been crawling around the bottom of the table for years, but have to fear relegation again this season. In the Rhine derby against the Kölner Haie, the team of coach Clark Donatelli went down 0: 6 (0: 2, 0: 2, 0: 2).

Donatelli had announced towards the end of last season that he wanted to play for the championship in the new season. The reality is different: after three games, the penguins are still without a point and have already conceded 18 goals.

“I don’t even know what to say – except that it was bad,” said Krefeld’s defender Dominik Tiffels at MagentaSport. “We all know the first three games weren’t good and everyone in the dressing room also knows it’s five to twelve.”
