The EHC Munich loses its first game of the year in the last minute. The winning streak of the superior DEL table leader breaks after six successes – even though the team in Berlin turns a 1: 3 into a 3: 3 in between.
Unsuccessful start to the year for the EHC Red Bull Munich: The sovereign league leader of the German Ice Hockey League made up two goals behind at the Eisbären Berlin, but lost 3: 4 due to a goal in the last minute. “We know that Berlin is having a great run again,” said EHC striker Maximilian Kastner before the game. “But we can stand up to them.” The Munich failed. In five minutes, polar bear striker James Sheppard prevailed against Keith Aulie and Mark Voakes and overcame returnee Kevin Reich with a low shot through the legs. Two minutes later, he removed Blake Parlett’s target from the center line and again successfully single-handedly shot through the goalkeeper’s legs.
The Munich team had the chance to reduce the gap in the starting third in two overpowering games, but failed several times due to Berlin’s new goalkeeper Justin Pogge, who had only trained with his new teammates on Thursday. In the middle third, the Munich team had 35 seconds to score the 1: 2 – Jason Jaffray was successful on margin. When the EHC pushed for equalization, Pierre-Cedric Labrie completed another solo attempt to make it 3-1 in Berlin (34th). Patrick Hager outnumbered Munich again on goal (38.), Jaffray equalized in the final third (45.). But 30 seconds before the end, Berlin’s Leo Pföderl sealed the first Munich defeat after six wins in a row with a deflected shot.
