The polar bears also revealed their current strong form in the home game against the Straubing Tigers. With the 4:1 (2:0, 1:0, 1:1) the Berliners won their fifth game in a row. Like last time against the Grizzlys Wolfsburg, Leo Pföderl stood out, this time he even scored three times in front of 9724 spectators.
Without Yannick Veilleux, who was suspended due to a fistfight in the last game, and Bennet Roßmy, who complained of being unwell, the Eisbären came out of the dressing room with a lot of pressure and put Bayern under massive pressure. In the tenth minute, Pföderl scored for the hosts for the first time, only three minutes he increased in the first power play for Berlin. In both cases, Marcel Noebels and Kevin Clark prepared.
The Eisbären didn’t let up in the middle section either, Pföderl made the hat-trick perfect (26′). In the final section, Marco Nowak even increased the lead to 4-0 (46th). The only blemish on an otherwise successful evening was the late goal by Travis St. Denis (54th), who scored his fifth goal of the season against the polar bears. Berlin’s keeper Juho Markkanen, who once again started between the posts, missed his second shutout. (tsp)
