After crime thriller: grizzlies reach playoffs
The Grizzlys Wolfsburg defeat Schwenninger Wild in the second game of the pre-playoffs and reach the quarter-finals. The Wild Wings miss their dream.
The Grizzlys Wolfsburg have made it into the DEL playoffs.
They defeated the Schwenninger Wild Wings 3:2 in the second pre-playoff game away from home and thus secured their ticket for the field of the last eight.
They owe this triumph in particular to the strong opening phase, which gave them a quick 2-0 lead by Sebastian Furchner and Stephen Dixon.
The first goal was conspicuous, which was given only after a long consultation in the course of the video proof.
In the second period Brent Aubin even scored 3-0 in the second period – and once again the video proof had to decide – and everything looked like a clear victory for Wolfsburg. But the Wild Wings didn’t give up and came again.
Damien Fleury met for 1-3 and Will Acton for 2-3. There remained an overall third third, but the Wild Wings could not use it. The dream of the playoffs burst.
