Munich wants to set the course for the semi-finals
The games between the EHC Red Bull Munich and the Fischtown Penguins Bremerhaven have been surprisingly close so far. Who will win game four?
After the bankruptcy in the opening game of the DEL playoffs, the EHC Red Bull Munich last clinched two victories in a row against the Fischtown Penguins Bremerhaven.
With another success in game four on Wednesday (starting at 7.30 p.m. in the LIVETICKER), the top of the main round could set the course for the semi-finals ahead of schedule.
In their last meeting on Sunday, the Munich-based side scored four goals in the last period, 2-0 down to clinch a 5-2 victory: “We’re simply not good enough and are always one step too late. We are not concentrated enough”, Olympic hero Frank Mauer found clear words after the second third.
The Northern Lights from Bremerhaven want to continue the performance of the first 30 minutes in order to achieve 2:2 compensation in the series.
The Grizzlys Wolfsburg also want the same at their home game against the Eisbären Berlin (from 7.30 pm in the LIVETICKER).
With 8:1 the capitolers shot the Grizzlys out of the hall in game three and celebrated the highest playoff victory in their history. In general, the new duel between the two promises many goals. There were seven goals on average in the three games to date.
Game one went to Berlin with 4:1, game two won the Wolfsburg 5:2. This was followed by the clear home victory of the polar bears in their third match.
