Ice hockey, DEL: Iserlohn with “Big Point” in the relegation battle

As of: February 22, 2024 10:18 p.m

The Iserlohn Roosters have landed a valuable victory in the relegation battle of the German Ice Hockey League (DEL).

The Sauerlanders beat the third-placed Straubing Tigers 4:3 (1:0, 2:0, 0:3, 0:0, 1:0) after a penalty shootout on Thursday (February 22, 2024) and are now five points ahead of bottom team Augsburg. However, the Panthers have played two fewer games.

48th matchday arrow right

In their 48th of 52 main round games, Michael Dal Colle (12th), Taro Jentzsch (23rd) and Balazs Sebök (33rd) brought the Roosters up 3-0. But Michael Clarke (45th), Justin Scott (53rd) and Justin Braun (60th) forced extra time in the third period. Tyler Boland scored the Roosters’ extra point in the shootout.

Due to the defeat, the Tigers missed the chance to come one step closer to direct qualification for the play-off quarter-finals. Lower Bavaria definitely has a place in the pre-play-offs.

Polar bears celebrate victory

With the quarter-final ticket in their pocket, the Eisbären Berlin have consolidated the top spot in the German Ice Hockey League (DEL). The team from the capital won on Wednesday evening (February 21, 2024) at the Kölner Haien 3:2 (2:1, 1:0, 0:1) and is now at the top with 96 points.

The Fischtown Pinguins (92) are four points behind, but have played two fewer games. Berlin has already secured one of the first six places in the DEL since last weekend, so the Eisbären will not have to take the detour via the pre-playoffs.

Grizzlys outclass YOU

This has now become more likely for Cologne. After the defeat against Berlin, the Haie (73 points) remain seventh, and a direct competitor also won: The Grizzlys Wolfsburg (78) beat Düsseldorfer EG 9:4 (4:3, 4:0) in a catch-up game on matchday 45. 1, 1:0) and climbed to fifth place.

Chris Wilkie scored three times for Wolfsburg, Peter Mueller and Darren Archibald each contributed a brace to the clear victory. Düsseldorf (55), on the other hand, is no closer to the ranks for the pre-playoffs. In eleventh place, DEG is four points behind tenth place, which the Nuremberg Ice Tigers hold.
