Three-quarters of the season in the German hockey League (DEL) are over and the polar bears are in free fall. On Sunday afternoon, the Berlin-based documents in the case of the grizzly Wolfsburg in front of 3676 viewers with 2:4 (0:0, 0:2, 2:2). It was the fourth defeat in a row for the Team of Stéphane Richer, its dual function as a Trainer and sport Director ever larger question mark was raised.
"We are just in a difficult Phase, from the we only come through hard work," said André Rankel after the game, in the case of Magenta sports. The captain had recently fed before the end, with his goal to 2:3 again, the hope is that the polar bears can maybe take something to take something home with you. But in the end, the game was on Sunday afternoon and then again just as sobering, like many others before.
After a decent first third, in which the Berlin afflict the unsettled house of lords again and again in their Zone well, went to the Grizzlies in the second section of the game thanks to goals from Daniel Sparre and Sebastian Furchner 2:0 in leadership. In a weak hockey game, it is now the polar bears, which did not succeed much. The Absence of top scorer James Sheppard and another regular player in this Phase is clearly noticeable.
the Grizzlies, who had recently lost six times in series, in the third period, again by Sparre even the 3:0 nachlegten, seemed to have decided the game. But the Berlin came through a Stochertor by Sean Backman to 1:3, and suddenly it is once again interesting. Why the polar bears missed it on Sunday, once again, to operate over 60 minutes of constant pressure, is one of the great mysteries, that appears to be for weeks now, unsolvable.More about

Rankels hit about two minutes from the end came too late, even if there were still chances to make it 3:3. Sebastian Furchner made with his shot into the empty goal at the 4:2 finally, everything is clear for the wolf Burger, which are now no longer Last in the DEL. The season for the Grizzlies is still running, the Play-off places are too far away. For the polar bears of hope, not because of their performance, but because it is the mode in the League makes possible, in contrast, is still. (Tsp)
