it is a roller-coaster ride, the season of the Lions. Currently in the Vicinity rush over to the section where it is steep downhill, it is always faster, where all the only. But it will go up again? This question also Simon Bodenmann, anyway he asked this and that, a thousand things – too many thoughts all the time. A head-man, he says he's always been, and will not help in the ice hockey rarely, and not when it is running. As now the master.
Recently, at 0:3 in the train, told the floor man, had he caught, as he asked during a Topchance what he was doing actually. It's a 2-on-1 counter attack, he is with the Puck, Pius Suter in the middle, in the end it was neither Pass nor shot, "because I waited, waited, waited, the Pass play, while I said to myself: shoot the fucking Puck!" Precisely what had been spoken in the Training, again and again, have also called for the Coach's shots. "And then so what. Because you think: man, that was bad ..."
bar fight symptoms
Sounds difficult to understand? Maybe. But the floor man and the ZSC, not a Team just experience, none has higher claims. Negative pressure, the fear of error, the uncertainty, the Questioning. Welcome to bar fight! Where the hands of the technicians, trembling suddenly, the accusations of disgruntled supporters are always in the room (refusal to work! Indifference!). And the question is: How could it come so far?
no, indifferent to the Deep soil is not a man's. The plight with the last four defeats, playful head start on rank 9, with all the deal. More than he bargained for. "Because at the best, that's all you go by are you thinking about it all the time," says the 30-Year-old. The successful hardly, the maximum joint moments with the girlfriend, because the other interests than hockey.
And also a look back helps. Floor man experienced a similar season, when he moved to 2015 from Kloten to Bern: a tumbling favorite, bar fight, a coach dismissal that seemed to avail nothing. With Oh and noise of the SCB is saved into the Playoff and was as the Eighth master. "There are a lot of Parallels," says the veteran. "The long-term injured." And not to forget: the floor man himself. And his slow start.
Now he had the confirmation: "I'm not coming to new places and can say: Here I am! I need acclimation time." His Start in Zurich was irritating. There are only goals and Assists, which are expected from a striker of his caliber. In 10 of the first 11 games of the bottom man does not stand in any Plustor in the case of a numerical tie, on the ice ... That was just bad luck, the game ran past him, he was frustrated: "I had the feeling, I give everything, but had no impact on the game."
Personal upward trend
The current ZSC-crisis, the lute peat, and the fact that the bottom man is not met in the last seven Games, puts it all in the Background: But now the ground is man the most efficient of Zurich striker, and certainly the best all-rounder in the Team. 20 Skorerpunkte in the last 21 games. That is, relative to the ice age, no other ZSC-tribe of force more common in power play goals and at the same time less frequently in the case against gates in all situations on the ice as a ground man, the other.
That sounds good, that's good. But the ground's mood lifts, the frustration remained, because the Miss of the Playoffs looming. It takes this Moment, in which there is a "click". At the time, with Bern gave it to him, he was just in the hall of the stadium: "A stolen victory in the penalty shootout," recalls ground man. Only, it was game 1 in the Playoff so far, the Lions are still a long way, all you need now is victories. Best today in Biel. (Tages-Anzeiger.ch/Newsnet)
