a Few seconds before the game against the Augsburger Panther of Stéphane Richer was a little nervous. As for the camera, he cradled the sports Director of the eisbaren Berlin captured, who is now also coach of the most successful German football club, his torso back and forth. His blue Sweater with the very end, to realize why Richer was a good thing in addition to all the other officials in their dark suits. Maybe Richer, who replaced the hapless Clément Jodoin in this week as a Coach wanted to, with the choice of dress its players to send a Signal: Look, it has changed what! It helped nothing. 1:2 (0:2, 1:0, 0:0) lost the polar bears against Augsburg and the fifth home game in a row.
the squad had Changed under Richer, however. Mark Cundari returned, Danny Richmond remained outside. However, Cundari had to stay because of knee problems after the first third of the cabin. Florian Kettemer was due to a foot injury after a little over a half hour of playing time.
On the ice a little, what was not from a polar bear point of view, the worst news happened first. In the case of the 2:5 defeat against Nuremberg, which had cost Jodoin the Job, conceding the Berlin already in the first Minute of the first goal.
this Time, the polar bears survived 13 minutes without conceding a goal, then Louis-Marc Aubry took advantage of a first Time on the criminal bench and Augsburg, the majority of the game mercilessly. Matthew White put in a cross that Matthew Fraser, of the responded faster than Jonas Müller and the racket to the 0:1 had to hold out. Four minutes later, James Sheppard got a Two-minute penalty, again the table fourth punished the home team, this time Daniel Schmölz met. His rather unspectacular attempt from distance falsified Jens Baxman unfortunately into his own goal.
In an Interview after the first third of the polar bears-player Charlie Jahnke said: "We knew that Augsburg is in the Majority-well, that's why we wanted to stay out of the penalty box way. We have to beat them in five against five.“ 10.587 viewers wondered, meanwhile, how the Plan should look like. The offensive game of the polar bears was limping quite a bit, even the Shows in the intermissions offered more Inspiration.
In the second third, it was hardly any better. Many technical inaccuracies and misplaced passes dominated the game in Berlin, also on the Powerplay a little thought. Time and again the almost desperate-seeming distance shots remained at Augsburg in defense, legs or thugs hanging out. Only a Minute before the end of a generally weak third shorter Louis-Marc Aubry in 1:2 – and soon after almost the 2:2 would be him in the Fall to be successful. The Fans were hoping on the last third, in vain. The commitment is not agreed to, the accuracy but. At the end of Richer, had a disappointing Start as polar bears Coach.More about
