He no longer shoots, only goals

The single Mini-shock it gave to the end of the game. Lino Martschini was not chosen as the best EVZ player, though he had been to this wonderful Zug hockey night. This honor remained, Johann Morant, the man is reserved, usually, for Rough. He had scored four seconds before the end of the Central portion, the first Playoff goal of his professional career.

Martschini was happy with the defender. Even without the award, he knew that he had an excellent day's work behind: He scored the 1:0, had the next two goals, an Assist record, and also in the case of goals 4 and 5 on the ice. In Playoff mode, he liked his performance at the 5:0 against Lausanne cannot be overestimated: "It is only the victory that counts, and I have to my like all the others to help."

To Zug Wins Martschini since few years, and especially to the spectacle in the Bossard-Arena: With his technique, game intelligence and speed of 167 centimeters small whirlwind on a good night is the admission money alone value. In qualifying a total of 226 Skorerpunkte get him in the last five years. In the Playoff, the 26-Year-old so far, however, is often a shadow of its former self. The statements were made quickly: too small, too light, not playoff-worthy, certainly not world Cup ready.

to Be cut is as good as never

Now it looks different: Martschini in the Playoff Skorerliste space 3. After 7 Games he has 10 points, only team-mate Roe and Lausanne Vermin. His average of 1.43 points. Spectacle it offers more than enough, and quickly he is not only with legs but also with the head. He showed with two goals on Saturday: The 1:0 he scored, because he reacted lightning fast when he saw that Junland left the ice at the wrong time of the exchange; prior to the 3:0 he launched the heading out the Suri with a laser pass from his own Zone.

applause but there were also, as Martschini of two louse men did not shake off, and as a punishment provoked or when he blocked in the own Zone a shot. There are two scenes that are almost more important for the "new" Lino Martschini. Those who do not do defensive work, not only because it is one of the basic requirements of a professional eishockeyaners, but because it makes him Fun. And because he knows that he only comes international more. "It was up to me to make this step. I just tried to be a complete player. And if I have first, the defensive mentality, I am then faster on the Puck," he says, and Yes, this other way of playing make Fun "The guys are just as happy, if I block a shot, or with the stick in the right place am, as if I score a goal."

The Norwegian coach Dan Tangnes, after train came in with the philosophy, to make every player, regardless of age and level of development better, have supported him: "He always stood behind me and has shown me, shown and even shown what I must do." Martschini is a positive testimony: "I have again and again by the hanger, and I'm still not as consistent as I would like to, but I have made progress."

"Lino is now reveals a man"

Tangnes what he has with Martschini especially worked: "We have talked a lot about what it takes for a young Talent to be a Leader. To shoot the goals, it is not enough, it needs a Plan B, and one can always trust, if he is on the ice." Martschini was a very good student, says Tangnes: "He assumes a lot more responsibility, and if he hits, he plays hard." And with a Laugh, he concludes: "Lino is a man now."

Also coach Patrick Fischer observed Martschini. And in view of its development, as well as the question mark behind the world Cup-the availability of a number of strong NHL-wings, the native of Lucerne, is a hot candidate for the tournament in may in Bratislava. Nico Hischier've asked him recently, so the coach told last week at a Talk in the train, to get a winger to his side, he could also shoot the goals. "Maybe Lino Martschini is a candidate," said the fisherman. Well possible, that he did not like with this statement, only the hosts.
