On Sunday, Bayern picked up their Lederhosen. At 18 degrees and sunshine, the beer garden was a popular destination for many people from Munich who threw themselves in the appropriate garb. Even in the Olympic ice sports centre was announced in one or the other visitors of legroom. There, however, it was from the point of view of the Locals are pretty cool, in the fifth quarter-final duel between RB München and the polar bear, the Berlin 3:0 (1:0, 0:0, 2:0) by and condensed in the series "best of seven" on 2:3. The sixth game Friday, then again in the Arena at the Ostbahnhof. "I am very proud of the team, has today showed character," said coach Stéphane Richer.
The coach had put together his Storm formations. A recipe for that in hockey often is applied to improve the chemistry in the Team. Maybe that is why the polar bears had from the beginning, not like a team that has finished with this season already. Cheered on by their faithful and sang joyful Fans you played in the initial phase, as they would have been on Friday – it's at the 2:5-home defeat, but will not be able to apply. The people of Munich, however, a number of times, the Puck jumped up from the floor or over it; it seemed a bit like they would not take the supposedly last mission against the polar bears, with 100% in attack. "Today we were a bit slow, maybe because we were not mentally ready," said Munich coach Don Jackson
it Still gave chances for the home side, but the numbers game is in this quarter-final so far, the biggest weak point for Bayern. How to do it with a man more on the ice better, showed the polar bears. Jamie MacQueen overcame RB-Goalie Danny aus den Birken with a powerful shot under the crossbar. Now the Berlin final have smelled a rat had, after all, they were reminded in the previous year. At that time they had in the final game number five, also in the case of 1:3-Series is lagging behind in Munich to win.
The game this year was completely different. Eleven months ago Fans of spectacle-ice hockey have to offer, the Berlin won 6:5 after extra time. This time it was more of a sober lecture to the guests, which were toxic in their Forechecking, lots of shots blocked and courageously in the two fights throwing. Defensive coach Richer could be fully satisfied, especially as his Team were not to be carried away like a week ago on the same ground in 1:4 discipline faux pas. So it was after the first third of the 1:0 for the polar bears, which brought this guide over the second 20 minutes.
whistles against James Sheppard
In this section of the game, the Munich Fans under the 5870 spectators only once, really loud, Konrad Abeltshauser wounded in a duel with Berlin, James Sheppard and the ice will have been had. The action of Sheppard was rather unfortunate and not a Foul, the referee ahndeten it also with a penalty. The polar bears striker was nevertheless henceforth, the bogeyman, and had to listen to it from the stands, catcalls, and worse. "I'm trying to do my Job," he said after the game. Him hostile to the opposing viewers to the realities motivate also, he did not deny but.
as he returned the favor in the last third of it in his own way. A good ten minutes before the end of the curved Sheppard brought elegantly to the goal, the Puck somehow to Austin Ortega and the wurschtelte him to 2:0 on the line. 37 seconds later, the Berlin, and their Fans cheered again. Ortega met again, this time in form after a counter-attack. His two hits, he didn't want to make out later. Instead, he said only: "It's nice when we win. Then the whole team is happy.“More about

Twice to the polar bears in this series yet, think of the season so it might take a lot longer than a few days ago even thought of yet. New hope, in any case, in the previous year, the polar bears forced only game six and then game seven. "Maybe the last series of plays under aware of a role, but I think otherwise, not much about it," said Sheppard. Need to think about now anyway, the Munich. Break to go to the beer garden, not to have them in the next week anyway.
