Munich, Germany - Just two days after giving up first place for the first time in almost a month, the Berlin Eisbären reclaimed the DEL lead Sunday night. On gameday 17, Steve Walker and Yvon Corriveau each scored a couple of goals as the Eisbären downed the ailing Kassel Huskies. Berlin took advantage of Mannheim’s road loss in Düsseldorf. Elsewhere, the thriving Iserlohn Roosters ended the eight-game win streak of the third-place Kölner Haie.

Set up Iserlohn’s comeback win with a late powerplay tally: Chris Bartolone
Leading DEL Scorers
(as of Feb 19, 2005)

Berlin now has 40 points, the Mannheim Adler are second with 38. The Kölner Haie (35) trail first place by five points. Düsseldorf is fourth with 32 points.

The Eisbären scored three powerplay goals in their 4-2 (2-0, 0-0, 2-2) victory over the Kassel Huskies. Walker put the game out of reach with his second tally of the night early in the third, giving Berlin a 3-0 lead. Mikael Wahlberg got Kassel on the scoreboard on the man advantage midway through the final period. But just three minutes later, Corriveau re-installed the commanding three-goal lead with his second powerplay goal of the night. Berlin had to play without injured defensemen John Gruden (bruised pelvis) and Ricard Persson. Persson had surgery to remove his appendix and could miss up to four weeks.

In Düsseldorf, the Mannheim Adler seemed en route to their eight straight win after scores from German forwards Stefan Ustorf and Marcel Goc. But trailing 2-0 early in the second period, the Düsseldorfer EG Metro Stars started a rally and tallied three unanswered goals to upset the Adler 3-2 (0-1, 2-1, 1-0). Metro Stars defenseman Jakub Ficenec came up with the game-winner on a spectacular solo effort late in the game. With two and a half minutes left in the game, Ficenec took the puck coast-to-coast and knocked it past Adler netminder Dimitri Pätzold for the win.

Iserlohn stops Cologne

With only 2:25 to go in regulation, Roosters defender Chris Bartolone rifled a point shot past Haie goalie Chris Rogles on the two-man advantage to tie the contest between Iserlohn and the Kölner Haie at two apiece, forcing a shootout decision. After six rounds of penalty shots, Colin Beardsmore converted the winning attempt to give the Roosters a 3-2 (0-1, 1-0, 1-1, 1-0) win and end Cologne’s eight-game win streak. Iserlohn (27 points) improved to fifth place in the standings.

Shootout decisions in Schwenningen and Krefeld

The Hannover Scorpions capped a perfect weekend with a 5-2 (0-0, 1-1, 4-1) win over the slumping Augsburg Panthers, who recorded their seventh straight loss. In Schwenningen, Vadym Slivchenko converted the decisive attempt in the OT penalty shootout as the Wild Wings downed the visiting Frankfurt Lions 2-1 (0-0, 1-1, 0-0, 1-0).

The Krefeld Pinguine fell just 59 seconds short of capping their first perfect, six-point weekend of the season. Nuremberg’s Guy Lehoux scored a late goal to send the game into a shootout decision. Young defenseman Christian Ehrhoff converted the winning attempt and made sure at least two of the three points stayed in Krefeld as the Pinguine beat the Ice Tigers 3-2 (1-0, 0-1, 1-1, 1-0).
