Munich, Germany - Cameron Mann tallied three assists and Craig Ferguson added a goal and a helper as ERC Ingolstadt moved out of last place in the Deutsche Eishockey-Liga (DEL) with a home win over the Iserlohn Roosters Tuesday night.
 

Three-point night: Ingolstadt’s Cameron Mann
Leading DEL Scorers
(as of Feb 19, 2005)

With 2,033 in attendance at Saturn Arena, Ingolstadt scored four unanswered goals to overcome an early 1-0 deficit and beat Iserlohn 4-1 (0-1, 3-0, 1-0). ERC Ingolstadt (3-8) recorded just its third win of the season, two of those coming against the Roosters (4-10).

Ingolstadt is now one point ahead of the last-place Freiburg Wölfe (3-9) and has a game in hand over the expansion team.

Kennedy save – for now

The victory might have saved coach Ron Kennedy’s job – at least for now. The 50-year-old Saskatchewan native has been under heavy criticism for his underachieving squad of high-priced veterans.

Iserlohn dominated the first twenty minutes and took a 1-0 lead when Chris Bartolone scored with 3:02 left in the opening period. The momentum swung after Craig Ferguson’s equalizer less than three minutes into the middle frame. Defenseman Jakub Ficenec doubled Ingolstadt’s lead on a two-man advantage halfway through the second. He skated around the net and ripped a shot past Rooster’s goalie Michael Fountain for the eventual game-winner with 8:45 to go in the period. Set up nicely by Mann and Ferguson, Mike Stevens extended Ingolstadt’s lead to 3-1 less than three minutes before the second intermission. An empty-net goal by defenseman Ken Sutton capped the scoring at 4-1 2:48 from the final horn.
