Munich, Germany - Brad Purdie tallied two goals and a pair of assists as the Hamburg Freezers turned their return from a winless four-game road trip into a scoring fest.

Hamburg snaps six-game losing streak

Hamburg jumped out to a 4-0 lead and held on for a 6-2 (2-0, 2-2, 2-0) home victory over the second-place Frankfurt Lions. Dan Lambert and Andy Schneider each tallied two points for the Freezers, who ended a six-game losing streak.

Hamburg set the tone with two early goals from Brad Purdie and Dave Tomlinson (power-play). Dan Lambert (pp) and Jacek Plachta scored within a 76-second span at the beginning of the middle frame to put Hamburg up 4-0 just 2:33 into the second. Frankfurt rebounded after Marc Dillmann replaced starting netminder Ian Gordon. The Lions cut Hamburg’s lead in half on goals from Francois Bouchard and former Freezer David Sulkovsky. But the momentum shifted again when Mark Greig scored 3:17 into the final stanza, extending Hamburg’s lead to 5-2. A power-play goal from Purdie capped the scoring 1:14 before the final buzzer.

Oswald returns to Krefeld, hurts ex team with two short-handers

Former Penguin Günter Oswald notched a pair of short-handed goals as the streaking ERC Ingolstadt downed defending DEL champion Krefeld Pinguine on the road, 4-2 (1-1, 2-1, 1-0). Their fourth straight win moved Ingolstadt into the playoff ranks for the first time this season, they are now tied for 8th place with the DEG Metro Stars.

Oswald opened the scoring on a short-handed breakaway at the 13:42-mark of the opening period. A power-play blast from Justin Kurtz tied the game at one going into the first intermission. Ingolstadt regained control early in the middle frame when Cameron Mann rifled a point shot past Pinguine goalie Robert Müller. The ERC doubled its lead to 3-1 halfway through the period when Glen Goodall scored on a delayed penalty call. A late goal from Alexander Selivanov got Krefeld back into the game. The Pinguine kept pressing for the equalizer, but could not get the puck past Jimmy Waite again. Oswald quashed Krefeld’s comeback hopes nine seconds from the final horn, connecting on an empty-netter from his own zone.

Mannheim: Ullmann’s GWG beats former team

Christoph Ullmann, 20-year-old product of the Kölner Haie organisation, converted the game-winning penalty shot to lift the Mannheim Adler to a 2-1 (1-1, 0-0, 0-0, 1-0) road win over his former team. Mannheim, which recorded its third straight win, has won six of its last seven.

Tomas Martinec’s power-play goal put Mannheim on the scoreboard 4:31 into the contest. Jeremy Adduono scored the 1-1 equalizer with just over four minutes to go in the opening frame.

Both teams had good opportunities, including 5-on-3 power-play advantages at both ends of the ice, but there was no further scoring in regulation.

A frightening moment occurred halfway through the final stanza when a shot from Mannheim’s Sascha Goc hit Haie forward Jean-Yves Roy in the face. Roy needed stitches above his right eye but was able to return for the final minutes the game.
