Munich, Germany - Mike Kennedy, a healthy scratch in the waning days of the Bill Stewart regime, looked like his old self again in the second game of new Mannheim Adler head coach Helmut de Raaf. "The President" notched a pair of goals to lift the Eagles to a road win over the Hamburg Freezers in the only game in the DEL (Deutsche Eishockey Liga) Tuesday.

Mannheim skated to a 3-1 (2-0, 1-1, 0-0) win, ending Hamburgís seven-game winning streak at ColorLine Arena.

The Adler got on the scoreboard when Christoph Ullmann found himself alone in front of Freezers netminder Boris Rousson and beat him with a low shot on a delayed penalty call midway through the opening frame. Kennedy doubled the Adler lead to 2-0 with under four minutes to go in the first, going top-shelf after a nice feed by defenseman Sascha Goc.

Hamburg could not get much penetration on Richard Shulmistraís net. The Freezers had their best opportunities on the man advantage. Dan Lambertís power-play tally cut the lead in half at 14:36 of the second. Mannheim regained a two-goal lead when a shot from Steve Junker bounced off Roussonís chest and Kennedy picked up the rebound and beat his old Munich Barons buddy for the second time to make it 3-1 with 2:52 left in the middle frame.

The Adler protected the lead with solid defensive play and gave new head coach Helmut de Raaf his first win as a DEL head coach.
