Munich, Germany - Scoring efficiency once again turned out a big problem as the Munich Barons got thrashed 0-5 by the Nuremberg Ice Tigers Sunday. Despite outshooting the hosts 29-25, the Barons couldn’t pull off another amazing comeback as in Friday’s 4-3 win over Essen.

"Fought hard": Defenseman Christoph Schubert

Sunday’s loss was the highest in Barons franchise history and already the second rout of the season after a 1-6 loss at the Berlin Eisbären two weeks ago.

With 6,024 in attendance at the Arena Nürnberg, the Ice Tigers took the lead at 13:00 when Jacek Plachta found Vitalij Aab on the powerplay, who one-timed the puck past Barons netminder Boris Rousson.

Trailing 1-0, the Barons got stunned by back-to-back scores early in the second. Only 64 seconds into period two, Jacek Plachta scored on a slapshot from the left slot. Less than a minute later, Martin Jiranek sent David Sulkovsky on an odd-man rush. He didn’t hesitate a second and wristed the puck in from the right faceoff circle.

The Barons seemed willing to work their way back into the game, but former Houston Aero Frederic Chabot shut them down. Luciano Borsato’s powerplay goal at 32:02 put the game out of reach at 4-0.

"We fought hard to turn the game around in the final twenty minutes,” young defenseman Christoph Schubert stated. “But you cannot always catch as many lucky breaks as we did on Friday.“

Guy Lehoux capped the scoring at 5-0 midway through the final period.

Nuremberg Icetigers - München Barons 5-0 (1-0, 3-0, 1-0)
Goals: 1-0 (13:00) Vitalij Aab (Chris Luongo, Jacek Plachta - 5:4), 2-0 (21:04) Jacek Plachta (Bruno Zarrillo, Jason Miller), 3-0 (21:54) David Sulkovsky (Martin Jiranek), 4-0 (32:02) Luciano Borsato (Jan Nemecek -5:4), 5:0 (50:04) Guy Lehoux (Bruno Zarrillo, Jacek Plachta).
