Leading DEL Scorers
(as of Feb 19, 2005)

Steve Walker led the way with two goals and an assist as the top-seeded Berlin Eisbären rallied back from a two-goal deficit to beat the eighth-seeded DEG Metro Stars 5-3 and take a 1-0 lead in their best-of-seven quarterfinal series. After a scoreless 20-minute overtime period, the second-seeded Nürnberg Ice Tigers edged out seventh-seeded ERC Ingolstadt 2-1 after shootout. The most lopsided game of the night took place in Hamburg where the third-seeded Freezers skated past the sixth-seeded Mannheim Adler 5-2 (2-0, 1-1, 2-1). Bobby House, Andy Schneider and Dave Tomlinson each had three points on the night. The Kölner Haie, who entered the playoffs as the fourth seed, took a 2-0 lead on second-period goals by Jeremy Adduono and Mirko Lüdemann and held on for a close 2-1 win over the fifth-seeded Frankfurt Lions.

After six rounds of shootout, Steve Larouche marked the game-winning goal to lift the second-seeded Nürnberg Ice Tigers to a 2-1 (1-0, 0-1, 0-0, 0-0, 1-0) home win over seventh-seeded ERC Ingolstadt. The 5,238 spectators at Arena Nürnberg saw a battle of two defensive-minded teams. Nuremberg took an early lead when Larouche scored on the power-play only 84 seconds into the tilt. Brad Burym knotted the score at one apiece, tucking home Mike Stevens’ feed from behind the net at 3:36 of the middle frame. Although the Tigers picked up the pace in the third period and the 20-minute overtime stanza, there was no further scoring.
