Munich, Germany - Munich has developed into a real nemesis for the Kölner Haie. Behind outstanding goaltending from former Haie-goalie Boris Rousson, the Barons blanked Cologne 3-0 - their fifth straight win and third straight shutout at the KölnArena.

The game resembled Munich's previous wins at Cologne. An early score from Peter Douris and excellent goaltending was seemingly all the Barons needed to frustrate the Haie. Boris Rousson did a perfect impersonation of the "Dominator" as the Barons were outshot 17:53.

"I'm always especially motivated at Cologne," said Rousson, who tended the Haie net before joining the Barons in 1999. "There's a terrific atmosphere in here. The early lead helped us, of course."

Munich got ahead only 77 seconds in. Set up by Andy Schneider, Peter Douris capped a short-handed counterattack by blasting the puck through Chris Rogles five-hole.

The hapless Rogles didn't look very fortunate on Munich's second score, either. Derek King hammered a shot past the screened netminder to make it 2-0 six minutes into the second.

Douris capped the scoring at 3-0 with an empty-netter.

"We're all pretty frustrated, but we don't wanna hang our heads and gotta look ahead," Haie head coach Lance Nethery remarked.

Young defenseman Christian Völk made his debut for the Barons. The 24-year-old was brought in from third-division club Erding Jets Thursday.
