Munich, Germany - Peter Douris converted the winning penalty shot as the Munich Barons downed bottom-club Hanover Scorpions 2-1 after shootout on Sunday.
 

Game-winning penalty shot: "Pistol Pete" Douris
Leading DEL Scorers
(as of Feb 19, 2005)

Coming off an impressive 3-0 road win at Cologne, the Barons looked a little sluggish. They weren't able to capitalize on an early lead.

Thriving youngster Manuel Kofler drew first blood only six minutes in. But Scorpions defenseman Dominic Lavoie came up with a late equalizer on the powerplay that sent the game into overtime.

Krefeld still on top

While Munich (68 points) lost a point, league leaders Krefeld Pinguine (72) rebounded from its loss to Augsburg with a 3-1 win over Kassel. Friday's loss had snapped a ten-game win streak.

The third-place Barons remain surrounded by defending champion Mannheim Adler (70), who dominated the Berlin Eisbären on the road, 5-1, and the Nuremberg Ice Tigers (67), who blanked the Frankfurt Lions 4-0.

Kofler scores early lead

Kofler's score, his second of the season, was a rather curious goal. Douris sped down the left wing. Anticipating a pass, Kofler stopped in front of the net.

"I started to turn into the defenseman", Kofler explained. "That's when the puck hit me."

Off his skate's blade, the puck was deflected into the net. "But there was no kicking motion - a regular score."

Douris and Oliver seal win

After a late powerplay blast by Lavoie, the game had to be decided in a shootout contest.

Succesful conversions by David Oliver and Peter Douris secured Munich's win, while Igor Chibirev came up with Hanover's only goal.
