Munich, Germany - Manuel Kofler scored twice as the Munich Barons skated past the Frankfurt Lions 6-1 on Saturday. Munich’s highest road victory of the season extended the Barons’ current win streak to six games – their longest of the season.

Two goals: German winger Manuel Kofler

(as of Feb 19, 2005)

Barons defender Hans Lodin opened up the scoring 2:49 into the game when his shot trickled past well-screened Lions netminder Pokey Reddick. A powerplay blast from Greg Johnston gave Munich a 2-0 lead heading into the first intermission.

A powerplay goal by Lions forward Rick Girard, who was Munich’s top scorer last season, cut the lead in half early in the second.

But it didn’t take the Barons long to respond. Only 90 seconds later, Derek King reinstalled Munich’s two-goal lead when he netted his 13th of the season with the man advantage.

Floodgates open

The goal opened the floodgates and the Barons added three more within the following seven minutes to put the game away.

After Derek Plante’s 18th tally of the season, German winger Manuel Kofler struck twice within a span of only 13 seconds to cap the scoring at 6-1.

Hapless Lions goalie Reddick was pulled after Kofler’s first score. But his backup Leonardo Conti obviously picked it up right where Reddick had left, getting beaten on the first shot on net.

Plante facing suspension

Barons Center Derek Plante is facing a possible suspension. With a minor penalty expiring, Plante wasn’t let out of the penalty box. He started slashing against the boards to make the referees aware of the situation, allegedly hurting Frankfurt’s public address announcer. The league has yet to comment on the incident.
