The Eisbären Berlin are again hoping for a better position in the table of the German Ice Hockey League (DEL). "I think that shows that there is still a lot in the team," said Leonhard Pföderl in view of the successful comeback in the 4:3 after a penalty shoot-out against Adler Mannheim on Sunday afternoon. The national player is convinced that the Eisbären Berlin are better than their 13th place in the DEL table says.
After overtime remained goalless, a professional who most recently had to sit in the stands as an extra import player played a key role in the victory in the penalty shootout: 20-year-old goalie Juho Markkanen, who this time was preferred to Tobias Ancicka, thwarted everyone three attempts by Mannheim before Marcel Noebels scored the winning goal for the polar bears. After his fifth league game, the young Finn was pleased to receive special praise from coach Serge Aubin: "Juho did a good job in goal and made the crucial saves in the shootout," said the Canadian.
