It has often been argued whether, from the polar bears’ point of view, it was so lucky to let Daniel Fischbuch go. In any case, the striker never really had a chance in Berlin, while in his later spell, first in Nuremberg and now in Düsseldorf, he often increased the pressure, especially when it came to his former employer. In any case, on Sunday he ruined the afternoon for his former teammates in front of a good 6,000 spectators at the Düsseldorf Dome.
The Polar Bears controlled the game for a long time, winning 2-0 with three and a half minutes to go, then Daniel Fischbuch came along and scored twice. In the end, the Berliners lost two more points, because DEG won the penalty shootout after a goal from – Fischbuch, who else? The 2: 3 (1: 0, 1: 0, 2: 0 / 0: 1) in Düsseldorf was an unnecessary defeat for the Berliners, but also one that was very close to the end for the sovereign leaders of German ice hockey. League the main round can overcome. However, the stupid bankruptcy was in the stomach of the polar bears. Kevin Clark, who scored the second goal in the second period, said after the end: “We have to watch the game very carefully again. That shouldn’t happen to us in the playoffs.”
Simon Després put Eisbären ahead in the first third, and they started again with Tobias Ancicka in goal instead of Mathias Niederberger. Ancicka didn’t seem so happy when he conceded the second goal: he couldn’t do anything when Fischbuch took the deciding penalty.
