Straubing Tigers won the nerve battle in the German Ice Hockey League (DEL) against Kollner Heine 5-4.
Niederbayern still had a chance to play a playoff game in their hands. With the victory in Cologne, the Tigers outmaneuvered the wild Schoeninger wings once again and are now fourth in the Del Sud group. Straubing and Schwenningen are linked, but Lower Bavaria has the best scorecard. In Cologne, the Tigers trailed by a 3: 4 ratio after a 2: 1 lead past the first trimester in the final division. Then coach Tom Bockell’s side turned the game over again. In the final leg, Straubing had to fear success again with two fewer men (penalty time and blank net) on the ice.
The match against Iserlon will likely not be compensated
In the main round of DEL, the Tigers now have two more matches on the agenda. Next weekend they will face Wolfsburg Grizzlies twice. Friday at home and Sunday in Lower Saxony. The match against Iserlohn Roosters will likely not be rescheduled, as it has been canceled twice due to a suspected case of Corona in Sauerlanders.
