EHLS Premiere – Supporting is injured
The German team caught a measure against France: the outnumbered of Leo Pföderl served Daniel Fischbuch scored completely freely from a short distance to 1-0, just 124 seconds were played. Shortly thereafter, Stefan Loibl missed the second goal with an outnumbered outnumbered that France’s keeper Sebastian Ylönen (4th).
Despite the early deficit, the French stopped and kept running their checks. So also in the 14th minute, in which Tim Stützle injured himself on a check on the knee, slowly drove from the ice towards the cabin and a frustration foul made. Alexandre Texier – the only NHL professional France at the World Cup – used the following power play to 1: 1 (15th).
The fact that Germany went into the first third break with a lead was due to Alexander Ehl, who fell a shot from Dominik Bittner in the 18th minute past Ylönen into the goal. It was the first World Cup goal for the striker of Düsseldorfer eG.
Gallet meets, Deb team loses thread
While Stützle remained in the cabin at the start of the second third, Marc Michaelis narrowly missed the 3-1 because Ylönen somehow stopped the farmer’s trick of the German Center with the schooner (22nd). The German team was now much more game -determined than in the first third. But the French marked the goal in a straightforward relief attack: Hugo Gallet falsified a hard pass from Charles Bertrand past Niederberger to 2: 2 (32nd).
After the goal, the DEB team lost the thread a little, a power play before the end of the second third only brought a break chance for the French.
Pföderl refines Noebels’ pass
In the final section, the German team started again – and took the lead for the third time thanks to a remarkable hit. Marcel Noebels served Pföderl with a flip pass and the latter executed in a goalkeeper manner to 3: 2 (46th). As against the Slovaks, the German selection then defended the narrow lead over time.
“At such a tournament, games are decided with a goal, so it is good that we could show early that we can do that,” said Noebels after the game at “Sport1”. He added a wink to the winning goal in co -production with his Berlin storm colleague Pföderl: “He always takes a little longer to go to the goal, so I had to delay a little while passing.”
The DEB team now has two days without play before going on Thursday (3:20 p.m.) against Denmark and Friday (3:20 p.m.) against Italy with two games within a good 24 hours.
