Chad Kolarik Shoots Adler into First Place

Prior to the match against Wolfsburg on Sunday, the 12,583 fans in the SAP arena honored Ronny Arendt for playing in his 900 DEL game. The game saw the Adler down 1:3 at the end of the First but Thanks in a large part to Chad Kolarik’s hattrick they were able to pull out a 4:3 come from behind victory and take over the Number One Spot in the DEL Rankings. David Wolf scored the other Adler goal. Brent Aubin, Mark Voakes, and Tyson Mulock were the goal scorers for the Grizzlys.

The Adler had a rough First Period. First Brent Aubin scored on the power-play to give Wolfsburg an early lead, 0:1 (4 minute, man-advantage). David Wolf tied the score a couple of minutes later, 1:1 (6 minute). The tie was not to last long as Wolfsburg went quickly back on the power-play and Mark Voakes restored the Grizzlys lead, 1:2 (8 minute, man-advantage). With just over half of the Period played Tyson Mulock scored an even strength goal to build on Wolfsburg’s lead, 1:3 (12 minute). The Grizzlys held their two point lead into the first break.

The Adler played a more aggressive Second Period and were able to tie the game Thanks to two goals from Chad Kolarik. The goals were around the midway point of the Period and were scored with a little over a minute between them, 2:3 (29 minute) and 3:3 (30 minute).

Both teams created good chances on goal in the Third but it was once again Chad Kolarik that scored to put the Adler into the lead, 4:3 (50 minute). The last part of the Third was suspenseful as the Adler found themselves in the box with two, two-minute minors in the last five minutes of play and the Grizzlys had one player in the box during the last two minutes of play. Wolfsburg pulled Goalie Felix Brueckmann for an extra attacker with just over a minute left in regulation but the Adler were able to hold their lead until the final horn. The ‘Top Performers” of the game were Chad Kolarik (Mannheim) with three goals and four points, Robert Hisey (Wolfsburg) with two assists, and Mark Voakes (Wolfsburg) with seven shots on goal.

The Adler remain at home in the SAP Arena on Wednesday, 22 February when they will host their arch rivals the Schwenningen Wild Wings. The puck is scheduled to drop at 19:30.
