Adler Win in Iserlohn 4:3 Following Shoot-Out
After a hard fought 65 minutes on Friday, the game between the Adler and the Roosters in Iserlohn had to be decided in a shoot-out. The Adler won thanks to a goal from Yanick Lehoux and the stability of Felix Brueckmann in goal. Mirko-Hoefflin, Marc El-Sayed and Florian Kettemer all scored for the Adler in regulation.
Due to an early penalty against Simon Gamache it took the Adler a little time to find their stride in Iserlohn. The penalty-kill was successful though preventing an early deficit for the Adler. Once at equal strength it did not take long for the Adler to find their way into the game but once again they were knocked out off of their game by a penalty. Niki Goc went to the box and this time around Iserlohn’s power-play was a tic more dangerous. During the second half of the two minute minor against Goc the Adler were able to play a fast counter and Mirko Hoefflin sank the puck ice cold into the Rooster net, 0:1 (10 minute, short-handed). Four minutes later Marc El-Sayed increased the Adler lead, 0:2 (14 minute). Iserlohn was not ready to give up and were able to created a few good chances on goal before the end of the first but they were stopped by Felix Brueckmann in goal for the Adler.
The Roosters had a good start in the Second Period and were able to create multiple chances on goal as they kept pressure on the Adler defense. Tyson Mulock scored for the Roosters early in the period, 1:2 (24 minute). Just over a minute later with both Rheault and Sifers in the box, Mike York tied the game, 2:2 (25 minute, two-man-advantage). The two quick goals by the Roosters did not impress the Adler and they quickly regained the upper hand on the ice and once again took the lead on a goal from Florian Kettemer, 2:3 (35 minute).
A hard fought Third Period followed. The Adler had the game under control while at equal strength but Iserlohn had too many chances on the power-play. With less than two minutes left in regulation and immediately following one of the Roosters multiple man-advantage situations, Robert Raymond once again tied the game, 3:3 (59 minute). Despite Iserlohn having a man in the box for the last minute of regulation, Mannheim was unable to regain the lead and the game moved into sudden death over time, tied at three apiece.
Following a scoreless over time the game went into a shoot-out. Yanick Lehoux scored the game winner for Mannheim, 3:4 (penalty shot), while Felix Brueckmann held all shots on goal.
Mannheim returns home to the SAP Arena on Sunday, 24 November to host the Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers. The puck is scheduled to drop at 14:30.

Despite Jamie Sifers going to the box with a two minute minor in the 57 minute and the Panther pulling Ehelechner in the 60 minute for a sixth attacker Augsburg was unable to tie the game giving Mannheim a 2:1 victory at the final horn.
