Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg vs. Adler Mannheim 4:3 (1:2, 2:0, 1:1)
Adler Lose Game 6 in Wolfsburg Eliminated From Playoffs
Despite a 2:1 lead after 20 minutes of play and the support of 700 fans that traveled with them, Mannheim was unable to win game six and force a game seven. The Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg won 4:3 (1:2, 2:0, 1:1) and eliminated the Adler from further playoff contention. Wolfsburg will meet the Cologne Haie on Wednesday in the semifinals.
The Adler started the game in Wolfsburg without Shawn Belle, Marc El-Sayed, and Mirko Hoefflin. Foster remained in the lineup for Belle and Dominik Bittner played for Marc El-Sayed. The game began much like game five with a high tempo and both teams trying to draw first blood. Wolfsburg was able to score first on a power-play goal from Greg Moore, 1:0 (10 minute, man-advantage). The Adler did not let the Wolfsburg goal knock them off their game as Christoph Ullmann tied the score, 1:1 (16 minute) and Yanick Lehoux scored on the power-play as the horn sounded to end the First Period, 2:1 (20 minute, man-advantage).
Wolfsburg started the Second Period a little reserved and gave the Adler too much room, which resulted in Dshunussow, in goal for Wolfsburg, having a lot of work but the third Manheim goal would not fall. On the other end Wolfsburg came back as Polaczek tied the game, 2:2 (32 minute, man-advantage). After the tying goal the momentum swung to Wolfsburg and they were able to take the lead four minutes later on a shot from Mayer, 3:2 (36 minute).
The break did the Adler good as they game out for the Third Period energized and attempted to swing the game back in their favor. Mannheim once again tied the score on a Frank Mauer goal, 3:3 (46 minute) but they were unable to hold the score for long. Four minutes later Brocklehurst scored the game winner, 4:3 (49 minute). Mannheim continued to throw everything forward but the score remained 4:3 for the Grizzly Adams at the final horn.
