Dennis Seidenberg Has Arrived In Mannheim
After last week’s delay Dennis Seidenberg has finally arrived in Mannheim. Over the next couple of days, he will have to complete all of the medical checks and the rest of the formalities, so his first team practice will be on Thursday. He will also be flying to Hamburg with the team, but if he gets any ice time is questionable. It is more likely that he will first play on Sunday afternoon at home against Düsseldorf.
Dennis Seidenberg will be in the SAP Arena tonight for the game against Iserlohn and will give an interview for Arena-TV during the first break.
EHC Red Bull Munich vs. Adler Mannheim 2:4 (1:3, 1:1, 0:0)
The Adler brought three points back to Mannheim with a 4:2 win in Munich (3:1, 1:1, 0:0). The Adler laid the foundation for the win in the first ten minutes of play. Matthias Plachta, Mike Glumac, and Marcus Kink contributed to the 3:0 lead in the first nine minutes of play, a lead they were to keep the entire game. Frank Mauer scored the fourth Adler goal.
There were 2,752 fans viewing the game in Munich as the Adler achieved a super start against the EHC Red Bull. With less than three minutes played Dominik Bittner fired one from the blue line that Matthias Plachta deflected with his stick into the net, completely unstoppable for Munich’s Goalie Jochen Reimer. This early goal gave Mannheim the needed confidence to play offensively. In the 9 minute Munich’s Toni Ritter was sent to the box for tripping and 13 seconds later Mike Glumac scored the 2:0 on a pass from Marcel Goc. One could feel the lack of confidence coming from the Red Bull, who have yet to win a game in this young season. So it was no surprise when the 3:0 fell. It was Marcus Kink that picked up the puck from Munich in the neutral zone and on a solo counter scored a short-hander for Mannheim. Only nine minutes of game time had elapsed. Munich had not given up and were able to fight their way back into the game and started to create chances of their own but Felix Brueckmann was able to hold them off. Brueckmann was helpless in the 17 minute as the Adler with a man-advantage situation were deep in their offensive zone, when Wichert scored on a Munich breakaway, three minutes before the first break.
The goal just before the end of the first period gave Munich the needed energy to come out strong in the second period. Martin Hinterstocker brought the Red Bull within one in the 28 minute and brought a little confusion into the Adler ranks. Mannheim quickly regained their game and Frank Mauer regained the two goal lead for the Adler with a power-play goal three minutes later.
The Adler played an extremely disciplined third period that saw few chances for the EHC Red Bull and what chances they did have were stopped cold by Adler Goalie Felix Brueckmann. Munich pulled their keeper for a sixth attacker in the last minute of play but at the final horn the scorer remained 4:2 in favor of the Adler.
