Ice-Hockey Play-Offs

Yesterday, I was in Frankfurt with a co-worker to watch the playoff semi-finals of the German ice-hockey league between the Frankfurt Lions and the Mannheim Eagles. It was a close match in the end, with a very exciting last third. Frankfurt had a lead of four goals after the second break, before Mannheim came back with a lot of action and speed play, shot three goals and had some more opportunities. Ice-hockey in its finest version!

The Eagles could have kicked out Frankfurt. Well, now they will have to try it again on Sunday. Ingolstadt also lost Berlin, again, and now needs two consecutive victories against the Polar Bears, which will be quite hard. Anyway, we?ll see it on Sunday. My dream of a final between Mannheim and Ingolstadt is still possible.
