The ice hockey national team has recovered the Germany Cup for the first time for six years. On Sunday, the selection of national coach Toni Söderholm in Krefeld came in the crucial game against Slovakia to a 4: 1 (2: 0, 1: 1, 1: 0). This was the third victory in the third game at the traditional home tournament of the deb.
Before the disappointing backdrop of only 2309 spectators, Leo Farmers shot by Master Mistaken Berlin (1st minute), twice ex-NHL striker Tobias Raider (6./56.) And Dominik Bittner (39th) of the Grizzlies Wolfsburg the gates For the again convincing replacement powerful German team. Samuel Buck (26th) met for the ex-world champion.
Deb team this time from the beginning
Söderholm had deliberately renounced Krefeld on several service providers and instead wanted to test potential wobbly candidates three months before the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing and, above all, with regard to the World Cup in May. This was impressive. On all match days in Krefeld once again a team of Söderholm together convinced by enormous team spirit, joy of play and train to the gate. Södelholm could even afford against the Slovaks, which has so far convincing Munich Patrick Eager and Basin Ellis to protect.
Unlike 4: 3 on Thursday against Russia and 3-0 on Saturday against Switzerland, the German team was there from the beginning this time and acted extremely determined. After 14 seconds Berlin s Fader succeeded after a great combination the fast leadership. For the Olympia second of 2018, which is likely to have very good opportunities for a renewed Olympic participation, it was the third tournamentator.
Little later, the now in Sweden at the Växjö Lakers, former NHL striker Raider also met for the third and good four minutes before the end with a decidedly single entity for the fourth time in the third game. The 28-year-old is also one of the secure candidates for Beijing. Otherwise, the selection for Söderholm is tricky. Through the Olympic Return of the NHL stars, which were not included in Krefeld, some tickets are safely awarded.

Goalkeeper Dustin Retrain from the Grizzlies Wolfsburg, who showed a convincing performance again on Sunday, is likely to become a topic for the World Cup in Helsinki, as many other players from the Germany Cup squad, for which some Olympic arts are not expected for which, as expected.
Also, some of Krefeld s established national players such as Mannheim Markus Eisenschmid, David Wolf or the Muncher Maximilian Master and Frederik Differs are likely to have heavy in view of the achievements of some Germany Cup players to slip into the Olympia squad. In Krefeld, some unconcerned talents were attentive to Düsseldorf s Alexander EHL. The 21-year-old amazed with his puck security and quickness. Also, Bittner, who achieved the 3-1 in the middle of the middle section, also played a good tournament in the defense.
