Kickers ever deeper in the crisis
Despite a fairly balanced game on Friday evening, the two head coaches - Marco Antwerpen from FC Kaiserslautern and Kickers coach Rals Sentelli - could hardly exist in various situations.

Hall was retaliating for a hit from Lybushkin that some considered dangerous, though it did not draw a penalty from officials. The Bruins forward would score later in the game to make it 6-4, but ultimately end up losing the game as Toronto held on with just four healthy defensemen. It’s Lyubushkin’s health that will be the biggest concern for Maple Leafs fans, as the team doesn’t have a ton of depth on the right side.
"We have seen a very intense game in which it went up and down in the first half," Antwerp summarized at the press conference after the game. The hit by Mike Whimsically in the 32st minute was for his team "The starting signal", in the final phase you have "thrown in every shot and defended everything away.

Looking at a potential Jesper Bratt extension
To any fan of the New Jersey Devils, Jesper Bratt is a no-doubt star, and one of the bright spots on a young, still-rebuilding team that has seen it’s share of struggles the past few seasons. However, to many other hockey fans around the league, Bratt may still be somewhat of an unknown. A surprise to some would be that the young Devils forward is a point-per-game player this season, leading his team in points, and second on his team in points-per-game to budding star Jack Hughes. On top of all that, Bratt has one more thing going for him: he’ll be a restricted free agent this summer.
Five finals for Würzburg
Kickers coach Santelli spoke of a "deserved" victory of the red devil. Nevertheless, one has seen "no difference due to table placement, there were two equivalent teams in the square. The game has decided on nuances." The table situation of the kickers becomes more and more critical, seven points is the saving 16th place with each lost point. "We now have a final game less," says Santelli. "Now five games remain where we will do it all to collect points. As long as the crop is possible, the team will do that too."
"I only saw the yellow card. I got red? "(Ralf Santelli)
also Kurios: After the final whistle, Santelli had seen yellow for meckern's yellow, when the 53-year-old still did not want to calm down, there was the yellow-red card afterwards. However, the coach had apparently not perceived at all. On request, as he assessed the point reference, Santelli was surprised: "I only saw the yellow card, I got red? I did not see that, I've been pushing away. That's interesting. Was red? Then I do not know? why." When dealing, it was "little things". "I did not find bad now," said the coach. "It is as it is." Santelli will probably be missing at the duel in Braunschweig next 34th matchday (Saturday, 2 pm, live! At Kicker) on the coach bank.
