Not really. Pull the goalie and score and an even strength goal against a tired, beat up team who's best player had a punctured lung.

Fyp. Shorties happen. But once you have possession it shouldn't be that hard to maintain it. Just pass it around. Dman needlessly tried to take a clapper off someone's shin pads and lost them possession and ultimately the gold medal.

OAR may genuinely happen for the rest of the forseeable future, through 2028.
Damn it, should have convinced you to make the bet. IOC reinstated OCR

Btw: in the aftermath of our success, the streaming service that broadcasts DEL (along with Basketball and 3rd division soccer) is offering all of today's matchday games for free. It's only three games from the Playoffs starting so the timing works out pretty great. Plus, Marco Sturm will be the guest in a traditional Sports show for the second time in like four weeks which basically never happens to non-soccer people. I very much doubt this medal will be the start of something sustainable around here but it's encouraging.

The main problem will be imo that there is also the Football World Championships this year. If Germany does well in that one and the icehockey team has an early exit in their world championship I doubt anybody will remember the olympics.

Yeah being relegated now that people may be excited to watch the WHC would be the most german hockey thing ever, but we're up to 7th in the world rankings which should help the seeding.

7th!!
