Germany gets out of the cellar with 6-4 win.

Finally Germany gets off the schnide with a rare win.

The Germans and Fins were tied for last place, so it was only fitting they met this week to determine who would win the race for the bottom.

"I know Tony's doing all he can for that honor," said Rick Armand. "So I told our team to help him along."

Finland actually took a 3-2 lead after one thanks to a pair of goals from Mr. Regular Season Mark Melito.

But Germany would outscore the navy Fins 4-1 in the final two periods to skate away with a win and into a tie for 2nd place with Sweden.

"The good news is the bottom of the standings are real close," said Al Peterson. "Next week we might be in 2nd place, who knows."

That's positive thinking for a team that started 3-0 and now has lost 6 in a row.. They also have a league worst 33 goals for in 9 games.

"I think the weather has alot to do with our losing streak," said Jake Steigerwald. "It takes a while for some of our older guys to get loose on cold days."

For the winners, they are hoping to get some key guys back, and hope others keep staying home.

"As soon as we get the right mix, one of the fringe guys shows up and screws up our chemistry," said Tripp Talbot.
