DiPietro's German team beaten again --this time on a penalty shot ... in overtime.

I tweeted last evening two brief notes:

Rick DiPietro's German tm lost in OT tonight 5-4-Winnipeg native Kevin Saurette completed a hat trick by beating DP on an OT pen shot #isles
Kevin Saurette, who had 3 goals vs DiPietro today scored 2 goals in 27 career AHL games--never played in NHL--5th ssn in Germany.

A little more color --it was DiPietro 2nd German start.

As it was after his first start, the google translate provides a bit of a giggle:

<<ESV Kaufbeuren Bundesliga. Meets again youngster Markus Eisenschmid. Those who are already Matt D'Agostini and Rick DiPietro especially? Even two NHL players in the SC Riessersee services, including one of the most expensive goalkeeper in the world could that selflessly struggling young Kaufbeurer force before 1233 spectators not obstruct the way to the third round of the DEB Cup.
Converted a penalty to 5:4 in extra time and two other gates Kevin Saurette sticking out of a homogeneous force out yet.
Ken Latta ordered, in contrast to his notice, to provide back-up John Wiedemann match practice, again the far superior Stefan Vajs into the goal. After just 27 seconds outwitted Louke Oakley NHL goalie DiPietro and took his team 1-0 in front.
....
The second period belonged to the first of Wertach townspeople who walked again by Kevin Saurette lead. With a strong team performance and an outstanding goalkeeper Stefan Vajs the red and yellow braced against the attacks of Werdenfelser and were rewarded after 37 minutes again. The 17-year old Markus Eisenschmid overcame DiPietro to 2:4 and will forget that evening in his life probably never farther. 
....

After referee Roland Seckler in the subsequent extension following a challenge by Benedict Kastner decided on penalty, had Kevin Saurette against NHL goalie DiPietro's decision on the racket. And the Canadians did not miss this unique opportunity, the Garmisch were loaded keeper and netted the 5-4 victory, and the red and yellow did so with great jubilation in the next cup round.>>
