Lars Johansson stopped all twenty-six of the twenty-seven shots he faced but Vasteras, which shut out Karlskrona with an identical score on Sunday, lost to Tingsryds due to the late game heroics of Jordan Smotherman. Vasteras dominated zone possession (59% to 41%), particularly nearly doubling up Tingsryds in time spent on the attack, and held the advantage in shots (36-27) but couldn't crack the netminder for Tingsryds, Linus Styrman. Vasteras (15-8-3-1, 52 PTS), which has won seven of the ten games it has played since locked-out Lightning defenseman Brendan Mikkelson joined the club, is set to host Almtuna (8-17-0-2, 26 PTS) on Thursday.
