Elitserien (Sweden):
Farjestads 1 @ Lulea 4
Johan Harju, Lulea, 1-0-1, +2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 49 GP, 14-7-21, +6, 16 PIM

Johan Harju scored the game opening goal in Lulea's 4-1 rout of Farjestads. Somewhat unbelievably, Harju is still tied for 15th in the league in goals despite his putrid second-half production. Niklas Olausson had 1 goal and 2 assists for Lulea in the match. With just 4 games remaining in the regular season, Lulea holds the top spot in the Elitserien and a 5 point lead over 2nd place, which is a 3-way tie between Frolunda, Skelleftea, and Brynas. If the season ended today, the 1/8 matchup would be between Lulea and sub-.500 MODO, which holds a 18-22-11 record. Lulea draws Timra next on Tuesday.
