After jumping out to a 2-0 first period lead, Frolunda, a team bolstered by a mix of current and former NHLers (P.J. Axelsson, Fabian Brunnstrom, Christian Backman, Matt Duchene, Joel Lundqvist and Fredrik Sjostrom), held visiting Brynas at bay offensively to secure a shutout victory. Johan Harju played 19:26, the second-most minutes among forwards, for Brynas and former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist, who stopped twenty-one of twenty-three Frolunda shots, took the loss. On Tuesday, Brynas (11-9-3-6, 45 PTS) will hit the road again to take on third-place Skelleftea (16-9-2-2, 54 PTS).
