Facing a top club 30 points ahead in the league standings, Brynas was efficient, netting three goals despite limited opportunities to force overtime but former NHLer Jason Krog spoiled a potential upset with a goal during the extra session that gave HV 71 the extra point. Gustaf Wesslau, who got the start in net for HV 71, only saw 17 shots in the contest. Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist, who was peppered all night, stopped 37 of 41 shots in defeat. Johan Harju potted his first goal since January 24th, a span of eight games. Brynas (15-19-6-12, 69 PTS) now returns home to face MODO (19-18-7-8, 79 PTS) Thursday.
