Ilves took on one of the league's best teams in Kalpa Friday night and was roughed up accordingly, falling behind 2-0 by the end of the first period but putting up seventeen shots and keeping the action close in the second before a listless performance in final frame. Former Lightning prospect Matias Sointu  was the lone Ilves player praised for his effort in the team's official recap. Ilves (4-16-3-3, 21 points) now travels to face a club that has struggled almost as much as they have this season in Pelicans (6-16-2-3, 25 points) on Saturday night.
