Elitserien Playoff Game Night: 3-16-13

Elitserien Playoffs (Sweden)
Brynas 1 @ Skelleftea 4
Skelleftea leads the series 3-0

Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, -1, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
Playoff totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -4, 0 PIM
Season totals: 55 GP, 18-10-28, -9, 16 PIM

Brynas came into the third game of the best-of-seven series in desperate need of a win but came up well short, allowing Skelleftea to score four unanswered goals after taking the initial lead just past the midpoint of the middle period, Saturday night. Brynas only managed to get 22 of 36 attempted shots on goal while, as was the case in the first match, Skelleftea was relentless with its possession game, registering 45 shots, 19 of which came in the final frame, on 60 attempts. Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist was back between the pipes after being pulled in the previous match. Holmqvist, who was tested early and often, made 41 saves. Johan Harju, like so many of his teammates, continues to find himself stifled. Brynas will now host Skelleftea on Monday with their season in grave jeopardy of coming to the swiftest conclusion possible.
