Vasteras is now 3-0 since Brendan Mikkelson joined the club. Patrik Berglund followed up his four-point (1 G, 3 A) performance against Oskershamn before the break with two goals Monday night, one of which was the overtime game-winner but it was netminder Lars Johansson who stole the show, stopping 40 shots en route to his 13th win this season. Johnasson now leads the league with a .942 save-percentage. Patric Hornqvist of the Nashville Predators gave Djurgardens a tenuous lead in the second period after he buried a short-handed bid just a couple minutes after teammate Erik Gustafsson, a 2012 selection (4th round) by the Edmonton Oilers, tied the game at one. Chet Pickard, selected 18th overall by Nashville in 2008, stopped 17 shots to take the loss. Vasteras (12-6-2-0, 40 PTS) now returns home to face Malmo (8-9-2-1, 29 PTS) on Wednesday.
