After falling behind early in the match, Vasteras took a 2-1 lead by the end of the first period that held up until Mora scored on a power play goal just a few minutes into the third period which it followed with an even-strength strike just twenty-eight seconds later to move ahead for good. Mikael Backlund and Patrik Berglund scored for Vasteras while fellow NHLer Bobby Ryan score the game-winner for Mora, whom locked-out Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar also plays for. Vasteras (17-9-3-2, 59 PTS) now heads into a brief Christmas break, will return to action in a road match next Wednesday against Oskarshamn (14-13-3-0, 48 PTS).
