Vasteras entered the third period with a 4-2 lead Almtuna would erase before Mikael Backlund would score the game-winner for Vasteras. It was a rough showing for Buffalo Sabres goalie Jhonas Enroth, who was in net for Almtuna, although former Bolt Mike Lundin had two assists and five shots for the home squad. Brendan Mikkelson earned two helpers, the first by pinching, gathering the puck and then throwing it towards the net and the second by routinely dishing the puck cross-point on the power play before it was fed into the slot where the goal-scoring shot was taken. Vasteras (16-8-3-1, 55 PTS) is back in action on Saturday against Troja/Ljungby (12-14-1-1, 39 PTS).
