Gustaf Wesslau stopped all 32 shots he faced to propel HV 71 to its fourth-consecutive win over Brynas and atop the league standings. Brynas fell behind early in the first period when Mattias Karlsson and David Petrasek capitalized on even-strength scoring chances just minutes apart. Brynas continued to trail by two until Robin Rahm was pulled to give Brynas an extra attacker in the final two minutes of the game and Andreas Jamtin added an empty-netter for HV 71. This was the 14th game Lightning overage prospect Johan Harju was held pointless this season. Brynas (9-7-3-3, 36 PTS) now has a couple days to rest before playing host to MODO (8-9-1-4, 30 PTS), which Brynas has has had recent success against at home having defeated MODO the last four times the teams have played in Gavle.
