Brynas fell on the road after Farjestad's Chris Lee broke a 2-2 tie late in the third period. Johan Holmqvist, making his second-straight start, was charged with a loss again, this time stopping thirteen of just sixteen shots on goal. After going scoreless for a few games, Johan Harju registered a primary assist on Simon Lof's even-strength goal with about ten minutes remaining in regulation. On the play, Harju wheeled out of the corner with the puck and found Lof, a defenseman, above the circles for an open look and Lof fired a snap-shot that found the net through traffic. Brynas (13-9-4-7, 54 PTS) returns home to take on Lulea (15-8-6-5, 62 PTS) on Sunday.
