Brynas 3 @ MODO 1
Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, +1, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
Season totals: 53 GP, 17-9-26, -7, 16 PIM
After winning just once in in its previous nine matches, Brynas took an initial lead which it built on and expanded a second time after MODO made it 2-1 to secure a much-needed regulation win with the season winding down and AIK nipping at their heels for the league's last playoff spot. After scoring last match, Harju had a mostly clean stat line. Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist, who got the nod yet again, stopped 24 of 25 shots on goal in the match. On Saturday, Brynas (16-19-6-12, 72 PTS) travels to take on AIK (15-24-7-7, 66 PTS), which has three straight victories over the pending visitors.
