    Brynas entered game four of the best-of-seven series with their season on life-support, needing a win to stay alive, but crumbled after Skelleftea struck on the power play approaching the midpoint of the middle frame and wound up shutout and swept in front of the home crowd. Just as had been the case in the three previous matches, Brynas had difficulty solving Skelleftea's goaltending, even despite seeing more balance in the frequency of opportunities. Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist, who made every start for Brynas, stopped 29 of 32 Skelleftea attempts on net. Like his club, Johan Harju, who was his team's leading goal-scorer and among the team leaders in total production in the regular season, finished his postseason in extremely disappointing fashion having gone pointless in the series.

    Brynas came into the third game of the best-of-seven series in desperate need of a win but came up well short, allowing Skelleftea to score four unanswered goals after taking the initial lead just past the midpoint of the middle period, Saturday night. Brynas only managed to get 22 of 36 attempted shots on goal while, as was the case in the first match, Skelleftea was relentless with its possession game, registering 45 shots, 19 of which came in the final frame, on 60 attempts. Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist was back between the pipes after being pulled in the previous match. Holmqvist, who was tested early and often, made 41 saves. Johan Harju, like so many of his teammates, continues to find himself stifled. Brynas will now host Skelleftea on Monday with their season in grave jeopardy of coming to the swiftest conclusion possible.

    Elitserien Playoffs (Sweden)
    Quarterfinals
    Brynas 3 vs. Skelleftea 7
    Skelleftea leads the series 2-0

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, -3, 5 SOG, 0 PIM
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 55 GP, 18-10-28, -9, 16 PIM

    Brynas found itself down 5-0 early in the third period before it managed to notch a couple goals of its own but Skelleftea, the league's top team in the standings during regular season, responded in kind to complete its second-straight rout of the 8th-place seed. After being heavily outshot in the first game of the series, Brynas managed to finish the second match with a virtually balanced short-margin although that was due in large part to the lopsided after the midway point of the middle frame. Brynas has been outscored 12-3 in the series so far. Johan Harju, one of the key offensive pieces for Brynas, has yet to find the net, nor register an assist, after finishing the season as the club's leading goal-scorer and one of the top overall producers. After getting the start, former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist was pulled in favor of Robin Rahm after allowing 4 goals on 26 shots. Rahm didn't fare much better, surrendering 3 goals on 6 shots, but Holmqvist was still charged with the loss. Brynas heads back to Skelleftea's barn on Saturday to try and stave off a third-consecutive loss that would put the club's season on the brink in the best-of-seven series.

    Eighth-seed Brynas managed to hang with the league's top club for the better part of two periods but Skelleftea struck twice within a minute shortly before the second intermission and then piled on three more goals in the final frame to complete what amounted to a thorough rout of the visitors. Brynas, which allowed Skelleftea 62 attempted shots, spent a lot of time defending and, not surprisingly, thus had difficulty mounting much of an attack at the other end, only managing to attempt 22 shots, of which only 14 made it on goal. Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist stopped 36 of the 41 shots he faced in the loss. Brynas hosts Skelleftea on Thursday for the second match of the best-of-seven series.
