    Brynas 2 vs. Linkopings 4

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 1-0-1, -2, 3 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 55 GP, 18-10-28, -9, 16 PIM

    In its regular season finale and with playoff action already a certainty, Brynas jumped out a lead early in the first but Linkopings would respond quickly and often, scoring three times in the first period and once in the second, to carry the match. Johan Harju opened the scoring in the first period when, while parked in front of and facing away from the net during a power play, he chipped a pass to his forehand side, wheeled and quickly shoved it on goal. The shot narrowly tucked past the outstretched right leg pad of opposing netminder Christian Engstrand and inside the right post, giving Harju his team-high 18th goal of the season and a fourth-place finish in total points. Skelleftea, the league's regular season leader in the standings, has chosen Brynas, which finished the regular season with a 17-20-6-12 record (75 points) that earned them the last playoff spot, to be its quarterfinals opponent. Both teams will square off for the first game of the pending series next Tuesday.
