    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 5 vs. MODO 6 (OT)

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 1-0-1, +4, 3 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 23 GP, 8-4-12, +3, 29 PIM

    Brynas earned a point but squandered three separate leads, twice after being up by two goals, en route to its fifth-straight loss at home. David Gunnarsson scored for MODO just 19 seconds after Calle Jarnkrok put Brynas ahead with just under seven minutes to play in regulation and Richie Regehr finished MODO's comeback with less than a minute remaining in the overtime session by striking on the power play. MODO won the special teams battle, scoring two timely goals with the man-advantage in three opportunities while Brynas failed to solve the MODO penalty-kill four different times. Daniel Widing had hat trick in what amounted to a whale of a game (4 PTS, +3, 6 SOG) for Brynas' right-winger. Harju, who helped pad the home club's initial lead in the first period after getting behind the opposing defenders and gathering a stretch pass that sent him in alone on MODO netminder Bernhard Starkbaum, was one of the even-strength stalwarts tonight and shared the night's best +/- rating with teammate Sebastian Enterfeldt, who assisted on three Brynas goals. Up next for Brynas (9-7-3-4, 37 PTS) is a tilt against slumping AIK (6-12-1-4, 24 PTS), which has had its own troubles closing out games and has a league-high four losses in overtime, on Tuesday.

    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 1 vs. Assat 3

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, L, 2.02 GAA, 31/33 (.939 SV%)
    Season totals: 5 GP, 1-3-1, 0 SO, 3.75 GAA, 138/157 (.879 SV%)

    Anders Lindback had his best game since his SM-Liiga debut a few weeks back but an empty-net goal in the final minute helped Assat edge past Ilves Friday night. Assat broke a scoreless tie in the second period when Michael Ryan scored twice in a three-minute span as the second period winding down. Kai Kantola helped Ilves make things somewhat interesting by scoring early in the third period but further offensive momentum proved difficult to generate. Ilves (league-worst 19 points) will have some extended time to prepare for their next game against the Espoo Blues (36 points) next Wednesday. Ilves won the last match between the two clubs, 4-3, earlier this month.

    Russia finished the Subway Super Series with a record of 3-2-0-1 after defeating the WHL, 5-2, on Thursday night in Victoria, B.C. Top Lightning prospect Andrei Vasilevskiy served as backup to Andrei Makarov, who started his second game in a row for Russia. He took a shutout into the shootout in Russia's first game against the WHL.

    Russia wanted to bring over a strong representation this year in preparation for the upcoming World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. It's safe to say they succeeded, as they won the series for the first time.

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, -2, 0 SOG, 0 PIM

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.

Shinkurak went to the box for a coincidental minor (unsportsmanlike conduct for embellishment) with Nesterov on the latter penalty.

    Vasteras 1 vs. Malmo 4

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 0-0-0, E, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 4 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM

    Vasteras lost for the first time with Brendan Mikkelson in the lineup, the productive duo of locked-out NHLers Patrik Berglund and Mikael Backlund were held scoreless and Lars Johansson could only stop 12 of 15 shots on a night the old joke about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory seems particularly poignant. At the end of the first, Vasteras held a 14 to 1 advantage in shots, had been on the power play three times and had yet to go down a man. Vasteras continued to dictate play in the second, putting up another 13 shots and taking three more cracks at the man advantage, but wound up heading into the third trailing by two. Vasteras finally solved Malmo's netminder Pontus Sjogren just after the start of the third period when Tim Heed buried a feed from Matt Fornataro, formerly of the Lightning farm system and the player who was sent to Chicago in exchange for Brandon Segal last season, Vasteras would not get the score any closer despite yet another three power play chances in the final frame. Mattias Persson scored twice for Malmo. Vasteras (12-7-2-0, 40 PTS) now regroups to continue the current home stand against fellow league powerhouse Karlskoga (15-6-0-0, 45 PTS) on Saturday.
