    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.

    Ravensburg 4 @ SC Riessersee 2

    Adam Hall, Ravensburg, 1-0-1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 8 GP, 3-2-5, 29 PIM

    Adam Hall scored in his first game back since receiving a match penalty against SERC as the Towerstars beat lowly Riessersee Tuesday night. St. Louis Blues forward Matt D'Agostini opened the game's scoring late in the first to give Riessersee an extremely brief lead as Matt Kelly and Hall scored just 27 and 53 seconds, respectively, after D'Agostini before Fredrik Cabana would find the net a couple minutes later to give Ravensburg a 3-1 lead heading into the first intermission. The Towerstars lead expanded to 4-1 in the second thanks Radek Krestan and would stay that way until the closing minutes of the game when the Ottawa Senators' Erik Condra, who also had an assist in the match, capitalized on a Riessersee power play. Ravensburg (7-6-2-1, 26 PTS) will return home to face Crimmitschau (5-8-3-0, 21 PTS) on Sunday.

    Season totals: 4 GP, 1-2-1, 0 SO, 4.19 GAA, 107/124 (.863 SV%)

    Karpat pulled away from Ilves, which has struggled all season, in the third period to hand Anders Lindback his second regulation loss. Karpat took a commanding 3-0 lead in the second when former Bolt Jussi Jokinen beat Lindback for a power play marker but with the score 4-1 early in the third, Max Talbot of the Philadelphia Flyers scored to spark an Ilves comeback that ultimately fell short when Antti Makila made it 5-3 Karpat in the final minute of play while Lindback was off for the extra-attacker. Ilves, still bringing up the SM-Liiga rear with 19 points, next faces Assat, which has 29 points to date and beat Ilves handily (6-1) the last time the two teams faced each other, on Friday.

    Vasteras 3 @ Djurgarden 2 (OT)

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 0-0-0, E, 2 SOG, 4 PIM (hooking, cross-checking)
    Season totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM

    Vasteras is now 3-0 since Brendan Mikkelson joined the club. Patrik Berglund followed up his four-point (1 G, 3 A) performance against Oskershamn before the break with two goals Monday night, one of which was the overtime game-winner but it was netminder Lars Johansson who stole the show, stopping 40 shots en route to his 13th win this season. Johnasson now leads the league with a .942 save-percentage. Patric Hornqvist of the Nashville Predators gave Djurgardens a tenuous lead in the second period after he buried a short-handed bid just a couple minutes after teammate Erik Gustafsson, a 2012 selection (4th round) by the Edmonton Oilers, tied the game at one. Chet Pickard, selected 18th overall by Nashville in 2008, stopped 17 shots to take the loss. Vasteras (12-6-2-0, 40 PTS) now returns home to face Malmo (8-9-2-1, 29 PTS) on Wednesday.

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 21 GP, 7-4-11, +1, 29 PIM

    Bolstered by Andreas Thuresson's two goals and and Robin Rahm's steady performance (28 total saves) in net, Brynas leapfrogged Linkopings in the standings with a decisive road victory. Johan Harju had the primary assist on what proved to be the game-winning goal by Sebastian Enterfeldt with just over three minutes remaining in the first. Harju now has points (2 goals, 2 assists) in three of his last four Elitserien games dating back to October 30th. Calle Jarnkrok, selected in the 2nd round of the 2010 NHL entry draft by Detroit, hit the stat sheet with two assists. Late in the second period, Simon Hjalmarsson managed the lone score for Linkopings, which sent plenty of rubber (23 shots) Rahm's way over the middle and final frame but could not get the score any closer. Up next for Brynas (9-6-3-3, 36 PTS) is a showdown with league-leading HV 71, (12-4-3-1, 43 PTS), which has won the last three matches between the two clubs, on Thursday.

The game-winning goal was scored when Vasilevskiy (pictured) deflected a hard low shot from his right to the weak side, where an unmarked Frankie Corrado (Canucks) had crept in from the point and deposited the puck into an empty net. Vasilevskiy made several remarkable saves to keep his team in the game and was named Player of the Game for the Russian side for the second time in three starts. Fellow Lightning prospect Nikita Nesterov wore an alternate captain's A for Russia and played in all game situations.

    Russia (2-2) will play the WHL starting on Wednesday in Vancouver.
