    Brynas 3 vs. Farjestads 4 (OT)

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 1-0-1, -1, 4 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 25 GP, 9-5-14, +3, 31 PIM

    Farjestads jumped out to a 2-0 lead midway through the first period and led until Johan Harju scored near the midpoint of the third period to send the game to overtime. There, in the final minute, Marcus Paulsson tapped in a loose rebound after a blast from the right circle to win the game for Farjestads, which really came on strong with seven shots in the extra session. Brynas earned a point, but it was the club's fourth consecutive loss. Harju's goal was a thing of beauty; on the play, he took a pass to his backhand while moving behind the net and, with a defender leaning on his back, angled the puck on his forehand towards the top of the crease before stopping and spinning to his backhand suddenly, shedding the defender, and then leisurely lifting a backhander up and over down-and-out Farjestads netminder Alexander Salak and into the wide-open net. Brynas (9-7-3-6, 39 PTS) next travels to face Lulea (11-6-5-2, 45 PTS), which it has beaten each of the last five games Lulea has been the host, on Saturday.

    Ilves 2 vs. TPS 1 (OT)

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, W, 0.92 GAA, 46/47 (.979 SV%)
    Season totals: 7 GP, 2-4-1, 0 SO, 3.36 GAA, 227/251 (.904 SV%)

    After two close losses in which he played very well, especially in last night's defeat to the Blues, Anders Lindback delivered a sensational performance Thursday night, his best to date in SM-Liiga play, in backstopping Ilves to a shootout win over TPS. After a scoreless first period, TPS struck first midway through the second period before Michael Keranen evened the score a couple minutes later for all the the scoring both teams would manage despite numerous offensive flurries--both teams combined for a total of 140 attempted shots on goal--at both ends throughout the match. Ville Koistenen scored the only goal of the shootout when he beat TPS netminder Atte Engren, who was also superb for the visiting squad, with a backhander. Locked-out NHLers Maxime Talbot (Ilves) and Kris Russell (TPS) registered secondary assists. After two games in two nights, Ilves (4-14-3-3, 21 points) is off until next Tuesday when they will face Lukko (9-12-1-3, 32 points).

    Ilves 3 @ Blues 4

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, L, 4.09 GAA, 43/47 (.914 SV%)
    Season totals: 6 GP, 1-4-1, 0 SO, 3.81 GAA, 181/204 (.887 SV%)

    Anders Lindback followed up an impressive showing in a close loss to Assat on Friday night with a solid performance in yet another narrow defeat Wednesday night. After falling behind 3-1 in the first period, Ilves rallied, with goals from Matias Chord and Maxime Talbot, to send the game tied into the final frame but Niko Nieminen's second goal of the night with just over ten minutes remaining in the game proved ended up being the game-winner for the Blues, which ran the league's worst team ragged for the better part of the game. In so doing, the Blues kept Lindback busy with nearly 70 shot attempts, 47 of which made it on net, all the while limiting Ilves to 44 attempts and 23 actual shots on goal. Ilves (4-14-2-3, 19 points) has little time to dwell on this latest loss as they face TPS (4-10-5-4, 26 points), a team that has struggled almost as much as Ilves has so far this season, on Thursday.
