Holmqvist Strong in Victory Over MODO

Andreas Holmqvist is finding that his new promotion to the first pairing in Linkopings suits him. After notching his first point of the season in the club's last game, Holmqvist today notched his first goal and first multi-point game as Linkopings defeated MODO 4-1. The defenseman scored a power play goal early in the second period to knot the game at 1-1 and then assisted on Linkopings' final goal, a talley by Jussi Tarvainen, early in the third. Holmqvist now has 3 points in 5 games this season. Goaltender Fredrik Norrena stopped 23 of 24 shots faced to go to a perfect 5-0 on the season.
