Willis/Holmqvist Power Linkopings to Victory

Yes, that Shane Willis. Shane Willis, playing in his fifth game with Linkopings since transferring from HC Davos of the Swiss league, had his first Elitserien point assisting on a Jonas Soling game winning third period goal as Linkopings defeated Sodertalje 5-2. Defenseman Andreas Holmqvist also notched an assist on the goal. Goaltender Fredrik Norrena got the day off. With just one game remaining on the Elitserien schedule, Linkopings sits locked at the third seed in the league. Jimmie Olvestad and Djurgardens are well out of the playoff chase in tenth.
