Leksand came to the match with six straight losses in the luggage and was met by an almost crowded home arena and a crazy home crowd that created a boiling atmosphere.
But that party destroyed Djurgården already after nine seconds. Several mistakes in the home team led to Alexander Holtz pucking and trailing 1-0 in the cross.
"I got a good fit on the blade and looked up to see where it was free," said the shooter in C More.

Then Leksand took over the game and led the game. The Dalal team lined up goal chances in the first period - with no results. The reason was Niklas Svedberg, the new acquisition from Timrå, who played big in Djurgården's goal. His rescues impressed the teammates greatly.
- Svedberg has been fantastic. He saved us in the match, said Alexander Holtz of C More.
Instead, Djurgården was the effective team. When Kalle Östman scored 2-0 after 11.27, it became a mental crack for Leksand, which was then knocked out by Patrik Berglund's "Foppa penalty / Kenta Nilsson penalty" which meant 3-0 after 12.13 in the second period.Olympic memories
A penalty that resulted from Djurgården's Mattias Guter being hooked in the open position. Then Patrik Berglund stepped in and created the evening snack ice cream in Leksand with a penalty goal that got his mind to the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer.
- I've shot penalties all my life, but missed out on the end. That's why I tried to figure out something new. Lucky it slipped in, said Patrik Berglund in C More.

That goal lowered Leksand, who recorded the seventh straight victory. In the last period, the valley team created several goals, but Niklas Svedberg kept the style. Now it is a lot that is difficult for Leksand - both backwards and forwards. The best in the home arena was the home bell.
Within Djurgården, one should be most pleased with three points and the team's good goalkeeper Niklas Svedberg, who became the match winner. But in terms of play, there is more to be desired if Djurgården is to establish itself as a top team in the series. It is too much mistake and tuck pin that needs to be adjusted.
