The SHL match between Oskarshamn and Rögle was defined by powerplay and boxplay, the game in numerical upper and lower position.
Rögle took the lead in powerplay early on the slope Kodie Curran and despite the fact that Skånelaget had twelve deportation minutes in the first period, it would take until the second period before Oskarshamn received a receipt puck. That goal made Joakim Thelin in powerplay.
But the match was Rögles to win and again it was in powerplay that Kodie Curran set the 2-1 goal. The home team pressed for a receipt in the third period but former Oskarshamn goalkeeper Christoffer Rifalk was indomitable in the cage and saved Rögle. Oskarshamn has thus lost five straight matches and is last in SHL.
- We create a lot in powerplay and are ineffective. These are such games that we have to win. It bounces against, Oskarshamns forward Jonas Engström told C More.
