With just over five minutes left in regular time, Brynäs equalized to make it 2–2 through Jacob Blomqvist.

After a scoreless overtime, the match went to penalties and there Hannes Björninen decided for the home team.

It was the second time this season that he shot the extra point to Brynäs in a shootout.

- Apart from the first goal, I handled myself well and so did the boys.

We decided today and it's nice that it worked, says Brynäs Anders Lindbäck in C More.

The goalkeeper accounted for three saves in the shootout and also had a penalty save during the match when he stopped Rickard Hugg's attempt in the second period.

The loss meant that Skellefteå, which had the lead twice in the match, lost the series lead when Växjö won against Örebro.

- Sour to cod, it was not a smart effort from us.

We had the lead twice but lost, we should have gone more for the third goal than we did, says Robert Ohlsson, coach in Skellefteå, in C More.
