Many expected Storvreta to take the win today, especially after a golden start. But it was Mullsjö to take the important win today and equalize the semifinals series.
Watch: Highlights from the game!
Storvreta opened the game with lightning speed and took charge of the game from the beginning. It was Storvreta’s third line specifically that delivered blow after blow and gave Storvreta a comfortable lead with 3-0. However, Mullsjö was never far away and eventually was able to equalize the game with 4-4. A small final-period offensive gave Storvreta a 6-4 lead but in the final minutes of the game Mullsjö was able to bring the game into overtime thanks to a goal of captain David Gillek with just 12 seconds left. Storvreta dominated the overtime and came very close on a couple of occasions but eventually it looked like the game would be decided by penalty shots. However, one moment of lowered focus on Storvreta’s side proved lethal as Kasper Hedlund found enough room to place the 7-6 in a free ball, just 23 seconds before the overtime would end.
Next game will be played on Thursday at 19:00 local time.
