Färjestad and Brynäs to semi final

Färjestad and Brynäs to semi final

22 Mar 2012 | Fredrik Pålsson

Two close games when the two last teams qualified for the semi finals in Sweden.

 
 
 
 
Färjestad - HV71 2-0 (series 4-2)

It was a very close game between two gigants in Swedish ice hockey. Färjestad took the lead in the first period when Marcus Paulsson scored on the power play.
 
HV71 did everything to come back but they just couldn't make it and Christopher Nihlstorp made 30 saves for the shutout. Closest for HV 71 were Jason Krog but his shot his both the bar and the post. In the last minute of the game Krog also had to leave the game with an injury.
 
Instead Färjestad hit the open net for 2-0 and there was big celebrations in Karlstad. For HV71 it was a big dissapointment to be eliminated in the quarter finals again.


Frölunda - Brynäs 3-4 OT (series 2-4)


Big drama when Brynäs qualified to the semi finals after winning in overtime. Jonathan Granström tied the game for Brynäs with only 27 seconds left of regular time after a chaotic situation in front of Andersen in Frölunda's goal. The goal took the game to overtime where perhaps the best player of the playoff so far Jakob Silfverberg scored the series winning goal after four minutes when his shot hit the bar and went in of the back of Andersen.

In regular time Brynäs was the better team in the first period but the score was tied 1-1 after goals by Pierre Johnsson and Silfverberg. In the second Frölunda took over and went up to a 3-1 lead after goals by Magnus Kahnberg and Anton Axelsson.

The third period was close and didn't have many shots on goal but Brynäs showed good fighting spirit when they managed to score twice anyway. First Daniel Widing scored on a rebound and then Granström got the tie at the end.
 

In the semi finals Skellefteå will play AIK while Brynäs will play Färjestad.
