Frolunda comes from a 1-2 loss in the visit to Djurgardens on Tuesday - fourth for this team in eight games in February (3-1-0-4 16/18).
In the matter of fact, Frolunda won each of its previous three games at Scandinavium against Djurgardens (3-2), Karlskrona (3-2) and Orebro last Saturday (2-0) and owns the second-best home record in the league (16-3-0-4 86-39), but there is an obvious decline in the form of this team lately, especially in offense, as the hosts were limited to two or fewer goals in seven of their previous eight games this month.
Ryan Lasch (winger / 14+32) has two goals and four assists in this period, but Andrew Johnson (winger / 17+22) has only four assists, while Joel Lundqvist (centre / 19+19) – one goal and an assist.In addition to that, Spencer Abbott (winger / 13+21) and Artturi Lekhonen (winger / 16+15) are out due to injuries.
Malmo is on eleventh position in the standings (13-5-5-23 104/132), with only theoretical chances to play the upcoming playoffs, but it doesn’t change the fact that this team is obvious upswing lately, as the guests seek a season-high fifth straight win and third on the road after those against Lulea on Feb. 16 (3-2 OT) and Farjestads last Saturday (5-3).
The guests conceded more than two goals in only three of their previous nine away games in 2016 (3-2-1-3 23/21), their attack is on a relatively good level for the standards of this league and their captain Henrik Hetta (winger / 2+6) returns to the squad for that game after injury.
I think that Malmo can win points from that game.
