Frolunda HC vs Lulea HF by 20legend
A high-flying Frolunda will take on a Lulea team that is struggling a lot with injuries before tonight match.
Frolunda is on fire at the moment with four straight wins and 16:7 on goal difference, before surprisingly losing against Vaxjo (3-2) after penalties in their last match. Frolunda is currently in 2nd position with 45 points in 24 matches and a total 12/6 win-lose record.
Luela has a 9/8 win-lose record this season and holds on to their 5th place at the table with 38 points from 24 matches. However, it is going to be tough for the team to not falling at the table with their current injury-problems, which their recent games also prove. Lulea has lost seven of their latest nine games (two in OT), and just won two games (one in OT) in the same period.
Lulea will miss Johan Forsbeg and Johan Fransson, but in addition, they lost the important playmaker Niklas Olausson (9 goals, 12 assists) to injury in the last game against Leksands. Per Ledin (6 goals, 9 assists) is doubtful.
Frolunda should strike back here and I expect them to keep up their great offensive play from their four wins before the Vexjo-game. Lulea clearly has problems tonight, and the abcent of Olausson should be highly noticeable for Lulea, also for the currently point-leader in SHL, Linus Klasen (13 goals, 20 assists) who has been great together with Olausson. Frolunda to score at least three goals should be very likely tonight.
