Unfortunately the series last night was cut short due to technical difficulties and ultimately an issue with EA's servers affecting a limited amount of users. The semifinal series between Malmo Redhawks and Farjestad BK could not be finished as scheduled. We have determined one finalist, as Linkoping HC paved their way into the title matchup by overcoming Leksands IF with a series score of 3-1.
The call was made to continue the semifinal series between Malmo Redhawks and Farjestad BK today at 12:00 CET.
All of the action will be casted on Sportbladet starting 12:00 CET. Join in to see who joins Linköping HC in the finals!
The finals will be played directly after the semifinals have been concluded.
Let's go over the preview of the series once more:
REGULAR SEASON RECORD
19-3-0 vs 16-4-2
The Redhawks are currently on a record setting run, as they have not lost a game in their last 18(!) outings and with that are on a real heater into the playoffs. Right winger @FlyerKungen has been by far the most efficient scorer of the league, but the quarterfinals against Djurgarden Hockey showed that secondary scoring is no problem and to be fair that wasn't a concern to begin with. The talking point of this series will definitely be the matchup between HAVU Gaming players @Dominointi & @FlyerKungen on Malmos side and @willekunq & @Nassustelija representing Farjestad. In the regular season matchup, Malmos offense prevailed.
We should see slightly higher scoring in this series, as we have two very offensively talented teams on the ice, but it is also notable that statistically goaltending and defense hasn't been as strong as in the other semifinal series.
