Our broadcast of the night will as per usual feature some of the very best that NHL 6v6 has to offer, this time in the form of an ECL bout at the very highest level when undefeated JYP take on the juggernaut and equally undefeated HAVU Gaming in our first matchup of the night. In our second matchup of the night, we'll see two teams who are desperately trying to jumpstart their seasons when Farjestad BK go up against GHETTO FIREBIRDS.
Dynamic duo @Tougie24 and @Cyn will be casting the action for the duration of the night.
HAVU Gaming vs JYP Jyvaskyla
10-0-0 vs 10-0-0
Tuukka @FlyerKungen Kuha (15+18=33) vs Kristian @kriketski17 Veijola (15+10=25)
Hannes @Hansulinho Kettunen (10 W, 86,21 SV%, 0,8 GAA, 5 SO) vs Oskari @sibeelius Grönroos (10 W, 89,19 SV%, 1,2 GAA, 3 SO)
This is going to be an interesting fight between the two top dogs of the division and we're expecting two tremendously skilled teams to go to war in this double-header for the top spot of the league. Both teams have shown equally strong performances as of late, but if an advantage has to be given, it would be a slight one for HAVU because of the sheer experience that their group has of playing together. JYP made some major changes to their squad in the offseason and have proven themselves to be a serious contender this time. @kriketski17 has turned out to be the perfect addition to their already strong forward core as his craftiness has been a great asset so far.
Farjestad BK vs GHETTO FIREBIRDS
3-4-1 vs 3-3-4
Sebastian @eBasstian Nagel (8+7=15) vs Jere @Jertsicc Sirviö (6+7=13)
Johan @Rundqviiist Rundqvist (3 W, 75,23 SV%, 3,38 GAA) Jere @Jeresti Kulju (3 W, 73,79 SV%, 2,7 GAA, 1 SO)
Both Farjestad BK and GHETTO FIREBIRDS can be found below the playoff line. FBK especially is expected to play better than that and needs to get their game going if they want to deliver on their promises of success. The Swedish team has experienced a great amount of player turnover and some growth should be seen as they grow together as a group. GHETTO on the other hand has been performing close to their expected level and as a club in their first Elite season, they shouldn't be feeling the pressure of having to make playoffs. Last night, they managed to snap their overtime curse and grab their first OT win against Lulea Hockey. Will GHETTO continue on their path of beating down on Swedish teams or can FBK turn the corner and start racking up some points?
