In an incredibly exciting start to the last week of the ECL 10 Elite regular season, we'll get to see some intense top tier virtual hockey as JYP Jyvaskyla takes on Linkoping HC in a brawl for the top playoff seeds. In the second game of the night, Farjestad BK and Lulea Hockey meet for the rivalry between Swedish organisations in the top division.

JYP and Linkoping meet in a battle that plays a massive role in determining how the top 3 of the regular season turns out. Both of these squads have been on impressive runs as of late and show no signs of stopping. League-leading scorer Paul @PleeMaker Arontie has surpassed his own all-time goal-scoring record, whereas Oskari @sibeelius Grönroos is two shutouts away from surpassing Hannes @Hansulinho Kettunen for most shutouts in a regular season. Either way, this is a battle your'e not going to want to miss. It's been about record-setting all season and this night is no exception, let's go!
Farjestad BK vs Lulea Hockey

Christoffer @I-Maise-I Berntsson (9+33=42) vs Ville @hpkfani Luukkonen (13+12+25)
Johan @Rundqviiist Rundqvist (10 W, 76,45 SV%, 3,04 GAA, 0 SO) vs Ville @Supreex Korhonen (7 W, 76,83 SV%, 2,5 GAA, 4 SO)
In the second matchup of the night, our two Elite division Swedish hockey clubs will clash for bragging rights. Both teams have slightly underperformed and are in dire need for some wins if they are looking for postseason action. Playoffs are in hand for both teams and a double win tonight will drastically change the trajectory for either one of the clubs. It is notable that Lulea is the lowest scoring team in the division, but FBK on the other hand have a higher GAA, which might mean there will be some chances opening up both ways.
Tune in for all the action starting tonight at 20:00 CEST over at www.twitch.tv/nhlgamer, alternatively ISTV, and Ruutu for our Finnish viewers.
