Hämeenlinna ball track challenge reigning champion Oulun Kärpät back in the running in the SM-league finals series.

, 44, coached Kärpät in the Finnish championships a year ago. the Antti Pennanen , 40, the applicant HPK:n at the helm of his career in the first league gold.

Both are, of course, a top coach, but as a person they are different. Both are demanding, but each in their own way, Lions head coach Jukka Jalonen shed some light.

Maybe Pennanen is a more traditional coach, the prototype and the Mainland then again, a little different from the young, if that can be said. He is maybe a little closer to the players and their more joking with the players than an average coach. However, because their own skill is a players valuation you deserve, Jalonen describes.

the Right hockey guys also HPK's head coach Antti Pennanen has reached close to the Canada cup. If he elevates it in the air? Mauri Ratilainen/AOP

Jalonen work HPK's head coach in 2001 and 2007, when the häme castle came into the championship in 2006 as well as four bronze, and feel Pennanen already from those days.

He was at that time a junior side, when I was a varsity level, Jalonen to remember.

for the Period 2015-16 Jalonen raise then Jukureita mestizo in coach probably Pennanen Young Lions coaching team. Home games in winning the championship in the aftermath of the Michieli praised profusely Pennanen and said he believes that tough traces the birth, when this was moving into the following period from HPK's head coach.

– yes, I Know what it is about and what kind of coach is the issue, when Pennanen Club then went to and what he is there for three years, received early. That is not a surprise.

– Likewise, when the Manner I learned to feel and I've seen what he was doing, so I know that both are the last on the hockey guys. They want to do everything possible to ensure that would learn a little more every day and would get your team to play at the top level. What finer than that of the with friends working together, Jalonen says.

the Mainland to work Lions coach already the previous head coach Lauri Marjamäki during. Pennanen joined the group Jalonen, the current head coach job at the start of last may.

Pennasella is also the first season starts after the initial two-year contract less than 20 years of national team head coach role for a year 2020-2022. Next season the Young Lions coach Raimo Helminen .


the Mainland and Pennanen are Jalonen, according to both trainers innovative. They do not do so as it has always done but the idea was also new and developing methods.

Both are in some certain matters a notch better, Jalonen said, without wanting to, however, focus vision.

yes, that entity certainly goes like one to one.

Perhaps the clues can get it, what are men's roles and priorities Lions coach. Pennanen job description is defense-oriented, and he fielded the kit and outnumbered. Continental, in turn, is working with the strikers and the dominance of the game.

Both want to win, but also respect the opponent and the game. I believe that there will be quite a staggering finale. Tight torque you will like for sure.

style of play the difference between lions head coach Jukka Jalonen to usher in flat finals series. Kimmo Brandt / AOP

to the casual viewer, the Weasels and HPK's style of play, you may appear largely similar, as both aim at active and action packed hockey. The game in the way it is, however, clear differences.

they Have some, Jalonen to fix.

– the Defence is not necessarily so much, but the attacking is somewhat. Club attack I think more rigorously and more systematically than Weasels, which is to attack the game more organic, creativity and variation. Sometimes it is a strength and sometimes it can produce problems on his own team.

the Club is a little more systematic and Weasels in their own way a little more unpredictable, Jalonen defines.

Smooth design

the regular season number one and already the ninth championship goal of tempting new brunswick is generally considered a shoo-in, but Jalonen sees the fixture very smooth.

the Weasel cleared his first two opponents their own difficult, even not easily reached. The last game Hifkiä against seemed, that the team began to be again at your top level. The club in turn has pulled the two series for the very something like a single game with the exception.

– of Course, the Club is very hungry. Weasels again has won a lot lately, and there is the experience of winning in this type of situation clearly more than a Club. In that sense, a slight advantage might Oulu, boys be, but maybe then again that kind of zeal and enthusiasm is a bit more of the Club side, Jalonen contemplating.

Yes, those margins are small. I wouldn't go on a lot I bet to this point. It is infinitely difficult to predict anything other than that will become very smooth and good quality kit.
