this finals had been presented to the sixth national finals has been the home team's triumph.
All five of the played finals played had been won by the home team, but in the face of a crowded Globe could not Djurgården take the important third hemmasegraren who had secured a seventh and decisive SM-final.
was Joel Lundqvist, who on Thursday evening had to lift the CHAMPIONSHIP trophy felt symbolic in many ways.
the 37-year-old Joel Lundqvist to live up to the epithet ”Kaptenernas captain”.
the way he controls his team both on the ice as in the locker room, he makes Frölunda to a difficult team to beat.
considering all that Joel Lundqvist has experienced as a hockey player, including three world CHAMPIONSHIP gold medals, it is admirable how he continues to have the same guldhunger season after season.
Equally admirable is that he still has a drive to become better.
Last season, he was not satisfied with his game. Then he decided to do something about it.
Among other things, he worked during the summer practice starts hard with his skating, which has never been one of his strengths, and it has yielded results this season.
celebrates the individual players in Frölunda, of course, it is also appropriate to highlight the poängkungen Ryan Lasch.
at irregular intervals may Lasch's criticism that he is not a slutspelslirare. Let us say that the criticism this time landed a bit wrong.
If we zoom out from the individuals to the group has Frölundas powerplay has been a winning concept .
Or if you want to reverse it, a New wretched penalty killing has made it easy for Frölunda to play well in the numerically superior position.
the First penalty killing has been a recurrent topic during this finals, and the numbers speak a clear language.
Somewhere there must eventually have been a mental block for many of the Club players this bad in match after match, it may not look like.
saw the finals out to be a målvaktskamp. The first Adam Reideborn and Frölundas Johan Mattsson had both a big part of their team was in the final.
When we now sum up the finals, we can conclude that neither the Reideborn or any of Frölundas two goalies (injured Matthews was replaced by Johan Gustavsson) came out in that famous zone.
None of the finalmålvakterna did any plattmatch, but none of them got a real winner.
Thursday night, it was of course difficult for djurgårdarna to find any consolation in that the club made their best season in nine years, but with a certain distance should give themselves a pat on the shoulder.
in Addition to the major weaknesses in the penalty kill also destroyed damage to the key players of the Club opportunities to play home the gold medal.
the Captain of the team Jacob Josefson, who is as important to his team as Joel Lundqvist is for Frölunda, has been struggling with injuries for large parts of the game.
In the sixth final, he was not on the ice.
Avoid Jacob Josefson to injuries in next year's SM-slutspel it can be he who may raise the CHAMPIONSHIP trophy then.
