"JÖNKÖPNG. HV71's captain Martin Thörnberg is on the ice, but does not play the seventh and decisive quarter final against Färjestad."
"But he thinks he is back in a CHAMPIONSHIP semi-final."
"– Yes, I expect if we play that last. I thought we owned the match, " he says."
"Martin Thörnberg rested in this meeting, then he is aware of an injury in the upper body."
"And he choose to give up the match seven in Karlstad."
"He expects the cold to HV71 wins even without him."
" I had been able to play if it had been life or death, but it is still a bit hesitant out there on the ice. I noticed it in the two matches I played after having received the latest blast. Then there are guys who can do it better right now and now and I can heal a few more days. I think there will be more matches to come."
"Martin Thörnberg saw the recent segermatchen in the Monday, then HV71 forced a completely decisive game seven against seriesegrarna Färjestad after the victory 5-3"
"”They get a few cheap goals”"
"And he was impressed."
"– Yes, we own the match, they get a few cheap goals which gives them the air all the time. But we put our presspel as we want to, so they will find it tough. I also think that their slopes start to look worn out, in any case, when you see it from the side. It is a part that is played a lot and played physical and tough in the beginning. They just don't look to really be able to keep up the game."
"So you believe in a bang?"
"– Um, for us it is no knock if we would win. We played evenly with them during the series. Now finished the good, while we lost quite a lot of matches with uddamålet in the end. We had finished a little stronger had we been able to be up there instead. I don't think they see us as something åttondelag either."
"HV71 trained lightly on Tuesday, and very few players were on the ice."
"They won the first two bortamatcherna in Löfbergs lila Arena, before Färjestad managed to break the hemmaförbannelsen in Saturday's maratonmatch when they won in sudden in the sixth period (4-3)."
"A curse remains to break."
"the Team that took the lead in the six previous meetings have lost the match."
