19:19 Off-side, Kärpät 5 Atte Ohtamaa.

18:33 Färjestad 22 Per Åslund wanted to break to game, but Hostikka saved.

06:29 Kärpät 84 Michal Vondrka fooled all the Färjestad players and took the puck in front of Nilstorp, but could glide it in.

05:06 The attendance here in Kokkola is 1992. People are following the game that glides from one end to another. But now they started to ask for a goal from Kärpät.

04:13 Icing, by Kärpät 13 Oscar Eklund.

02:25 Färjestad 42 Joakim Hilding hit from close range, but Hostikka was there ... again.

16:32 Färjestad 30 Marcus Paulsson had to take a 2 minutes penalty for hooking after strong pressuse done by Kärpät.

16:06 There is a big hussle at the Färjestad goal. Kärpät 22 Miikka Salomäki, 71 Ivan Huml and 84 Michal Vondrka tryed to force the puck behind Nilstorp's back. Färjestad 71 Christian Berglund was actively assisting his goalie to prevent them.

13:26 Kärpät at full strength.

13:09 Färjestad 12 Marius Holter is now trying to fool Ville Hostikka ... but he is sure and cool.

06:41 Kärpät is taking face offs quite determinately.

05:09 Kärpät 49 Ville-Matti Koponen got a 10 minutes penalty for misconduct after a hussle close to Färjestad goal.

00:00 The second period is ready to start.

16:29 But still there is room for Kärpät 30 Joonas Komulainen to shoot the puck towards the goal.

13:28 Färjestad at full strength.

12:47 Face off was taken by Kärpät 71 Ivan Huml. But where is the power play?

11:52 Nice break for Kärpät hard attack by Färjestad 85 Mikael Johansson.
