Before the SHL meeting with Djurgården, the news came that Johan Olofsson signed up for another two seasons in the Malmö jersey. The forward celebrated with setting the first goal of the match. After a good away pressure, the back got Tobias Ekberg hold the puck and then Olofsson had already gone off against the Djurgård goal. On an offensive blue line, he received Ekberg's lyra and was able to free up with Robin Jensen 1–0 barely eight minutes into the second period.
– It was a tight match and we were very excited to do this when we have so many players away, says Arvikafödde Olofsson, who came to Malmö from Leksand for the 2016–2017 season.
Despite being Malmö had Emil Sylvegård (ready-to-play next round), Henrik Hetta (a match left) and Fredrik Händemark (two) turned off, the skiers for a long time the clearly better team.
– Somewhere I think Malmö is better. We have a good period a few minutes in others, but we do not get it right today, says Djurgårdstränaren Robert Ohlsson.
It was Johan Olofsson who showed the way with his 1-0 goal just under eight minutes into the second period. After a good away pressure, the back got Tobias Ekberg hold the puck and then Olofsson had already gone off against the Djurgård goal. On an offensive blue line, he received Ekberg's lyra and was able to free up with Robin Jensen 1–0 barely eight minutes into the second period.
– I have told the slopes: “If you have control, you get fucked up so I pull in the middle, so maybe you can send a hard long and I try to solve it with a dismantling.” Ekberg does a great job there, Johan says Olofsson after his eighth goal for the season.
Before the period break got SHL's shooting team Emil Bemström a freelance to be donated when Malmö passed away in a prey and free with Alsenfelt sent the 19-year-old into his 16th goal for the season. Frederik Storm then replied for 2–1 early in the final period – a ruling that went to the goal via the post and Jensen's leg protection – before Olofsson once again signed up for the point record. The skåne came two against one and with a just pass, the 24-year-old served the puck to Lars Bryggman, who sent in 1-3 with a direct shot.
– I was pretty tired when the attack came and at the last minute I felt I could make a pass. Bryggman takes in the great and fresh ones right away, says Johan Olofsson.
Already on Thursday there will be a chance for revenge for Djurgården. Then the law meets at Hovet in Stockholm.
