There is a new royalty in Vantaa. All hail His Majesty The King Mäkinen
Kiekko-Vantaa travelled to Turku after the El Marathonico. The game in Turku started at 3 pm, only half a day after the previous encounter in Vantaa ended. No doubt the players felt this in their legs but this could not be seen on the ice. TUTO started stronger taking the lead in the second period by an overtime goal by Joonas Toivanen. A couple of minutes later Atte Mäkinen decided to shock the home crowd by equalizing the game after assists from Andersson and Harjama. This dynamic trio capitalized the second time half way thru the game when Atte Mäkinen scored the game winning goal assisted again by Andersson and Harjama.
