The game was a thriller even though the scoreline would suggest something else. Jokipojat started strong scoring twice in the first period. Kiekko-Vantaa was stronger in the second period after beating couple penalty kills in the beginning of the period. Kiekko-Vantaa scored in powerplay evening the scales. However they were robbed by the game official when Jokipojat scored after the puck had been out of bounce in the end of the 2nd period. How none of the four official noticed the situation leading to the goal is beyond comprehension. The 4-1 goal was made by last seasons salmon hero Nico Friman in the third period sealing the deal for Jokipojat.

Kiekko-Vantaa is now on a heroic winning streak when Jukurit went down in front of over 1000 spectators in Trio Areena. Toni Leinonen gave the salmons of Vantaa again an early lead. Kiekko-Vantaa seemed to be in control when all of a sudden Jukurit tied the game with something that seemed like a pass in front of the goal. That did not stop the home team from winning the second period and scoring two goals by Jere Laine and Lasse Uusivirta, one goal each. The third period started with a Kiekko-Vantaa penalty from the second period and Jukurit managed to utilize this by scoring a power play goal. Short after this Jukurit shocked the crowd by equalizing the game, after a sudden breakaway and a beautiful finish by Teemu Turunen. The game went on overtime and was settled in 37 seconds by Nico Friman who has been in a spectacular form thru the entire season.

The all deciding encounter at game 7 of the playoff series will be played today in Mikkeli.
