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.
