The first and second in the series are facing each other in Tampere’s Nokia Arena.
Lynx is playing a very strong autumn in the hockey league. After two sets, the team leads Kärpp 2–0 in a genuine battle for the top, where the first and second in the series meet.
A bit of luck came to the rescue when Ilves scored two goals in the second period. Tommi Tikka scooped the opening shot from his knuckle, where the puck rolled just over the goal line.
Matias Mäntykive Ilves’ second goal was scored in 35:06. Mantykivi tried to pass in front of the goal, but the puck sank into the goal of Kärppie’s golden helmet Teemu Turunen from the racket.
Kärpät got his chances in the first two sets, but even the good shots ended up by Marek Langhamer laps or mattresses.
