Djurgardens 5, Frolunda 3 (Lundvqvist)
The NHL lockout is providing Henrik Lundqvist with a good idea of the talent that he will be facing when he journeys across the Atlantic to the NHL. Last night, Lundqvist and his Frolunda mates couldn't solve one of the NHL's best backstops in Marty Turco, as they fell to Djurgardens, 5-3. The Dallas Stars netminder, who just recently joined Djurgardens, made 36 stops on 37 shots for the win. Lundqvist suffered just his fourth loss in 24 outings, allowing five goals on 36 shots. Lunqvist now ranks third in the Swedish Elite League with a 1.91 goals against average, but still leads the league in save percentage (.931), wins (17), and minutes played (1446:52). The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Frolunda goaltender.

TPS (Korpikoski) 3, Ilves 4 - OT
TPS only had to stop one man on Thursday night, but unfortunately for them, that man was Atlanta Thrashers forward Patrik Stefan. The former first overall selection of the Thrashers is playing for Ilves and stung TPC for three goals, including the OT-winner, and an assist in his team's 4-3 victory. Lauri Korpikoski did not figure in the scoring for TPS. He has two assists and eight penalty minutes in 21 contests this season.

TEAM WHL 5, TEAM RUSSIA 2
TEAM WHL'S POWER PLAY SENDS RUSSIANS PACKING WITH LOSS
A deadly WHL power play was, again, too much for the Russian Selects as Team WHL skated to a 5-2 win in the final game of the ADT Canada-Russia challenge. The six-game series between the the CHL All-Star and the Russian Selects was dominated by the CHL, as they won 4 of the six contests. Rangers prospect Nigel Dawes was not in the lineup for Team WHL last night.
