Jesper Fasth was forced to leave the game in the second period of game four at Cloetta Center. He was done playing for the night, and it is still unclear if it will play in Thursday evening's must-win game in Kinnarps Arena. What Jnytt experience Fasth has struck up a knee injury.

- He is currently being explored. We'll see tomorrow if he can play, it is determined after the warming, says Ulf Dahlen after Wednesday morning's optional workout.
Fasth has formed chain with Jason Krog and Rhett Rakhshani, a formation that has been the HV71's best so far in the playoffs. The last match was Fasths place of Johan Lindström.

- If Jesper does not play someone else take his place. Someone else get a chance to step up, says Dahlen.
This is great news. Obviously the translation make it difficult for us English-speakers to get an exact read, but the highlighted section makes me think that he's going to test it out in warmups (the "warming") and see if he can go. The same sort of thing we hear over here when guys have day-to-day bruises, strains and the like. Very, very encouraging.
