"Look at the Video highlights game in which fell seven wickets. Pardubice beat HC MOUNTFIELD 5:2 and hockey fans as the Budvar Arena saw great performances. After the end of the match to extra together with domestic champions to celebrate the joy of winning."
Ex-Nashville, current Tampa Bay goalie Anders Lindbäck, was interviewed after yesterday's first game in Ilves jersey. Ilves lost 3 -2 in OT and Lindbäck made 38/41 saves. In his interview he said that one of the main reasons he wanted to play in SM-liiga was that SM-liiga is the most NHL-like in Europe in terms of style of play. The game is much more straightforward and faster than in the Swedish Elitserien. At least according to Lindbäck.
Maybe this is one of the reasons Karlsson chose SM-liiga over Elitserien? Or then it's just because of Jarkko Ruutu.
