EBR Game Of The Week is finally here. I mentioned it on Chiclets Tuesday to ensure everyone had plenty of time to get their action in on the Barstool Sportsbook.
Swedish hockey players are always well known for their defensive game when they come over to the NHL so it seems strange to take an over in the SHL but here we are. This game screams over because there are so many weapons on each side.
Ryan Lasch - 66 points in 58 games for Frölunda in SHL
Jere Innala - 48 points in 54 games for Helsinki in SM-Liiga
Anthony Grecco - 59 points in 66 games for Hartford in AHL
If these three guys weren't enough to get you excited about this team, they also have Henrik Lundqvist's twin brother Joel as a very dangerous center.
Dahlén - 22 points in 61 games for San Jose in the NHL
Lander - 31 points in 42 games for Zug in Swiss NLA
Pettersson - 24 points in 42 games for Spartak Moscow in KHL
These guys will all be top point guys this year in the SHL and you know they all want to have a great start to the season in the first game. Early on in any hockey league you will find that the penalty kill units and just overall team defense are not at their peak.
When I gave out this pick I never imagined I would be on a 11-1 streak (after an easy overnight win in Asia) going into it, but we are here, so lets make it 12 EBR!!
