After the overtime period Färjestad won the shootout on a goal by Victor Ejdsell.

IK Oskarshamn - Timrå IK 5 - 4 (2-2, 3-1, 0-1)

Oskarshamn got a horrible start against the newly promoted Timrå and allowed two early goals. Two goals each by Patrik Karlkvist and Tomas Zohorna and a winner by Fredrik Olofsson was however enough for a home win in Be-Ge Hockey Center.
