Leksand of Sweden's HockeyAllsvenskan (second division) fell behind to BIK Karlskoga Wednesday 2-0 by the end of the second period. It was a meeting between two of the top clubs in the league this season and it ended with a three-goal third-period comeback for Leksand, including the game-winner coming with five seconds left from former NHLer Mattias Timander.
Kicking off the comeback was Filip Forsberg, the No. 11 overall selection by the Washington Capitals in June. The 18-year-old's seventh goal of the season came off a lovely toe drag around a Karlskoga defenseman. The goal was nice, but his celebration needs a little work:
It's wasn't quite as spectacular as New Jersey high schooler Taylor Cox or even Henrik Andersen, formerly of Leksand, but at least Forsberg was spared the embarrassment of actually crashing through the glass. The pane was quickly fixed and Leksand took over first place in the league with its win.
