Thursday I was at Hovet photographing a match between Djurgården and Karlskrona. This was the 2nd to last match of the season and seemingly the pieces have fallen into place. Djurgården are sitting in 5th place with 92 points. Three points behind 3rd place Västerås.
The most likely scenario for Djurgården is to go into a playoff with the teams currently ranked fourth to seventh in HockeyAllsvenskan. The winner of these playoffs joining teams ranked 1-3 in meeting the last two teams from Elitserien in another playoff. The first and second placed teams at the end of this playoff are promoted into Elitserien and the remainder go on play in HockeyAllsvenskan next season.
