Last night I was again at Hovet photographing a Djurgården hockey game. This time they meet Västerås, who was only one point behind them in the table. After Monday’s display in Unpredictability, where Djurgården trailed 1-4 only to comeback and win after I switched sides in the third, I opted to stay put regardless of what instinct told me.
The evening played out much like a recurring theme. The visitors took the lead. Then extended their lead, this time with a smaller margin. Then like clockwork in the third period Djurgården finally scored. Then they go and tie the game. I’m standing there thinking this might just play out like it did on Monday with a victory on penalties.
The match goes into sudden death and I remain on Djurgårdens’ side trying not to repeat my mistake from Monday. But then the visitors go and do something unexpected and sneak in a third goal to clinch a huge victory and move into fourth place.
