Andreas Johnson and the rest of his Frölunda team have been looking a little sluggish in their last few games. It's tough at the top, where the challenge facing the team for the last few weeks of the regular season is to stay up there.
They had slipped to second place, but their 3-2 win today, coupled with Skellefteå's loss, put them back in first place.
Johnson's first assist came on the power play, and he was hanging in his usual spot, got the puck on the net and stepped back while his mates put it in.

His second was and even strength play where he skated the puck unopposed into the slot and got things rolling with a good pass.
After today's action, Johnson had moved up to fifth in points and third in goals, one back of Joel Lundqvist.
