Rögle chases Örebro
Örebro has been above the qualifications all the time – but lately it has been tough and the teams from below have come closer and closer. Right now, it only marks a single point down to Rögle in the eleventh place – albeit with a match less played. Yet. Örebro feels chased and should look up.
Rögle, who won on Thursday night when Brynäs attended Lindab Arena has been strong at home lately and the fact is that he has won the last five out of six home matches. Next, just waiting for Örebro and these are the games you have to win if you want to stay in SHL without having to qualify. Historically, Rögle has made it very easy for Örebro and you have actually won the six of the last seven meetings between the teams.
There is a mental takeover on Örebro in the course of peoples statistics, but also that it is Ängelholmenna Jagar and Örebro who feel chasing. Just feeling chased often leads to great pressure and I think the Örebro players are a little nervous about coming down to Ängelholm, where it has been very tough in recent seasons.
Örebro is out of battle – when is the coach kicked?
Örebro also comes from a very heavy loss, after easy match by 3-1 after 6 minutes into the second period against Malmö Redhawks, the drop was lost and lost after punishment. Örebro currently has six straight losses – and it will not be long before Niklas Sundblad’s (main coach) days are counted.
Something that has been significant for Örebro’s recent matches is the defensive, which was so good at the start of the season. The last six games have released 27 (!) Goals, which is a score of 4.5 goals / match and of course it does not matter if you want to win hockey matches. Even goalkeeper Eero Kilpeläinen, who was really good at the start of SHL has lost and is not at all the great goalkeeper he is expected to be. The loss in Malmö Arena on Thursday means that Örebro only won four out of 21 away matches this season.
Our Prediction: Rögle BK win @ 1.60
