Vålerenga secured themselves another game in the Get-Liga playoff finals against Stavanger Oilers today! Stavanger having a 3-1 lead in matches were playing for an overall win, but after almost 60 minutes of passionate hockey, a lot of penalties and discussions about dubious decisions made by the referees, the score-sheet still said 1-1.

Stavanger Oilers now lead the finals 3-2, and have a home advantage in the next match.
