Jokerit Helsinki 4
Medvescak Zagreb 1
Jokerit wrapped up its home calendar for 2015 with a comfortable victory over Medvescak.
Juhamatti Aaltonen opened the scoring early on and from that point on the visitor was always chasing the game. Despite Medvescak out-shooting Jokerit, though, goalie Henrik Karlsson was able to keep the Croatians at arm’s length.
Jokerit doubled its lead late in the second thanks to Jani Rita’s neat spin-o-rama finish. Patrick Bjorkstrand did get one back for Medvescak in the 39 minute but there was to be no revival. The third period saw Jere Sallinen add a goal to his two assists before Topi Jaakola scored into an empty net to complete the scoring.
