Mike Stobe

Florida forward collects assist and nets shootout goal in a 5-4 win over Stjernen.

Florida Panthers forward Jack Skille picked up his second point but struggled for Rosenborg IHK Elite in Tuesday action from Norway's GET-ligaen. Skille finished with a -3 rating while firing two shots on goal during the home win played in front of a crowd of 2,038 fans. On the plus side, in addition to the assist, Skille did convert in the opening round of the shootout. Stjernen’s Aleksandrs Macijevskis opened the scoring for the visitors at the 9:39 mark of the first period. Ian McDonald would strike on a late Rosenborg power play to send the teams to the dressing room tied at one. In the second period, McDonald and Skille would combine to set up a Lou Dickenson power play goal as Rosenborg grabbed a 2-1 advantage. Joakim Erbe extended the lead to 3-1 with an even strength goal at 14:25 of the second period. Göran Hermansson would bring Stjerenen within a goal by notching a five on three tally just over a minute into the third period. Five minutes later the game was tied again as Stjernen’s Robin Syversen Olsen beat Simon Nordh. Ian McDonald would score his goal on the power play to give Rosenborg a 4-3 lead with just under ten minutes remaining in the game. Stjernen would not go quietly as Lars Erik Hesbråten scored a late goal to send the game to extra time. After a scoreless five minute overtime period, the game would head to the shootout. The teams traded goals in the opening round with Skille scoring for Rosenborg and Kevin McNamara replying for Stjernen. Ian McDonald converted in the second round and after Nordh stopped Gustaf Thorell, Lou Dickenson scored to complete the win for Rosenborg. Nordh turned aside 50 of 54 shots during the exciting contest while Stjernen’s Pål Grotnes made 39 saves for the losers. The win left Rosenborg all alone in ninth place in the GET-ligaen standings, one point behind Stjernen for the safety of the eight spot. After three games, Skille has 0G/2A and -3 rating with 12 PIM.
