Florida Panthers forward Jack Skille (picture above in action from last season) tallied two power play goals to erase a 3-1 deficit but Frisk Asker would claim the victory in overtime during Thursday action from Norway’s GET-ligaen. Skille finished the game with six shots on goal, an even rating and was called for tripping late in the first period.
Frisk Asker would jump out to an early 2-0 lead on goals from Thomas Valkvæ Olsen and Craig Schira. Ian McDonald would score his league-leading 15th goal while on the power play at the 14:22 mark of the first period to pull Rosenborg IHK Elite within one. Frisk Asker would score again before the end of the stanza with the even strength goal going to Magnus Lindahl.
Skille would notch his first goal at 6:13 of the second period. The goal was set up by Deryk Engelland and Lou Dickenson. In the third period, Skille would tie the contest by beating Nicklas Dahlberg with the assists going to Lou Dickenson and Ryan Martinelli. Rosenborg fired 20 shots at Dahlberg over the final two periods but only Skille could solve the Frisk Asker goaltender.
In overtime, Craig Schira would get the winner at the 2:27 mark, converting a feed from Thomas Valkvæ Olsen to send the crowd of 982 fans home happy.
Rosenborg IHK Elite picked up one point in the standings with the overtime loss and moved into an 8th place tie with Stjernen.
Jack Skille now has four points (2G/2A) in four games with Rosenborg.
