Behind a stellar series from goalie Gustav Johansson, the Kenai River Brown Bears defeated the host Springfield (Ill.) Jr. Blues on Friday and Saturday in North American Hockey League action.
Johansson, who is from Sweden, had 34 saves in a 5-1 victory on Friday as the Bears won their first game of the season. Saturday, Johansson had 41 saves in a 2-0 victory.
"In my book, that warrants player of the week. He definitely will be nominated," Kenai River coach Oliver David said. "I don't see too many goalies, or players, having a better weekend than that."
