STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- Montreal's Jose Theodore stopped 27
shots, and Tampa Bay defenseman Dan Boyle assisted on the winning
goal Wednesday to lift their Swedish Elite League team into the

Djurgarden's 3-2 comeback victory in Game 7 of the quarterfinal
series against Timra. Djurgarden, Sweden's most storied hockey

Djurgarden was outplayed for long stretches, but Theodore made
several sparkling saves to keep his team in the game.
