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 next round of the playoffs.

Boyle set up a goal by Marcus Kristoffersson that capped Djurgarden's 3-2 comeback victory in Game 7 of the quarterfinal series against Timra. Djurgarden, Sweden's most storied hockey team, has never lost a deciding seventh game.

Nils Ekman, San Jose's second-leading scorer last season with 55 points, had a goal and an assist to rally Djurgarden from an early 2-0 deficit.

Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings scored both goals for Timra in the first period.

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