- Skellefteå's Oscar Möller ended the game with 2 goals and an assist
- Skellefteå stay in second place in Group E and have a 2 point advantage over third-placed SC Bern
- Vincent Kara scored Grenoble's only goal on the night
Skellefteå AIK stay in second place in Group E thanks to the three points they bring home from France and with a 2 point advantage over third-placed Bern, they stand a very good chance of advancing to the Playoffs, whilst on the other hand Grenoble would realistically have to win both of their next two games to make it through instead of Skellefteå.
The game started very cautiously on both sides, as both teams tested each other out and held the puck for lengthy periods – both teams had only 9 shots on target throughout the first period combined! The nearly 3000 fans who gathered in the Patinoire Pole Sud had to wait 19 minutes before Skellefteå’s Oscar Möller found the back of the net and got the game going.
After both teams returned back to the ice for the second period, the fans were once again offered long periods of tactical build up play, but this time with many more shots on goal. Grenoble weren’t happy with being second best in the match and weren’t afraid of going forward and shooting. Unluckily for them, it was Skellefteå who were able to double their lead thanks to Linus Lindström's nicely aimed shot. 3 minutes later, Grenoble were offered a chance to get back into the game thanks to a powerplay, but they just couldn’t get a shot past Oskar Östlund. With 5 seconds of the second period remaining, Vincent Kara was able to finally break the netting and get one past and both teams left the ice with the score sitting at 2-1 for Skellefteå.
Grenoble were gearing up for a third period comeback, but disaster struck just 19 seconds after they stepped back onto the ice. Joakim Lindström added Skellefteå’s third and ended Grenoble’s hopes of tying the game. Despite having two powerplays, the score stuck and with time running out Grenoble played high up the ice. They launched a late offensive and peppered Skellefteå’s net with shot after shot. They were even awarded a powerplay and with goalie Lukáš Horák out of the net they had a two-man advantage and one and a half minutes to change their fortunes. Sadly though, Skellefteå were able to score just seconds into Grenoble's powerplay from Oscar Möller's shot that glided across the ice into Grenoble's empty net.
