AIK won the ice hockey derby against Djurgården in Ericsson Globe Arena yesterday. Djurgården scored the first goal but when AIK equalized in power play in the second period they turned the events and eventually won the match with 4-1. AIK now has a good chance to reach the play offs, which mean they need to be among the top eight teams in the league (Elitserien). Djurgården faces the risk of relegation. The two last teams will play in a qualification serie with four teams from the second league (Allsvenskan) in order to stay up. You find the table here.
This derby was also special because many supporters boycotted the match. Due to what many supporters perceived as unmotivated police violence against supporters during the last derby in January, the official supporter clubs for both teams had called for a boycott. Thus, the atmosphere was very different, calmer and much more quiet, than during most Stockholm derby matches.
