Game day... and just under five hours until the puck drops!
This Champions Hockey League Final between Karpat Oulu and Frolunda Gothenburg pits two of Europe's best club teams against each other – two teams currently involved in neck-and-neck races for first place in continental Europe's top two national leagues. The game pits two teams that have been to the title game and come very close to winning Europe's club hockey championship before, but never been the last team standing in the end. It's also a re-match of last year's CHL Semi-Final, which Frolunda won in overtime after the teams were tied on aggregate following two full hockey games.
