Jokerit Helsinki 5 Dinamo Riga 2 (2-1, 1-1, 2-0)

Five is the magic number for Jokerit in this pre-season. The Finns played their fourth game of the summer and hit five goals for the fourth time. One day after beating Dinamo Riga 5-0, Jokerit followed up with a 5-2 verdict.

Henri Ikonen led the way with two of the goals, opening the scoring midway through the first period. Veli-Matti Savinainen was on target late in the first period to restore the home lead after summer signing Peter Tiivola tied it up for Riga. The Latvians equalized again at the start of the second through Sebastian Wannstrom, but John Norman made it 3-2 to Jokerit midway through the frame after good work from Teemu Turunen. Ikonen’s second of the night took it away from Dinamo, and Julius Junttila wrapped it up late on.
