Ullmark takes loss as MODO stumbles

Linus Ullmark stopped 35 of 40 shots Saturday as MODO was pounded by Vaxjo 5-0.

It's hard to fault the goaltender for the lopsided score, with MODO's loose defensive coverage near the paint (including one egregious giveaway) leading to some easy Vaxjo goals. Regardless of circumstances, Ullmark finds himself in an early season hole with a 1-4 record through five starts, while his 4.24 GAA and .861 save% represents perhaps his weakest five-game statistical stretch since entering SHL competition.

Gustav Possler led all forwards with seven shots on goal, while Victor Olofsson was bumped up to MODO's third line to play a season-high 14:18.

MODO will look to right the ship Thursday versus Djurgardens IF.
