This weekend sees the Coventry Blaze and Sheffield Steelers face off in two consecutive games. On Saturday in Sheffield and Sunday in Coventry at the Skydome.
With Coventry coming off a loss to the Belfast Giants, they have everything to prove against their conference rivals. With Cale Tanaka’s suspension being reduced from 3 games to just 1, it might appear that the Blaze are onto a winner with Tanaka rejoining his line mates for the game on Saturday.
Second place Steelers are looking to continue in their winning ways. Even with goaltender Marek Pinc sidelined for the foreseeable future with an injury sustained in Cardiff. Brad Day has proved himself as a more than capable replacement and it appears the team has a lot of faith in him moving into this weekends double header. They’ll also be attempting to fend of current third place team Braehead Clan, who could go ahead of them if they are successful against the Fife Flyers tonight in Braehead.
I’ll be at the game on Sunday and will give be writing my own review on the weekend’s action. This weekend is shaping up to be a fantastic one for the Elite League and I for one cannot wait!
Also coming up, a new instalment in the “two minutes with…” series!
