Welcome back to your game previews. Just a couple of games to keep us going before the next weekend of action. There’s one game tomorrow night, Tuesday, and one more on the Wednesday. Both games look interesting encounters, so let’s look ahead to them right now.
The latest round of fixtures in the 2018-19 season conclude on Sunday with more games in the Challenge Cup and Elite League. It’s safe to say that the season is well underway now. So who’s playing who on Sunday? Here’s your guide to the games themselves.
It’s the second full weekend of action in the new 2018-19 season, and once more it’s a full programme on the Saturday. Well for the pedantic ones out there, it’s as full a programme as we can have with one team without a game. Four matches in the Challenge Cup, spread across all three groups, and a classic encounter in the Elite League itself. It promises to be a cracker. Let’s look ahead to those games.
Whilst the Flames will have to sit out of any action on Saturday night, the game at the Spectrum on Sunday marks the first of 4 games over an 8 day period. It also marks the first league game of the season for the Flames, and sees the return of the Sheffield Steelers, who very much made their mark against the Surrey side last season.
Just the single game on Friday night, and it’s in the Challenge Cup qualifying stages. Belfast Giants host the Dundee Stars in the SSE Arena, and many people think that they will make it three wins out of three. Let’s look ahead to it.
On April 6th 2018, the hockey world was stunned by the tragedy that unfolded at the intersections of Highways 35 and 335 in Saskatchewan, Canada.
A semi-truck collided into a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos hockey team of the SJHL, who were on their way to a playoff game against the Nipawin Hawks in a must win game five, with the junior hockey team trailing 3 – 1 in their series.
Sixteen of those on board the bus tragically are no longer with us.
Just the one midweek game in the Elite League, and it takes place at the Fly DSA Arena when the Sheffield Steelers take on the Fife Flyers. Games between these two protagonists are always interesting, and this should be no exception. Let’s look ahead to it.
