Post Game with Thompson & Desbiens

So the game didn’t quite go our way… It’s been the best performance by the Steelers against the Blaze all season. I mean, I know I wasn’t the only one sat in the away end hoping for a small reprieve. If only, for one more goal from the Steelers. The men who made us proud to wear our jerseys.

EIHL | So Close! Blaze’s Stewart denies Sheffield yet again.

It started out as just another game, a clean slate after last weekends 4 point loss to the Blaze. The Steelers came out of the blocks looking a little… Loose? Bear with me here, this isn’t by any means a post to tell the world I’ve jumped ship. Far from it in fact.

Pre game: Steelers v Blaze

Me, my sister Elana and my little shorty (that’s Sophia, she’s nearly 3 and Scorch’s biggest fan girl) are heading up to the Skydome in Coventry for the 4th collision between the Steelers and Blaze this year. 

Here’s hoping we don’t see them lose again, since the Blaze seem to have our damn number… (Who handed that over??) and so far the boys in Orange just don’t seem to be able to extinguish the fire. Ever the optimist that I am, I don’t know that the Steelers will lose every single game to the Blaze. 

With the new addition to the Coventry side in the form of ex-Braehead Clan player Chris Bruton and with Guillaume Desbiens returning to the Steelers with a strong showing last night in Sheffield, I continue to have faith that the Steel City will come out victorious.

Come say hi! We don’t bite, we’re sat in the away end amongst the Orange Army.

Zack Fitzgerald | Post Game & The Changing Face of the Enforcer

Following the game last night at the Coventry Skydome, I managed to catch up with Sheffield Steelers enforcer and all round great guy, Zack Fitzgerald for a quick chat before they headed off home.

Steelers v Blaze | Double Date Weekend

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!

Product Review | 1936 The Golden Era T-shirt from Fiveon3

Item: 1936 The Golden Era T-shirt

Make: Fiveon3 Ice Hockey Apparel

Price: £15.00

Sizes available: S 35-37″ M 38-40″ L 41-43″ XL 44-46 2XL 47-49″

Fabric: 100% Cotton

This product is really easy to wash on a 30 degree cycle and it’s best to also tumble dry inside out on a cool setting to best preserve the design on the front of the shirt. For best results remove from the tumble straight away and hang up to allow creases to drop out. If you need to iron do it very gently and inside out, avoid the front design of possible.

I almost never iron my t-shirts and following the instructions above means ironing won’t really be necessary which will help in the longevity of your garment.

FiveOn3 pride themselves on being for every member of the hockey family and provide clothing suitable for everyone from the elite player to the smallest of fans. The garment is comfortable and easy to wear and can quite easily be dressed up or down as the situation requires. I absolutely love the vintage feel of this t-shirt and I own many other baseball style shirts with different designs on the front because I love the style of them that much.  It’s a truly universal garment and looks great on anyone who wears it. I love to wear both comfortable and practical clothing and this t-shirt fits that bill wonderfully. Allowing me to be comfy and still look good.
