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.

since we’ve no place to go…
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

How about no?? Give us hockey right??

Sheffield Steelers | Unlucky in the Crease

The track history for the Sheffield Steelers net-minders hasn’t been the best in the last 12 months, from Frank Doyle’s injury and subsequent retirement to the most recent injury sustained by leading goalie Marek Pinc. It seems that the Steel City side are not likely to retain a starting goalie for an entire season.
