I pen this week’s article on the Monday morning after an incredible weekend of games for the Steelers against the Belfast Giants. It was a weekend that was memorable for numerous reasons, some good and some bad, but the main consensus for us all at the final buzzer, we get to do this all again next month in the Northern Irish capital. The quirks of the fixture list.
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.
