It's currently all square in the game between panthers and stingrays, matt myers and kostadine exchanging a few words and blows

The player warm ups are nearly over, Warren Tait ices for the Bison who have 11 dressed skaters, unfortunatley no Voth or Cowmeadow for the Devils

It's a little cold in the rink tonight, with temperatures equivalent to those outside, at least the tent will keep the rain off your backs

Referee for tonight's game is Mr Matt Thompson

Keep your comments and predictions coming in to

Both sets of teams out of the ice, for which promises to be a very entertaining game of hockey

Reiter the star of the period, and looks like another awsome performance is on the cards. If the temperature in the rink gets any colder frostbite may set in

Carl from Carmarthen believes the Devils either next season or this season need to sign a clinical finisher as all the devils seem to do is pass the puck around. I agree carl if we had that finisher we could be leading the table

Lisa from Plymouth is supporting the devils tonight and hope they beat the Bison, Well done Lisa and welcome

Carl says that maybe a new coach could fire the devils up on the powerplay and get them playing the right way as there never seems to be anyone their for the deflections or tap ins. I agree Carl i agree

Both teams starting slower for the 2nd period a few saves by Aubry but no real chances. Something needs to happen to spark this game back into life
