Match Night Live
Cardiff Devils 1 - 2 Belfast Giants

Welcome to MNL as the Devils try and seal a productive weekend and bank another 2 points.

Lets hope that there is enough gas left in the tank after last night since we are short benched again

Carl calls it 4-1 to the Devils with goals from Hill, Latulippe, Silverthorn and Prpich

See me your predictions to

Sorry that should have said

Carl prediction was 4-2 not 4-1, that the problem with watch three screens at the sametime. Promise I will concentrate as we approach game time.

At least we will not have Darnell in charge tonight, he's at Manchester

Not heard a peep out of my texters yet, I hope they have not decided to stay at home in the warmth

GAME DELAYED Belfast team's plane landed late

Don't know anymore details

Devils on ice so I presume Belfast have arrived

Giants take to the ice with 13 minutes of warm up left

It looks like a 6:15 start

Good Evening to Keith in "sunny" Aberystwyth

Devils missing Fulton, Campbell and Hartwick as expected

Not a very big crowd at the Tent tonight and no Giants fans it would appear, though they are probably keeping warm somewhere.

No referee so far, maybe we are going to have a ref-free game

Smith in Coventry, Coenen in Hull so we have Boniface or Hicks I presume

Warm up has finished

Apparently there was no sign of Stevie Lyle during warmup just Nathan Craze

Face Off now timetabled for 6:30

Welcome to Tom and Paul in NI

Still no clue to where Stevie Lyle is/was

Crowd of around 1,300

Lyle on team list, maybe he didn't want to warm up

Giants fans are asking what the link is the the BBC coverage if there is any tonight, e-mail me if you know

No Andrew Martin for the Giants

Would you be surprised if I tols you that our NI friends think the Giants are going to win?

Keith says it is in fact cold in Aberystwyth, don't worry Keith it will soon warm up with all the hot air coming across the Irish Sea from Belfast

Intro time and still no ref

Giants take to the ice yes Stevie Lyle is alive

Our referee finally makes an appearence and it is Mr Boniface

The link our friends inh NI was wanting is now on the Inferno Forum

Our DEVILS take to the ice
