Ian calling it 3 -2 devils

a bit distracted by the rugby.. talk between yourselves

Been asked to let anyone heading to the rink know that due to a request from Premier Sports there will be no highlights and the Intro tonight will be a very shortened version as they don't want the lights turned off.
