My texters have gone on a "Stovie" hunt

Dan is asking if anyone else is haviong problems with the webcast, let us know at

SoG for 1st period Flyers 9 DEVILS 9

What we need is THREE periods of consistent hockey

These temporary lapses must be eradicated.

The long journey home will be much more pleasant if they stick to the gameplan

People must be thinking I have had a Coaching Manual as an early Christmas presant

do you believe it The Weazel is 54 next month. I wonder if he has grown

Steve Moria hits the same mark a month later although there was an unconfirmed report that he was seen queuing up for his bus pass

Ice is ready waiting for the teams

Webcast apparently jitters all the time, poor quality

Devils backl on ice

According to Devils scorer Clare their 2nd goal was their 2,000 EIHL goal

Flyers appear

Cenwyn says Devils not blowing Flyers away - just doing enough - professional job

That was after a greatby Jesse Mychan, Muir didn't like it one bit

End of 2nd period Flyers 0 DEVILS 3

Peters report - Very comfortable indeed. Flyers look short of confidence and without Nickerson Devils are bullying them out of the place. Flyers fans getting at referee but they should be getting at their defence which includes "superstar" Tom Muir

Sog for 2nd period Flyers 3 DEVILS 15 making it 12-24 after 2 periods

Clare you should get a life, Devils 3rd goal by Haddad is Devils 900th EIHL goal on the road

I thought you girls all went out on the last Friday befire Xmas

A goal finally at the O Giants 1 Blaze 0 after 49 minutes

Joey Haddad goal was his 10th of the season

The Myers, Clarson, Haddad line have scored all Devils goals so far

The very line the Clan referred to as the Goon Line

It would be interesting to know if Franny has managed to match the Flyers top 2 lines with ours, letting our so called 3rd line loose

Cenwyn cannot make his mind up about the referee. Flyers claim that they are hard done by has merit

Devils are playing within themselves just controlling the game with the least amount of effort. The classical on the road game ploy
