Dundee Stars 5 - 4 Cardiff Devils

Welcome - Croeso to MNL as we cover the Devils league encounter with the Stars at Dundee

As you can imagine very few Devils fans if any have made the long triup to Dundee so we hope to rely on Stars fans to keep us informed of events

Luckily KettDevil (Peter) has made the long trip from Bedford and having soaked up the winter sunshine in Edinburgh will shortly set off for Dundee.

if you can help us out or know of some who can email us at matchnightlive@gmail.com or you can text the MNL line 07527 625206
