Good morning hockey fans. Join me (Russky) from 6pm this evening when we will be bringing you live text match commentary on the above mentioned game.

If you have a comment (printable) or prediction you wish to share with the other viewers, please send it to

Until then I leave you to enjoy your day.

Good evening. Hope all is well with you.

Our texter Kettdevil has reported in

Also we have Andy Harris who is a longtime Devils fan, now based in Dundee

Warm up coming to a close with only Scott Hotham scratched from the Devils line up, so Lordo is kitted and icing tonight

Devils playing in predominantly white this evening.

Two predictions so far, from Pat who predicts 2-1 for Devils and Darren who is very optinistic of a 4-0 Devils win

The ref is Neil Wilson and the Linos are Allan Ward and Colin Connor

Warm up over

Latest scores from other games: Sheffield 1 Belfast 1; Blaze 0 Fife 1; Manchester 1 Nottingham 0; Edinburgh 0 Braehead 0

Mark Gough will be happy with any kind of win

especially after last might.

I am assuming for the Devils.

It cant be long til the Intros and Anthems

Like most Scottish rinks they have the old curling targets at either end of the rink so if they get bored playing hockey well they have another option

Devils on the ice for the warm up

Not many Devils fans have made the journey up. It might just be our two texters!!
