    Devils Vs Flyers - 19 02 20 - League

    Must win the home games however ugly. Two points all that matters. Baffled why our big clear-the-zone defence man was scratched in favour of another player. Don't think Flyers' smaller forwards would have taken advantage had Louis been patrolling. Outstanding performance from the Flyers'...

    Devils Vs Flyers - 19 02 20 - League

    All home games are must-wins now. Devils can only control that, not the results of other games. Flyers are definitely not pushovers. They rightly will be motivated by their defeat of Steelers. They are perfectly capable of beating the Devils. And long distance travel doesn't seem to affect the...

    Guildford Flames v Cardiff Devils - 16/02/20 - League

    Think it has been a massive missed opportunity earlier not to bring in some natural goalscoring talent especially with Pope and Linglet out. The game schedule for the run-in is busy. To be in a position where the team is plugging forward positions with players who are primarily defence men is...

    Guildford Flames v Cardiff Devils - 16/02/20 - League

    The key to the next few weeks is winning the home games. Devils are just about managing to do that right now, if not emphatically. They must win those. Hopefully they can then pick up a few points on the road. There is no doubt that the two week break during Team GB qualifiers hurt the Devils'...

    Guildford Flames v Cardiff Devils - 16/02/20 - League

    Struggling to understand how the same player can score 4 unanswered goals against a team. Surely after his second goal the opposition would realise he is a major threat who needs shutting down...

    Cardiff Devils v Coventry Blaze - 15/02/20 - League

    We only went and did it. Settle for that. Devils took the lead in p1, stank for much of p1 and 2 against a faster, fitter, more disciplined Blaze and then Devils started playing to their capabilities. Got to grind out the home wins to stand a chance of chasing Steelers (well done tonight Dundee...

    Cardiff Devils v Coventry Blaze - 15/02/20 - League

    Blaze scoring for fun and are doing well, particularly since the arrival of their new goalie who is very experienced. A very tough game ahead, Always feel a bit deflated after a break in game schedule. It's been too long without competition. There is always a niggling doubt that our team won't...

    No. Lived and worked in Plymouth for several years. An ideal location for your Summer vacation..... but nothing else.

    Giants Vs Devils - 1 + 2 Feb 20 - League

    Great, hard fought result in a disrupted game. Well done Devils.... Joey Haddad and the pp grabbing the game early. The best team performances are often in tight, low scoring games. Repeated plexi glass breakages could easily have derailed the Devils' concentration but they put up a gritty...

    Giants Vs Devils - 1 + 2 Feb 20 - League

    Devils 0/4 on the pp tonight. Giants score a pp goal to win.

    Nottingham Panthers v Cardiff Devils - 29/01/20 - CC Semi-Final 2

    A gritty, courageous comeback with excellent performance from Bownsey in p3. Fans still have a right to comment on poor plays though. Why is it moaning when it is simply observation?

    Nottingham Panthers v Cardiff Devils - 29/01/20 - CC Semi-Final 2

    Devils have had one or two pp chances. This year they don't seem to be able to capitalise on these when they need to. Yet apparently the Devils have a reasonable pp % this season. Where is Andrew Hotham when we need him?

    Nottingham Panthers v Cardiff Devils - 29/01/20 - CC Semi-Final 2

    We used to detest the Steelers. This year they are to be admired. Aaron Fox, an experienced coach in Europe, was brought in overhaul and turn things around. He is doing his job, They corrected weaknesses in their play very quickly, and changed players when necessary. In any sport, there has to...

    Nottingham Panthers v Cardiff Devils - 29/01/20 - CC Semi-Final 2

    Playing the 2nd leg away in a competition, especially the final stages, is always brutal when the away team doesn't go there with a lead. Didn't Panthers offer their fans reduced ticket prices to fill the arena? A large crowd will always help the home team. Devils have struggled in the...

    Sointu moves on

    Every team requires one or two calm experienced skilled veteran players who know how to win and how to galvanise their teammates. Our own team has benefitted in recent years from that.

    Cardiff Devils v Nottingham Panthers - 26/01/20 - League

    Mom for me is Bownsey. Excellent performance from him. Well taken goals in our golden p2 but, boy, p3 was a bit of a shambles. So much Devils'puck possession pinched away by the Panthers and our failure to clear the zone to give breathing space is still a worry. Very important win tonight and...

    Cardiff Devils v Nottingham Panthers - 26/01/20 - League

    Don't know the injury situation with Panthers but you can bet they will be fired up tonight. Still in the mix in the top 4... why wouldn't they try hard? Let's hope the Devils are prepared for this.

    Devils Vs Panthers - 22 Jan 20 - CC Semi Final

    If it hadn't been for that shambolic performance in p2, the Devil's would have been going to Nottingham with a 2 or 3 goal lead. As usual, they don't make it easy for themselves. Another lapse like that next week and they are out of the competition. Don't know what is going on with this team...

    Devils Vs Panthers - 22 Jan 20 - CC Semi Final

    Panthers still carrying injuries since Continental Cup two weeks ago. However, they have coach Wallace's work ethic and a winning mentality at the moment. Something the Devils need to reboot tonight. Even if the Devils win this leg, think the Panthers will win overall in the second leg on their...

    Stars v Devils - 19 Jan 20 - League

    Congratulations to the Stars..... a hardworking team with plenty of spirit and no expectations who seem to be able to manage the distances they travel. Had us down for 4th place finish in the League this season. And that's probably about right. Devils simply not consistent enough to deserve...
