Should be an interesting game. So far we have won 4 lost 3 against the Blaze. (the last one being a 5-0 loss). They have won 6 out of their last 10 games. Devils are 6 wins and a draw out of their last 10. Motte is second top goalie with a 92.59 save percentage.
Its going to be a tough one. Looking forward to it though. Feels like there hasn't been a game for ages.

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 come out on fire.

Hopefully they will be playing like their hair is on fire!

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 by the way). This game was a 4 pointer.

Two massive positives..... delighted to see Evan return to the ice, and Devils'powerplay stats greatly enhanced tonight.

Slow & lethargic start from the Devils. The Blaze were all over the Devils who at times seemed like they were constantly defending in their own zone. That said the team showed great character to battle back & grind out a win. The officiating certainly didn't help. Excellent performance from Bowns & great to see Mosey back on the ice.

I think we got away that. We were certainly the better team in the 3rd but I don’t think we could have had many complaints if the score was 1-4 or 1-5 after the 2nd. We were heavily outshot after 2 and Coventry will be kicking themselves that they didn’t take advantage of the PP’s they had in the last 10 minutes of the 2nd to stretch their lead.
Having said that we showed great character and good teams find a way to win. Huge win with steelers losing.
