    Hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it looks like Steelers could be without Robert Dowd for the rest of the season, what a loss that would be, think he may be their top scorer, and being British is irreplaceable.

    Nobody wants to see that - Dowd is a crucial part of the Steelers' team. Am I right in thinking Armstrong is also out?

    Wonder what some members of this forum would say about the non reaction from any Sheffield player after a knee that has put a star player out probably for the year?

    This is sad bad news, even if it is Sheffield.

    Thommo will no doubt view the injury as a get out of Jail free Card. How could we be competitive this season when my No1 scoring threat is out for the remainder of the season. Lots of spin and bull and the nieve will swallow it.

    They’re holding their own now - a good chance to go and win it in the 3rd. Playing well.

    I actually watched the game and steelers played well. Unlucky bounce with 2.30 remaining and Matheson put the puck in his own net - he looked gutted. Minsk definitely looked the better team, but steelers did a good job at getting under their skin. The continental Cup is miles tougher this year compared to last year.

    No matter how much the Steelers are detested, it is actually hard not to feel some sympathy for the coach and the team who are blighted with injuries, particularly long-term injuries of his players. And Thommo would only be human for being frustrated - a weakened, less competitive Steelers is not good for the league.

    It goes without saying that any coach would first and foremost be more devastated for the health of the individual than the success of the team. I don't think for a minute Thommo would milk a sad situation like that with spin and bull.

    Have to say well done to Sheffield. They won today's Continental Cup game 2-0 and thus take third place in the group of four. Gold medal game later today.
