    The Devils travel to Sweden for their final CHL hoping to do the double over the Vaxjo Lakers of the elite SweHL.

    After that amazing victory at the IAW last week lightening can strike twice and the DEVILS can endorse their arrival in the Champions Hockey League

    MNL will bring you its unique play by play coverage of the game and as usual score predicxtions are welcomed to matchnightlive@gmail.com.

    So draw up that IKEA chair and follow the action with us

    Got to be honest I could care less about this game now if I tried, it wouldn't bother me at all if the Devils just phoned this one in and took a hammering, the result doesn't matter, we can't progress, so just get this game over with and get back to elite league duties and sort ourselves out there.

    Totally disagree.
    The game also matters enough for Mr King as he’s traveling to it.

    Just my opinion, nothing more, just feel this is a game we could do without now

    If you wanna be the best you've gotta have experience playing against the best. Granted in terms of timing the Lakers game isn't ideal but in terms of player development I say it's vital. The more experience you have playing CHL teams the more it will lead to your player progression.

    It may not mean anything but Vaxjo lost their first league game of the season yesterday and have dropped into 2nd place.

    Not so sure that’s a good omen for us.
    It should be a cracking game. I can’t imagine Steve flying in for a game that we are not going to play our full potential in, that would be embarrassing.

    so how are we going to be able to watch the game? It's on Premier, but is Premier Player going to be geoblocked? Or through the CHL website?

    In Cardiff they're showing it at shooters/bierkeller
    http://www.cardiffdevils.com/news/champions-league-live-big-screen/
    In U.K. It's on Premier (paid for)
    For those not in the UK, physically or virtually, it should be streaming on the CHL site.

    just downloaded premier player as i have premier sports but i'll most likely be in the rink.... if you happen to be there and there's a signal (!) and you fancy huddling around an iPhone you're more than welcome :)

    For anyone who doesn't have Premier Sports, download the browser 'Opera'. It has a built in VPN feature, meaning you can disguise the country you are located in and watch the player even if blocked. It is a one-button push to activate so don;t worry if you're a technophobe (the button is to the left of where you would type in a website address / search).

    I fear a backlash given their media's reaction to the defeat in Cardiff, but if we gain some confidence and consistency of play out of it then that would be perfect.

    I've downloaded a free VPN literally called 'FREE VPN for iPhone and iPad' and I then airplay to Apple TV and watch it via the CHL ap. works a treat - just watched the panthers game.

    The result might mean little but this game can def be a positive learning experience again to the players and the office team to see how Vaxjo operate behind the scenes etc. Occasions like this are building the foundation if we and other UK teams want to reach the next level.

    I still think it's insane that the Devils are playing against a team that has the 2017 no.5 draft pick on their roster! Crazy.
