Cardiff Devils growing strong going into double header

Cardiff Devils clash with rivals Belfast Giants.

THE Cardiff Devils are looking forward to a weekend double-header following a big result against conference rivals Sheffield Steelers.

The Devils will play Belfast Giants away on Saturday before heading home to face Edinburgh Capitals at the Ice Arena Wales.

Cardiff’s Player/Manager Andrew Lord said after the match on Saturday: “I think we have learnt a lot of lesson early on about consistency, about how hard we need to play, about preparation.

“We are growing everyday, we’re getting better as a team, we are learning what it takes to win on a consistent basis.”

Following an inconsistent start, the Reds have now won four on the bounce and will hope to continue their form on the weekend.

Andrew Lord continued: “At this point in the season it’s been a good little stretch and we have got to keep it going.”

The South Wales team will head to Belfast after scoring 21 in their previous four outings. However, the Giants have won their previous six matches and will prove to be tough opposition.

Their home game, the following day, may seem like an easier challenge, with Edinburgh losing their last 10 matches. The Capitals are currently last in the play-off chase.

Cardiff are second to the Giants in the Erhardt Conference, but only on goal difference. A win would send them top and see their position in the play-off race improved. The Devils are currently sixth in theElite Ice Hockey League table, with the top eight qualifying for the play-offs.
