Busy Fixture Schedule Gives Devils Hope of Bounce-Back

THREE FIXTURES await Cardiff Devils this week as they hope to get back on track after a difficult start to the month.  

The Devils have endured a slow start to November, having been defeated by Coventry Blaze and Nottingham Panthers over the weekend. 

The 2017/18 league champions remain in fourth position in the Elite Ice Hockey League and, with three games this week, there is plenty of opportunity to find form again. 

They begin the week by facing second-placed Fife Flyers at Ice Arena Wales tomorrow (Wednesday), followed by a trip to Milton Keynes on Saturday evening to face the Lightening, and a blockbuster clash with table-toppers Belfast Giants on Sunday afternoon.  

The heavily congested fixture list presents the Devils with a chance to close the points gap on their league rivals.

Attention will first turn to tomorrow evening’s game and shoring up the defence – on Sunday the reigning champions were badly out shot 46 to 20 by the Panthers and, but for the heroics of goaltender Ben Brown, the scoreline could have been much worse.

A repeat of their last encounter with the Flyers, a 7-2 win last month, would be greatly welcomed.

Cardiff Devils take on Fife Flyers at Ice Arena Wales tomorrow, face off 7.30pm.
