Default MK Lightning v Belfast Giants - Sat 02/12/17 F.O. 1900

Saturday night is hockey night, as we welcome the Belfast Giants back to Planet Ice MK. The Giants were the first team to come to Milton Keynes in the EIHL this season, and were also the first team to face defeat as Lightning started their run of five unbeaten home games in the league. Belfast will be looking to avenge that 6-3 defeat in what is sure to be another cracking contest.

Belfast Giants will definitely be without #24 Ferland (1st of 3 game suspension for checking from behind), they will also be without Equipment Manager Jason Ellery, who will be serving the first of a two game suspension for unsportsmanlike conduct, having been penalised for abusive comments.
