Default MK Lightning v Cardiff Devils - Sat 23/09/17 F.O. 19:00

The challenging fixtures come thick and fast at this level, as this weekend we welcome the current league and challenge cup champions to Planet Ice MK.

Today's game is Lightning's next fixture in the challenge cup rounds.

Having already faced the Devils a fortnight ago in Wales, Pete Russell and his team will have a much better idea of the challenge ahead, with the Cardiff side winning 5-2, including an ENG and a few giveaways by the MKL defence.

Home Team - Milton Keynes Lightning

Netminders

#1 Jordan Hedley (u23)
#20 Miika Wiikman (SWE)

Last weekend was a mixed bag for Pete and the team, having picked up two points with a solid victory at home to Braehead, before travelling to Manchester and being comprehensively outplayed by Storm, losing 6-2.
This weekend we are again likely to be short-benched with a number of imports still unable to ice.

MKL could potentially be without the following, leaving us with just 6 D & 9 F for the game:

#5 Knaggs (2 way)
#19 Essery (Inj)
#20 Wiikman (Inj)
#21 Johnson (2 way)
#25 King (Susp)
#72 Billing (2 way)
#89 Boxill (Inj)
#90 Odrobny (Inj)

The big question all Lightning fans are waiting to be answered, is will either of our import netminders be fit for tonights game?

More to the point if either Wiikman or Shemmy are able to start will they be able to finish too? O.o

Today's odds courtesy of paddypower (other good bookmakers aren't available as they don't seem to do challenge cup games for some reason)

MK firm underdogs at 7/4 win, 23/10 (after 60 mins)
Cardiff 2/5 the win, 8/11 (after 60 mins)


Can't say I disagree with that esp with Kevin King sitting out tonight.



Bet responsibly!

Shemmy did arrive at the rink very early today, and headed straight to the changing rooms, so fingers crossed hes fit to play!
