Default MK Lightning v Sheffield Steelers - Sat 25/11/17 F.O. 1900

Tonight see's the return of ice hockey to it's rightful place of Saturday night in Milton Keynes, with the visit of Sheffield Steelers looking likely to produce a large crowd at Planet Ice.

Home Team - Milton Keynes Lightning

Netminders

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

Defencemen

#2 Carl Hudson (A) (CAN)
#5 Ed Knaggs (u23)
#15 James Griffin
#24 Quin Pompi (USA)
#42 Paul Phillips (A) (USA)
#50 Matt Nickerson (USA)

Forwards

#10 Tommy Mele (USA)
#11 Lewis Hook (u23)
#12 Guillame Doucet (CAN)
#14 Alex Forbes (u23)
#16 Ben Foster (USA)
#17 Ashley Tait
#19 Kyle Essery (CAN)
#21 Luc Johnson (u23)
#22 Denny Kearney (USA)
#25 Kevin King (C) (CAN)
#26 Christian Isackson (USA)
#45 Ludwig Karlsson (SWE)
#72 Glenn Billing (u23)
#78 Francis Verreault-Paul (CAN)
#89 Jonathan Boxill

Head Coach: Peter Russell

With no suspension, and hopefully no injury worries, tonight will see Pete Russell able to ice a full roster of 3 defensive pairings (albeit with Kyle Essery filling in again no doubt) and 4 forward lines. Kevin King and Gui Doucet are currently tied on 11 goals each as our most prolific scorers in the EIHL, with King (22pts) slightly edging the points total with 11 assists compared to Doucet's (21pts) 10 assists.

However Denny Kearney is currently our leading points scorer in all competitions, with 32pts (10g+22a) in 24 games. Hopefully Kearney can make the difference tonight, as he was unable to ice in our only previous game against the Steelers up in Sheffield. During which, Lightning managed to run the game close all the way to the end, finally succumbing to a PPG with 18s left on the clock, for Steelers to win the game 4-3.

Away Team - Sheffield Steelers

#75 Robert Dowd
#76 Levi Nelson (CAN)
#77 Andre Deveaux (BAH)
#90 John Armstrong (CAN)
#92 Jonas Westerling (SWE)

Head Coach: Paul Thompson

The Steelers currently sit 4th in the EIHL league standings, 1 place and 2pts ahead of Lighting in 5th, having played 2 less games. Their away form hasn't been brilliant so far in the EIHL, having won 3, lost 4 (1 in OT), but they do boast the best GA stats, having conceded just 40 goals in 17 games, compared to MKL's 65 in 19 games. They've also scored 6 more than Lightning, despite having played two less games.

Sheffield Steelers currently have the best performing powerplay unit (30.4%) and best penalty kill success (89.4%) in the EIHL.

Earlier this week, Coach Thompson suggested that Levi Nelson may not travel to MK this weekend, having taken a heavy hit into the boards last weekend, as the Steelers travelled to Europe for three games in the Continental Cup.

Previous fixtures this season:

Steelers 4 - 3 MKL

Doors open at Planet Ice MK at 1800, with face off expected around 1900

I will be live updating the forum from the game, plus there should be the usual Twitter updates @MKL_Matchnight

Good evening from Planet Ice MK, Tag Taylor’s is busy tonight, with a healthy orange glow to it. We’re looking at near on capacity, somewhere in the region of 2000 tickets sold by this morning apparently!
