Default MK Lightning v Guildford Flames - Tue 26/12/17 F.O. 1800

Pete Russell and the MKL team will be looking to get back to winning ways on Boxing Day, as we take on Patton Conference rivals The Guildford Flames, in the home leg of back to back games against fellow EIHL newbies.

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)
#79 Evan Stoflet (USA)

Forwards

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

Head Coach: Peter Russell

Despite succumbing to Coventry Blaze on the 23rd, Lightning will be looking to extend their current run of three wins at home, however with Flames flying high in the table, it'll be no easy feat.

Gui Doucet still leads the goal scoring charts, with 15 goals in 27 games (+12 assists for 27pts), however Captain King is the overall points scorer so far with 13g+18a, for 31pts in 26 games.

Away Team - Guildford Flames

Netminders

#1 Chris Carrozzi (CAN)
#33 Michael Will
#41 Brian Stewart (CAN)

Defencemen

#4 Brennan Yadlowski (CAN)
#7 Kevin Phillips
#8 Carl Ackered (SWE)
#19 Rasmus Edstrom (SWE)
#20 Tomas Nechala (SVK)
#44 Jesse Craige (CAN)
#82 Jeremy Lundin (USA)

Forwards

#5 Ben Davies
#14 Charles Wells (CAN)
#18 Brett Ferguson (CAN)
#21 Mikael Lidhammar (SWE)
#22 Geoff Walker (CAN)
#24 Richard Krogh (u23)
#27 Ian Watters (CAN)
#40 Rhett Rachinski (CAN)
#48 Ben Campbell
#51 Kruise Reddick (CAN)
#57 Liam Stewart
#90 John Dunbar (CAN)

Head Coach: Paul Dixon

Despite being bottom of the Patton Conference as it stands, with 6pts from 6 games, Flames currently sit 5th in the league table, and depending on Tuesday night results, could find themselves sitting 3rd by the end of the night.

With several players topping charts all over the league, the Flames have shown on multiple occasions that their brand of hockey can be lethally effective when it works. Canadian forward #90 Dunbar currently leads the league with 43pts, closely followed by Swedish defenceman #8 Ackered with 40pts. Meanwhile in the assists table, Flames occupy the top three spots, #90 Dunbar leads with 34, followed by #44 Craige with 29, and #8 Ackered with 27.

Previous results this season:

MKL 3 - 1 Flames (Pre season)
Flames 1 - 3 MKL (Pre season)
MKL 3 - 2 Flames (Challenge Cup)
Flames 2 - 3 (SO) MKL (Challenge Cup)
MKL 3 (SO) - 2 Flames (EIHL)
Flames 7 - 3 MKL (EIHL)

Doors open at Planet Ice MK at 1700, with face off expected around 1800hrs

I will be live updating the forum from the game, with the usual updates presumably for those on Twitter @MKL_Matchnight

Live Stream will be running for those unable to make the game, courtesy of Lightning Tv

MKL appear to be without:

#2 Hudson
#5 Knaggs
#10 Mele
#21 Johnson
#72 Billing
#78 Verrault- Paul

Which by my reckoning gives us:

2 NM's - 5 D - 9 F
