Default Cardiff Devils v MK Lightning - Sat 30/12/17 F.O. 1900

This Saturday we travel west to take on the current EIHL Champions, and current Challenge Cup Champions, the Cardiff Devils at the Ice Arena Wales. The two teams couldn't have a more contrasting league form as it stands, with Lightning having lost their last three league games, whilst the Devils have won their last eleven league games.

This will be the first league meeting between the two teams, however they have met twice already in the Challenge Cup, with honours even so far, both teams winning their home game 5-2.

The Devils have the most potent special team in the league so far, with 33 goals from 116 powerplays, for a PP% of 28.45. This is far ahead of the next best team, Guildford Flames (24.67%), who have scored 37 goals from 150 powerplays.

Head Coach: Peter Russell

In their last eleven league games, Lightning have won just three (all at home), with a slump in form that has seen the team slip to 10th in the league standings.

MKL have found themselves short-handed no fewer than 144 times already this season, 14 more than any other team, which unsurprisingly has lead to them conceding 35 PPG's, the most in the league so far.

American forward, #22 Denny Kearney, is our leading scorer across all competitions (CC & EIHL), with 12 goals and 28 assists in 35 games, averaging 1.1pts per game.

Previous results this season:

Devils 5 - 2 MKL (Challenge Cup) - Highlights
MKL 5 - 2 Devils (Challenge Cup) - Highlights

Doors open at the Ice Arena Wales at 1800, with face off expected at 1900

I will be travelling and updating the forum, usual Twitter updates @MKL_Matchnight

So on paper this is not looking promising!
But how often have we said that about MKL and then surprised all

Our last couple of games have all been decided by Pps. So we need to stay out of the bin. Unfortunately Mr Darnell as we know, likes to enforce the rules very strictly.
If we can keep our heads, we could avoid a heavy defeat.

Good evening from Ice Arena Wales, my signals a bit sketchy so fingers crossed it'll be ok once inside the arena. The doors are due to open in 15mins or so, and warm up and team news in half an hour
