Default MK Lightning v Cardiff Devils - Mon 01/01/18 F.O. 1800

Monday night is hockey night this week in Milton Keynes, as we welcome the Cardiff Devils to town, with MKL fans hoping it'll be a case of New Year, new start for the team. Having lost to the Devils in Cardiff in their last game of 2017, Lightning have now gone four league games without a win for the first time this season, whilst Cardiff moved on to 12 consecutive league wins.

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

With an improved performance, and changes to the lines, Lightning showed glimpses of their early season form despite the 6-3 loss in Cardiff, however yet again the team suffered with discipline problems, giving away a few silly penalties.

#12 Gui Doucet picked up the man of the match award against his old team, scoring his 16th league goal of the season, and assisting #10 Tommy Mele with his 10th.

Away Team - Cardiff Devils

Netminders

#30 Thomas Murdy
#33 Ben Bowns

Defencemen

#4 Mark Louis (CAN)
#6 Drew Paris (CAN)
#17 Mark Richardson (A)
#20 Gleason Fournier (CAN)
#24 Andrew Hotham (CAN)
#25 Tyson Strachan (CAN)
#29 Craig Moore (u23)
#52 Callum Buglass (2 way)
#91 Bryce Reddick (USA)

Forwards

#8 Matthew Myers (A)
#18 Layne Ulmer (CAN)
#21 Luke Piggott (CAN)
#23 Patrick Asselin (CAN)
#27 Joey Haddad (CAN)
#37 Tomas Rutkis (2 way) (LAT)
#41 Josh Batch
#42 Matt Pope (CAN)
#47 Jake Morissette (C) (CAN)
#71 Andrew Lord (CAN)
#80 Paul Crowder (CAN)
#81 Justin Faryna (CAN)
#85 Sean Bentivoglio (CAN)
#88 Joey Martin (A) (CAN)

Head Coach: Todd Kelman

With a twelve game win streak already under their belts, the Devils will be hoping Monday night won't be a case of unlucky number 13! With a goal and two assists, #85 Sean Bentivoglio picked up the Devils man of the match award, whilst #24 Andrew Hotham picked up two goals to move onto 33 league points, just one behind #88 Joey Martin.

Previous results this season:

Devils 5 - 2 MKL (Challenge Cup) - Highlights
MKL 5 - 2 Devils (Challenge Cup) - Highlights
Devils 6 - 3 MKL (EIHL) - Highlights

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

I'll be at the game, and assuming no signal issues, usual update service will resume, along with Twitter updates @MKL_Matchnight

No details published as yet from the EIHL as to possible officials for the game, however in line with recent changes made by the board of directors, this could be the first game at MK to be overseen by the 4-person officiating system, which is due to take effect for all EIHL and Challenge Cup games from January.

Fingers crossed that won't lead to even more time spent killing penalties for the Lightning players.

My guess is he's being rested for Wednesday, whether he's picked up a knock at some point, who knows!
