Default MK Lightning v Coventry Blaze - Sat 06/01/18 F.O. 1900

The Coventry Blaze are back in town this Saturday night in the 1st game of a home and away double header between the conference rivals, with both teams looking to pick up important points, a 4pt weekend for MKL would see them leapfrog the Blaze in the Elite League standings.

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 an excellent, and much improved performance from the team on Wednesday night, a 6-2 loss to Nottingham Panthers saw an end to Lightning's inaugural Challenge Cup run, leaving the team's sole focus set squarely on securing a playoff place.

With reports of a sickness bug and various ongoing injuries within the team, Lightning were without Paul Phillips and Tommy Mele for their latest game, which saw American defenseman Evan Stoflet register his first goal (and point) for the team.

Gui Doucet still leads the team for EIHL goals, currently on 16, but is closely followed by Kevin King on 14. Francis Verreault-Paul is the teams top offender with 97 PIM's from 26 league games, just edging out Matt Nickerson (88 PIM's from 29 league games).

With the team on a five game losing streak in the league, everyone will be hoping for a repeat of our last league victory, a 6-1 home win against The Blaze!

Away Team - Coventry Blaze

Netminders

#30 Renny Marr (u23)
#37 Brython Preece
#52 Kevin Nastiuk (CAN)

Defencemen

#4 Oliver Stone (u23)
#5 Jordan Stokes (u23)
#7 Dax Lauwers (USA)
#8 Gaelan Patterson (CAN)
#18 Gustav Ahnelov (SWE)
#45 Vojtech Kloz (CZE)
#56 Kevin Noble (CAN)
#58 David Clement (u23)

Forwards

#9 Ben Lake (CAN)
#16 Jordan Pietrus (C) (CAN)
#19 Ryan Dingle (A) (USA)
#23 Brett Robinson (CAN)
#29 Luke Ferrara
#41 Adam Courchaine (CAN)
#47 Danick Paquette (CAN)
#59 Ross Venus (u23)
#88 Marc-Olivier Vallerand (CAN)
#?? Dorian Peca (CAN)

Head Coach: Danny Stewart

The Blaze have also found themselves suffering from a festive dip in form, having lost their last four EIHL games, with their last victory coming in a 5-3 home win against MK Lightning. This prompted Coach Stewart to bolster the squad with the addition of Canadian forward Dorian Peca from GKS Katowice in Poland.

With Peca unlikely to feature in either game this weekend, and league top scorer Marc-Olivier Vallerand missing their last game against Nottingham Panthers through injury, it could leave the side even more short benched than normal.

Blaze 5 - 4 MKL (pre season) - Highlights

Thought you'd given up on the team?


On a different note, not many blaze fans on the train. Hoping some have travelled!
