Default Coventry Blaze v MK Lightning - Sun 24/09/17 F.O. 17:15

This evening sees the next instalment of Lightning's Challenge Cup competition, as we travel the short journey north to take on Coventry Blaze at the Skydome Arena.

Pete Russell and the team will be full of confidence after a huge victory over heavy favourites, the Cardiff Devils, at Planet Ice MK last night, whilst The Blaze will be looking to bounce back having been shut out in a 2-0 loss to The Flyers up in Fife.

Home 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)
#13 Garrett Ladd (USA)
#16 Jordan Pietrus (C) (CAN)
#19 Ryan Dingle (USA)
#23 Brett Robinson (CAN)
#24 Edgars Bebris (LAT)
#29 Luke Ferrara
#41 Adam Courchaine (CAN)
#47 Danick Paquette (CAN)
#59 Ross Venus (u23)
#88 Marc-Olivier Vallerand (CAN)

Head Coach: Danny Stewart

Blaze will be looking to set down an early marker, having had mixed results against MKL in a pair of pre-seasons challenge games, the established Elite side will be hoping to re-ignite their Challenge Cup form having lost two of their three games so far.
With captain Jordan Pietrus (3g + 4a) and Marc-Olivier Vallerand (4g + 2a) pushing their way towards the top of the league's point scoring tables, MKL will need to be aware of the offensive threat.

Away Team - Milton Keynes Lightning

Netminders

#1 Jordan Hedley (u23)
#20 Miika Wiikman (SWE)
#90 Przemyslaw Odrobny (POL)
#?? Adam Long (u23)

Defencemen

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

Forwards

#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 Johnathan Boxill

Head Coach: Peter Russell

With the return of #90 in the net, MKL will be looking to build their momentum on the road, and attempt to recreate the form displayed at Planet Ice MK, where we've already beaten Belfast, Braehead and Cardiff. Whereas away from home, we've lost to Cardiff and Manchester in competitive matches, and Coventry in pre-season.

Face off expected at 17:15

Updates for those on Twitter @MKL_Matchnight, unfortunately due to work I can't travel tonight so will not be live updating the forum, I will hopefully be able to copy bits from Twitter if I get the chance.

Assuming their were no new injuries picked up by Lighting last night, we could potentially ice a fully fit roster of forwards for the first time this season. With all 12 available I'd expect the lines to be:

Karlsson / King / Isackson
Doucet / VP / Essery
Foster / Boxill / Kearney
Hook / Tait / Forbes

I'd swap Kearney with Essery myself, will be interesting who lines up with whom.

Be surprised if they split Kearney and Doucet. Essery to go back to third line centre
And Hooky deserves the third line wing slot over Boxhill

We shall see!

Think it's quite important to get an away win under our caps esp in the CC where it's looking very tight

Odds from PaddyPower

Blaze 4/9 Lightning 13/8 (inc OT/pens)

Blaze 8/11 Draw 7/2 Lightning 21/10

Full roster, four full lines... That's a cracking price for MKL (if you got a PP account - Damn!)

At least we can all agree on the top line!

Away win tonight will be another important step for this team.
