Default MK Lightning v Coventry Blaze - Sat 11/11/17 F.0. 19:00

It's Derby Day in MK tonight, as local rivals Coventry Blaze travel to Planet Ice to face Pete and the team for the 2nd time in a week. In what is sure to be a feisty encounter, the Lightning players will be looking to avenge a 5-3 defeat in Coventry last Sunday.

Last Sunday at the Skydome, MKL went down 5-3 to The Blaze, conceding an empty net goal in the final 30s to seal the game. Blaze started the game the better team, and found themselves 4-1 up after just 13mins of the 1st period, however the team showed great resilience and perseverance to rally and got the score line back to 4-3 by the end of the 2nd.
Despite huge pressure and having their 2nd disallowed goal of the game, Lightning were unable to level things up in the final period, and Blaze finally sealed the 2pts, scoring an empty net goal with 13s to play.
After the final buzzer things on the ice got a wee bit heated, with Matt Nickerson doing his best to protect the rest of the team, and there is real potential for things to be re-ignited tonight.

Away Team - Coventry Blaze

#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 (A) (USA)
#23 Brett Robinson (CAN)
#29 Luke Ferrara
#41 Adam Courchaine (CAN)
#47 Danick Paquette (CAN)
#59 Ross Venus (u23)
#71 Edgars Bebris (LAT)
#88 Marc-Olivier Vallerand (CAN)

Head Coach: Danny Stewart

Blaze currently top MKL by 2pts in the Patton Conference and 4pts in the EIHL standings, so picking up the win at home tonight will prove to be a massive boost to Pete and the team, as they face a tricky road trip up to Altrincham tomorrow night to take on Manchester Storm.

Blaze will definitely be without #23 Brett Robinson who will be serving the last of a three game suspension, and have not iced #71 Edgars Bebris for several games now.

Previous fixtures this season:

MKL 4 - 3 Blaze (pre season)
Blaze 3 - 4 MKL (pre season)
Blaze 4 - 7 MKL (Challenge Cup)
MKL 5 - 1 Blaze (Challenge Cup)
Blaze 5 - 3 MKL (EIHL)

Doors open at Planet Ice MK at 1800, with face off expected at 1900

I will be updating the forum from the game, and I'm sure there will be the usual updates on Twitter @MKL_Matchnight

Iíll go for 2 thrown out, plus 3 2+10s on each side.
Iím sure weíd like a bench clearance, but I somehow donít think Danny or Pete would allow it

These games always end up overhyped, you expect a brawl but only a few things happen.

Would rather we smashed them on the score-sheet than batter them off the ice to be honest!

I reckon either Nickerson & Paquette will drop the gloves very early doors, or itíll be a niggly game all the way through, but Iím with Raufera, think itís getting very overhyped
