Default MK Lightning v Guildford Flames - Sat 03/02/18 F.O. 1900

Well, where to begin....after a somewhat eventful week in the world of MK Lightning I'm sure I'm not the only one who's hoping the team can take to the ice tonight with clear heads and concentrate on their hockey.

With the early season form, and at times good luck, rapidly slipping away Lightning are slowly dropping away from those above them in the league and are in danger of moving to the foot of the conference table.

Welcoming conference rivals Guildford Flames back to Planet Ice MK tonight, both teams will be itching to come away with the two points on offer.

Home Team - Milton Keynes Lightning

Netminders

#1 Jordan Hedley (u23)
#20 Miika Wiikman (SWE)
#90 Jindrich Pacl (CZE)

Defencemen

#2 Carl Hudson (A) (CAN)
#5 Ed Knaggs (u23)
#15 James Griffin
#24 Quin Pompi (USA)
#42 Paul Phillips (A) (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

After a huge performance last Saturday, beating the Sheffield Steelers 5-2 at home, the team will consider themselves unlucky not to have picked up further points in the two games since. Having taken a 2-0 lead at Guildford on Sunday night it would appear the team ran out of steam and conceded three goals in the first 10mins of the final period to come away empty handed. Then in a mid-week fixture against Manchester Storm, again taking the lead, the team managed to keep the scores even for the majority of the game. However three goals, including an empty netter, in the final 13mins saw Storm take the points with a slightly deceptive 4-1 scoreline.

Away Team - Guildford Flames

Netminders

#1 Chris Carrozzi (CAN)
#33 Michael Will
#41 Brian Stewart (CAN)

Defencemen

#4 Brennan Yadlowski (CAN)
#7 Kevin Phillips
#8 Carl Ackered (SWE)
#12 Mike Krieg (USA)
#20 Tomas Nechala (SVK)
#44 Jesse Craige (CAN)
#82 Jeremy Lundin (USA)

Forwards

#5 Ben Davies
#14 Charles Wells (CAN)
#18 Brett Ferguson (CAN)
#21 Mikael Lidhammar (SWE)
#22 Geoff Walker (CAN)
#24 Richard Krogh (u23)
#27 Ian Watters (CAN)
#40 Rhett Rachinski (CAN)
#48 Ben Campbell
#51 Kruise Reddick (CAN)
#57 Liam Stewart
#90 John Dunbar (CAN)

Head Coach: Paul Dixon

Having beaten Lightning and the Edinburgh Capitals last weekend, Coach Dixon and the team find themselves in the driving seat to take a top 8 place at the end of the season, currently sitting 6th in the table, 10pts and two games in hand over 8th placed Braehead Clan.
Despite currently sitting second in the Patton Conference, 7pts behind Manchester Storm, they have 5 games in hand so will no doubt have one eye on taking the conference title in their inaugural elite league season.

With defencemen #8 Ackered (50pts) and #44 Craige (48pts) registering 98 points between them so far this season and forward #90 Dunbar a further 55pts, it's fair to say the team were extremely shrewd in their recruitment at the start of the season.

#10 Mele (injured)
#19 Essery (injured)
#20 Wiikman (injured)
#21 Johnson (2 way)
#22 Kearney (2 of 3 game suspension)

I'm assuming that Griff will once again be used as a forward to give us 3 full lines.
