Coventry Blaze bounce back to beat in-form Dundee Stars

ICE HOCKEY: A WEEKEND of mixed fortunes for the Coventry Blaze concluded with a faultless win against playoff hopefuls Dundee Stars on Sunday night.

After losing out by seven goals to five on Saturday night against table topping Cardiff, the Blaze bounced back in tremendous style by putting four past the Scottish outfit, who are Blaze’s biggest rivals in the race to secure the final playoff spot.

Despite being short-benched once again without the services of Jim Jorgensen, Josh Godfrey or Kevin Noble, Danny Stewart’s men dug deep on both nights – though it proved too big of a challenge on Saturday against the Devils.

Head coach Danny Stewart said: “It’s not an easy to rink to come into especially with the trip up, but we just wanted to stick to our strengths which is our speed.

“We created a lot of opportunities early and were fortunate enough to bury a couple and we hung on from then.

“Credit to the guys, they came in here, played a smart road game and executed.”

Coventry now sit 8th in the Elite League, three points ahead of Dundee – who have two games in hand – and six points ahead of Edinburgh who have four games in hand.
