7-1 wipeout

Coventry Blaze beat rival top team Belfast Giants 7-1 in front of the Sky TV cameras tonight. As the 17 fans who had made the trip from Ireland looked increasingly glum, Blaze supporters sang 'Oh I do like to be in the Skydome when the Blaze go skating in', their mood enhanced by the news that Edinburgh Capitals were beating Nottingham Panthers, eventually by 5-1. Hapless Giants net minder Stephen Murphy was replaced by Nathan Craze, but to no avail.

There were no fights and the greatest surprise was that charm merchant Sean McMorrow did not receive a single penalty minute to the 250 he has already spent in the sin bin this season.
