Reading results off the table is a risk in any sport. Top team Coventry Blaze verus bottom club Hull Stingrays might have seemed like a home banker. Possibly tired by a 5-4 win in Hull last night, an early Coventry lead was snuffed out by two goals for the visitors down to lax defending. It was 2-2 at the end of the first period and 3-3 at the end of the second before Blaze scored two goals in quick succession in the third to secure the points with a 5-3 win.
For the third Sunday in a row there were no fights whereas a friend saw four at a game in Canada last night. However, entertainment was provided by the 'dancing queen' among the small but fanatical group of Hull supporters.
