Coventry Blaze beat championship rivals Nottingham Panthers 5-3 at the Skydome arena last night. It was a closely fought game, but Blaze defended more effectively than usual and the Panthers defence was less secure. Considerable controversy was caused when one Blaze goal was disallowed when the goal was timed at 3-3. The final goal was scored after a last minute timeout and the Panther net minder being pulled off the rink. The game ended in a brawl and a Blaze player being sent down the tunnel. At least one team I support is doing well.
