Heres tonights round up of news ....
Ayr Scottish Eagles' bid to complete a clean sweep of all the British ice
hockey honours took a knock tonight against Manchester Storm at the Nynex
Ayr, winners of the Benson and Hedges Cup winners and runaway leaders of The
Express Cup, blew a chance to open up a six point lead at the top of Superleague
by losing 5-3.
Shawn Byram gave Ayr a good start with an early goal on the powerplay against
his old team, only for Stefan Ketola and Brad Rubachuk (powerplay) to turn
things around in Manchester's favour.
Karry Biette tied things up, before Kevin Hoffman restored Manchester's lead
with both teams a man short because of penalties.
One-time league leaders Manchester won the final period 2-1, with Rubachuk and
Troy Neumeier on the mark, to preserve their own title hopes and end a run of
three successive defeats.
Cardiff Devils, champions in last season's inaugural Superleague, look Ayr's
They capitalised on the Scottish side's slip-up by registering their fourth
straight win with a 5-3 home success against fellow challengers Nottingham
Panthers were blitzed in the first period by goals from Steve Moria, Ivan
Matulik, Vezio Sacratini and Steve Thornton.
Jeff Sebastien pulled one back for Panthers in the second session, then Blake
Knox and Jamie Leach netted to make it 4-3.
But Matulik's second goal of the night, into an empty net just 19 seconds from
time, sealed the points for Cardiff, who are four points behind Ayr with two
games in hand.
