Welcome to the epic

Tonight we played the Steelers in the play off final. Having won the league, the cup & the conference trophies this was a chance at a grand slam. We went 3-1 up, 5-4 down, equalised at 5-5 and then went into overtime. This ended goalless so we had a 5th period. It was like the final round in a Rocky movie both teams exhausted and just slugging away on instinct. Then the steelers got the golden goal. It was heartbreaking but it was a great season

Trophies

The Cardiff Devils had the league (on the left) & challenge cup trophies on display tonight. We also won a third tonight – the conference trophy which doesn’t mean that much but makes it 3 out 3 so far, with the playoffs in two weeks time.

Champions!

The Cardiff Devils were away to Sheffield tonight. A win would mean we were league champions. I expected a really tight, aggressive game but we scored after 26 seconds and the game was easier than anticipated. We won 6-2, thus ending a 20 year wait to lift the trophy again.
It was a long trip to Sheffield and back, but what a day.

A comeback

We flew to Belfast today to watch the Devils play our main title rivals the Giants. We were awful for the first two periods and were 3-0 down. Then we destroyed them in the the 3rd period to win 4-3. It felt like a cup win and everyone was in a state of shock, but what a night
