Belfast Giants back to winning ways after a disappointing run of results in the previous giving the squad a much-needed belief in their ability as the Elite League competition nears the end. Giants claimed a well-deserved home win beating Guildford Flames 7-3 maintaining slim Elite League title hopes.
Giants completed a comeback scoring five second-period goals, their highest offensive output of the season. Liam Morgan hit a double, with David Goodwin, Bobby Farnham, Jordan Smortherman, Elgin Pearce and Ryan Lowner scoring one each. Giants dared with several good opportunities in the first period but failed to capitalize. Visitors, Guildford Flames took the lead in the middle-period when Jamie Crooks tapped the puck into an unguarded net after Brett Ferguson’s effort had hit the post before Giants scored three powerplay markers within five minutes before adding another two later claiming a comfortable win at the SSE Arena.
The Giants moved back to third in the table, four points behind leaders Sheffield. The two sides meet again on Saturday 29th.
