An early start and busy morning for the Steelers on Game Day.
The team had their first opportunity to skate on the main arena ice this morning after using the practise facility yesterday afternoon.
Jerry Andersson to the session as head coach monitored happenings from the team bench.
“It was important we got the boys up early and to the rink” said Thompson “I don’t want guys hanging around their rooms and the hotel all day until game time, that’s not good for them
“I don’t think they all appreciated the idea as we drove to the arena but they will feel better for it afterwards”
The Steelers arrived back at the team hotel at 12 midday (9am British time) and will eat lunch before an afternoon sleep.
