Steelers shut out the Flyers – Steelers 6 – 0 Flyers

It was another one of our £5 (plus fees!) games on Wednesday night as we took on the Fife Flyers in Elite League action.

Team news was that Daine Todd and Keaton Ellerby were back in the line-up with Brandon Whistle also suiting up in orange for the first time outside of exhibition hockey this season.

Brendan Connolly and John Armstrong were still missing from the line-up and were also joined by Martin Latal after taking a rough hit on Saturday night and Alex Graham who played through injury last time out.

The Steelers starting netminder tonight was Barry Brust, backed up by Rok Stojanovic.

The starting 6 for both teams announced as:

It was as comfortable as a game could be for the Steelers as they dominated all 60 minutes against the Flyers.

It was 2 goals for the Steelers in the first period courtesy of Kevin Schulze and Tanner Eberle.

The first goal coming at 12.03 when Evan Mosey found a cross ice pass to set up Schulze who had all the time in the world to shoot short side on Flyers goalie Shane Owen and put us in front.

The second goal coming at 17.46. The goal originated via a shot towards goal from Davey Phillips which hit the man in front and it fell nicely for Eberle to finish from point blank range.

The Steelers taking a 2 goal lead into the second period.

The second period started with an exchange of penalties with the Steelers taking advantage of their opportunity at 35.20 when Justin Hodgman found Matias Sointu at the back post with with all the space needed to see it home.

75 seconds later and it was 4-0 for the Steelers as Adrian Saxrud Danielsen was once again on the scoresheet as he went back and forth with Evan Mosey to put the puck home at an open back post.

It was 5-past at 38.48 as Matias Sointu continued his scoring run (what a start to his Steelers career!), Justin Hodgman with the good work down the right wing who went in on Owen but found Sointu as the backdoor who again found all the space to slot it home.

A comfortable 5-0 lead heading into the final period.

The Steelers went into cruise-control in the 3rd period and finished the game off at 58.53 with a 6th goal when Anthony Deluca found himself at the left wing hash marks, spun on the spot and fired it low past Owen.

A complete 60 minute dominance to take the game 6-0.

A shut out for Barry Brust meant he picked up his first Man of the Match!

We are next in action on Saturday night against the Belfast Giants – See you there Sheffield.
