LAST SEVEN AT HOME: BY THE NUMBERS

Following a rollercoaster ‘first half’ of the 2023/24 Elite League season, the squad have now found incredible form as they look to surge up the standings. We take a look at the last seven fixtures at home ‘by the numbers’ in what could be a ‘grandstand’ finish for Head Coach Matt Ginn and his men.

WON = 6

The squad have put together a brilliant run at home over the last few weeks winning 6 league games at home from a possible 7! The team battled to come from behind in many of games too gaining the ‘Comeback Kings’ nickname in the process. The home wins came against Glasgow, Nottingham, Fife, Belfast, Dundee and Guildford.

Two of the fixtures were won in sudden death overtime (5-4 vs Fife, 4-3 vs Dundee)

LOST = 1

The only blemish on the ‘last seven’ record was a tough defeat at home to Cardiff Devils in which they took two points following a 6-1 victory. The team responded just days later with a big character win over a talented Belfast Giants side.

GOALS SCORED = 29

GOALS CONCEEDED = 19

SHUTOUTS = 1

Starting netminder Even Weninger secured a well deserved ‘shut-out’ during our 3-0 victory over Nottingham Panthers on Sunday 28th January 2024. Evan has had a fantastic season to date clocking in with a 92.75 save percentage in league action.

LEAGUE POINTS GAINED = 12

The late season ‘Storm Surge’ has put Head Coach Matt Ginn and the team within THREE points from FOURTH in the league standings and just SIX points from THIRD spot! Anything is possible heading into the final 13 league fixtures. (7 remain at home, 6 away)

CURRENT LEAGUE POSITION = 6th

The squad currently sit on 42 points in the standings, which is level in points with fifth placed Coventry Blaze! Cov remain ahead in the league positioning due to having one game ‘in hand’ to play. Dundee Stars sit in seventh place and also have 42 points to date! It’s incredibly tight this season, folks.

2022/23 SEASON LEAGUE FINISH = 6th

TOTAL ATTENDENCE = 12,359

A total of 12,359 fans have witnessed the last seven league fixtures at home and we’re anticipating more bumper crowds with just SEVEN league fixtures remaining at home this season! Next up it’s Dundee Stars on Friday 1st March 2024 and this is a fixture NOT to be missed with Dundee Stars currently in 7th in the standings and joint with us on 42 points, this is an incredibly important fixture and a big test for the squad. Doors open 6.30PM for a 7.30PM start. Tickets can be purchased online HERE.
