Week 22: Live TV game kicks things off on Friday

It’s Week 22 in the Viaplay Elite League, and the last week of games before we pause for the IIHF International Break, with nine games across three games.

We begin on Friday night in Kirkcaldy, where fife Flyers take on Manchester Storm live on Viaplay! Two places but only four points separate the teams as both fight for a spot in the playoffs.

On Saturday night, leaders Guildford head back into Belfast after their cup elimination last week. Despite that aggregate defeat, the Flames did win the game on the night to keep them unbeaten at the SSE Arena this season. In Coventry, the Blaze welcome Cardiff to the Skydome as second visit fifth, while Nottingham and Sheffield meet in their long-standing rivalry. Manchester continue their Scottish road trip against basement side Dundee, with a huge clash between Glasgow and Fife ending the night – neither side can afford to slip up if they want to make the post-season.

The Flyers complete their week with a trip to Belfast on Sunday at 4pm, while Coventry head up to Sheffield. In the day’s later start, Cardiff are back on home ice to face Nottingham.
