 Fife Flyers vs Manchester Storm game summary

Fife Flyers, sponsored by Arnold Clark Mercedes-Benz, welcomed Ryan Finnerty's Manchester Storm to Fife Ice Arena for the first time this season on Wednesday night.

Former Flyers forward Chris Auger returned to Fife Ice Arena with Manchester Storm after returning to the Storm's line-up having been out since the start of the season with an upper body injury.

Heading into their first game of 2018 Flyers had come out the month of December having recorded 8 league wins from 9 games, and they looked to continue that streak into 2018.

Ričards Birziņš put the home side 1 up with a rocket of a shot at 9:42 on the powerplay, the first of 5 powerplay goals from the home side. 

Evan Bloodoff made it 2-0 to Fife at 11:53 with both sides having a player sitting in the penalty box. A few minutes later the game started to heat up and as a result Storm captain Jay Rosehill was eject from the game after a series of incidents. 

On the resulting seven minute powerplay Carlo Finucci fired the puck beyond Mike Clemente to put Flyers 3 up at 14:33 and send the home fans wild.

29 seconds into the second period and Flyers made it 4-0 when Peter LeBlanc fired from out wide to beat Mike Clemente once again on the powerplay.

As the second period was coming to a close Flyers defenceman Ian Young made it 5-0 with Fife's fourth powerplay goal at 37:48.

Manchester got their first goal of the game at 41:01 when Luke Moffat beat Andy Iles, just over a minute later Flyers got their 5th powerplay goal of the game when Shayne Stockton made it 6-1 at 42:07.

Andrew McKinney got a second goal for Manchester late on in the game as the game finished 6-2 to Flyers.
