Coach's Dutiaume and Hutchins

The FiFab Fife Flyers returned to action looking to make amends for their back-to-back defeats last weekend when they took on rivals Edinburgh Capitals in Challenge Cup at Fife Ice Arena.

Flyers welcomed Phil Paquet to the line up for the first time this season and his presence on the ice was felt immediately as Fife created the more of the scoring chances in the opening period. 

Flyers created a number of opportunities early in the 1st period but didn't test Travis Fullerton too much until Ric Jackman fired a shot from inside the blue to put Flyers 1-0 up. 

Shortly after Carlo Finucci came close to doubling Fife's lead as he fired a shot off the Capitals bar.

As the opening period was coming to a close Flyers found themselves on the powerplay for the first time in the game, and David Turon doubled Fife's lead after a shot from Shayne Stockton squeezed passed Travis Fullerton, making it 2-0 at 19:43.

Another dominant period saw Flyers look to extend their lead but were unable to find a way passed Edinburgh netminder Travis Fullerton in the 2nd period.

Carlo Finucci came closest in the 2nd period but was unable to find the back of the net and the score remained the same going into the 3rd period.

Goals from Yevgeni Fyodorov and Mason Wilgosh for Edinburgh in the 3rd period saw them tie the game and take the game to overtime.

Flyers had chances to win the game in overtime but it was Edinburgh's Jared  Staal who won the game for the visitors.
