Fife Flyers 2 Dundee Stars 4 – Elite League
Andy Little made his first competitive start for the Flyers in all EIHL competitions – previously Andy had made seven appearances in relief in the 272 games that he has backed up the Flyers.
For Shane Owen it was the first game that he has missed in his Flyers career which has seen him start in all of his previous 289 competitive EIHL games over his three spells with the club. He has played the last 159 consecutive games which was the 7th longest “Ironman” streak for the Flyers in the EIHL era.
It means that there are now only two ever presents this seasons – Max Humitz and Aleksi Mäkelä.
Congratulations to Jonas Emmerdahl who made his 200th appearance for the Flyers – the 14th player to play 200 or more games for the Flyers in the EIHL era.
Johan Eriksson picked up his first penalty minutes of the season.
Troy Lajeunesse became the first Flyers player to go into triple digits for shots on goal as he registered his 103rd in game.

Dundee Stars 10 Fife Flyers 1 – Elite League
The defeat equals the Flyers worst ever EIHL defeat which was on 12th November 2011 when they went down by the same score line at Braehead against the Clan.

The Dundee Stars previous biggest win against the Flyers in EIHL competition was a 7-1 victory in the Challenge Cup on 11th December 2011. It equals Stars biggest win all time against the Flyers having beaten them at Kirkcaldy in the Autumn Cup Final on 31st October 2009 by the same score line.
The six goals conceded in the second period is a new record for goals given up by Flyers in a period in all EIHL competitions, five having previously been the most conceded.

Glasgow Clan 4 Fife Flyers 1 – Elite League
Clan’s opening goal after 66 seconds was the fastest they have scored this season.
The empty net goal conceded was the Flyers seventh such on the season and it was also shorthanded, also the 7th conceded on the season.
The Flyers scored a powerplay goal to prevent going seven games in a row without scoring with the man advantage which would have been their longest drought this season.
